The Ponferradina measures the emergencies of the Alcorcón today

The Bercianos accumulate up to eight absences to seek the first victory at home of 2021 against an opponent who needs to win to get out of the pot.


La Ponferradina returns to El Toralín almost a month after the draw against Girona to seek their first home victory of 2021 against an Alcorcón that fights to first abandon the red lantern and then the relegation places (follow the match live on AS. com). The two teams come to this game ready to rebuild after suffering defeats on the last day that neither Bercianos nor potters deserved.

At Deportiva the rosary of injuries continues and, although Bolo will be able to count on Paris Adot and Amo, the latter after serving a sanction against Zaragoza, this week he loses Iván Rodríguez and Kaxe due to physical problems, who join Ríos and Manu Hernando in the infirmary, and neither will have the sanctioned Pablo Valcarce. In addition, Larrea, Doncel and Viedma, who returned to training after overcoming COVID-19, will not yet be on the list.

The last to arrive, Moi Delgado and Pedraza, do enter the squad, although it seems hasty that they can enter the eleven, so the coach has almost the beans counted, especially in defense. Thus, with Caro in goal, Paris will return to the right side and Amo to the center of the rear accompanying Pascanu, leaving the left-handed lane for Adri Castellano. Ahead, Sielva and Erik Morán will form in the creation area, without ruling out Aguza's entry, with Curro and Gaspar on the wings, while Dani Romera and Yuri will be the attacking couple.

For its part, Alcorcón arrives in Ponferrada after showing that it is capable of competing against anyone and it is a difficult team to defeat, but specific errors and the anemia of goals suffered by Anquela's team are preventing the potters from adding three in three: just one point out of a possible nine in the last three games. Although they have deserved more in past days, the truth is that Alcorcón is bottom with 20 points and needs to add now to start coming out of the well.

Against Ponferradina it is very possible that one of the last three signings, Nwakali, Embalo and Xisco Jiménez, have minutes. The potters will have the casualties of Bellvís and Reko, but they recover players like Laure or Gorostidi.

Throughout the week, from Alcorcón they have valued Deportiva's offensive power and the Anquela team is well aware that if they want to achieve victory in El Toralín they will have to do a great defensive job.Aces to follow:

Ponferradina: Dani Romera. The Almeria striker faces what was his team last season. Last year he scored in El Toralín wearing yellow and today he hopes to repeat with the blue and white.

Alcorcón: José León. The center-back has made a season from less to more. Not only has he become an essential defender, he also generates chances in strategy plays and scores goals. In a game in which defensive work is going to be key, his role seems fundamental.

The keys

Defense. Bolo recovers Paris Adot and Amo for a defensive line that is slowly recovering from the plague of injuries.

New. Both Moi Delgado and Pedraza, the last winter signings, will be on the list for this afternoon's game.

Effort. The tactical and pressure effort of Alcorcón is one of the best in the championship, non-negotiable values for Anquela.

Point of view. Alcorcón have corrected the lack of chances and now must refine their sights. The team generates, but lacks aim.

Highs and lows

Ponferradine. Manu Hernando, Ríos Reina, Iván Rodríguez and Kaxe, injured, will not be, like Pablo Valcarce, sanctioned. Amo return, after sanction, and Paris Adot, after injury.

Alcorcón. Reko and Bellvís will not be available for Anquela. Instead, Laure, Gorostidi and Fidel Escobar will be at your disposal again.
