Bari vs Parma Preview
Parma captain Stefano Morrone hopes his side can build on Thursday's triumph over Sampdoria by recording beating Bari.Valeri Bojinov's late goal saw Parma edge Samp to end a nine-match winless run.
The outcome was Parma's second triumph of the campaign and lifted the Gialloblu to 16th in the standings.
"We wanted and needed this win," said Morrone. "We have taken the first step on a new path.
"But we have to continue to work hard because on Sunday we face a more important game.
"We have little time to recover but we have to get our energy back because this game is crucial for us."
Sunday's game at the San Nicola stadium is a battle between two sides that could be in a relegation fight at the end of the season.
Bari lie bottom of the standings, just two points behind Parma.
Despite the Galletti having claimed just one point in their last six games, Bari coach Giampiero Ventura believes his team is showing signs of improvement.
"To have held Chievo to a goalless draw was an important result for us considering we had seven players out injured," he said.
"The team showed a lot of determination against Chievo and I hope they can do the same against Parma on Sunday."
Bari will be bolstered by the return of midfielders Edgar Alvarez and Alessandro Gazzi, who have recovered from the injuries that saw them miss Wednesday's goalless draw at Chievo.
