Mauro Zarate and Sergio Floccari scored the goals for Lazio in their 2-0 win.
“It’s normal that you can’t win every week,” Reja declared to SkySport. “When plying your trade at the top of the standings everyone is hoping to knock you down.
“In the last two games we didn’t play to the best of our abilities but today we showed our true character.
“I was very pleased with the concentration of my men throughout the game and we sealed a very important three points.
“This side has the potential to secure important results and with personnel such as (Mauro) Zarate we have the ability to unblock the opposition.
“Credit must also be paid to my backline who are doing a great job. In moments when we are forced to sweat it out we have shown an ability to hold on, this has proved vital in seeing out results.”
