The 'Ponfe', for the 50 points that Logroñés dreams of

The Bercianos have up to seven casualties for the duel, while the Riojans want to endorse their good feelings from the last duel.


The Ponferradina wants to reach this afternoon the 'magic' figure of 50 points that is usually identified with permanence to finally think about the fight for the playoff positions that it failed to storm last day. To do this, he will have to get rid of a Logroñés who arrives at Bierzo in need of points to open a gap with the relegation zone and get closer to the figure that the Blue and Whites caress (follow the game live on

Bolo will wait at the last minute to know if he recovers any of the injured, specifically Sielva and Curro, but if he does not do so, the coach will have seven casualties for this game, since the absent in Oviedo is joined by Paris Adot, who saw the fifth yellow in the Tartiere and may not be from the game. In addition, you also have to think about dosing minutes taking into account that next Saturday another game is coming, so hitting Bolo's plans becomes more complicated than usual. In principle, Iván Rodríguez will be the replacement for Paris on the right side and the only change on the defensive line, which is completed with Caro in goal, Amo, Adri Castellano and Moi. Ahead, Erik Morán and Larrea would form in the center, with Pablo Valcarce and Doncel in the bands. Up front, the pair formed by Kaxe and Yuri could return, although Bolo could also choose to maintain the 4-2-3-1 with Aguza or Juergen behind the forward.

For its part, Logroñés is urgent to win (it has not done it since January 2, 2-1 against Mirandés) and will need the best versions of Paulino, Nano Mesa, Iñaki or Andy to try to get something positive in their visit to El Toralín and that the advantage over the descent is not reduced any more, since right now it is one point and the fall seems to find no end. Not surprisingly, in the last 18 days Logroñés has only achieved one victory, none in the entire second round, and has nine out of 54 possible points. Of course, against Zaragoza (1-1) there was a clear improvement, especially in intensity, and that is what the Riojans are clinging to in the final stretch of the competition. Sergio Rodríguez will recover Gorka and also Sierra, who served a sanction. They will continue to leave Santamaría, Pacheco, Clemente and Errasti, with Bogusz summoned by the Polish U21 team.
