Almerimar

It was a great result for us last night. Away at Valladolid.

We took an early lead with a strange but neat finish. Following their keeper not holding on to a cross from the left. Soon after that they got an equaliser with a very well worked free kick.

In the second half they took the lead with an unstoppable finish into the top right corner of the goal.

With only a minute or two left before the start of injury timein the second half we managed to score from a corner. Us scoring from a corner is just about unheard of this season. It was a bit of a scruffy goal. That does not matter now.

We held out through injury time to finish with a very important draw.

Earlier in the weekend first placed Eibar only managed to get a draw. Last night we managed to get a draw away against the 3rd placed team in La Liga 2. This keeps us one point behind Eibar and 1 point ahead of Valladolid.

There are now only 6 matches left until the end of the normal part of the season. The highest placed opposition team in our remaining matches is Burgos. They are currently 14th in the league.

Eibar and Valladolid have to play each other in the remaining matches. Plus they both have to play a number of teams looking to qualify for the playoffs.

So direct promotion via a place in the top 2 is in our own hands. Fingers crossed.

Next match is at home to Sporting Gijón on Monday 25 April.
