Chievo finally saw off the challenge of a dogged Reggina outfit courtesy of goals from Federico Cossato and Nicola Legrottaglie, and Del Neri insists his team were worthy winners.
"Reggina are a good team. We have suffered but we deserved to win," said the 'Flying Donkeys' chief.
"We don't have to make a race over the other teams, but just win our next matches, then we'll see where we are at the end.
"I think who will be more fresh in this final will surely obtain their aims."
For his part, Reggina manager Luigi De Canio could not hide his disappointment at a defeat which increases the club's relegation fears.
Reggina remain 14th in Serie A, just one point and one place above the drop-zone.
"This defeat makes our situation heavier, also because the other teams who are struggling for salvation won, except Atalanta," said De Canio.
"Probably we'll play to avoid the fourth from the bottom place with them. But the will and the personality with which my team played today gives me hope. But we must have a little luck".
