The Ponferradina clings to the Toralín to look up

The Berciano team receives Sporting in a new opportunity to assault the promotion playoff. The top scorer Djuka, falls in the Asturian team.


After drawing last week in Vallecas, Ponferradina faces its second consecutive opportunity this afternoon to cut points with the playoff zone and, incidentally, take another step to ensure permanence. The Berciano team receives the fifth classified, a Sporting that arrives with the loss of Second's top scorer, Djuka, but still willing to extend its five-game streak without losing and prevent Deportiva from fully getting into the fight for promotion (follow the game live on .

Jon Pérez Bolo maintains the same call-up of the last weeks and will continue without being able to count on the injured Manu Hernando, Ríos Reina, Kaxe and Iván Rodríguez. Nor are substantial changes in an eleven that has worked at home against Mirandés and away against Rayo Vallecano. The main doubts can arise where always, from midfield forward, where Bolo has enough alternatives to introduce changes, especially on the left wing. Thus, Gaspar or Doncel could return to that position, although it is most likely that Pablo Valcarce will start from there, with Aguza on the inside and Curro on the right. Above, Yuri will continue to be the offensive benchmark for the Blue and Whites.

For its part, Sporting appears in El Toralín without the league's top scorer, Uros Djurdjevic, sanctioned for accumulating cautions, and without its starting right wing since the beginning of the year. The winger Guille Rosas and the winger Nikola Cumic will not be against Ponferradina either, in his case due to injury, which forces changes in David Gallego's lineup. Campuzano is the first option to replace Djuka. The question is whether the Gijon team will be able to replace the Serbian's scoring ability this season. Djudrjevic (17 goals) has scored no less than 60 percent of the rojiblanco team's goals. The two players with the most goals are Aitor and Gaspar, who will occupy the wings, both with two goals each.

After the draw against Espanyol, Sporting arrived in Ponferrada with the aim of taking the three points to open more space with the pursuers of the playoff places. Gallego's team has five games without losing, with three wins and two draws, in which they have only conceded one goal. Defensive strength continues to be their main weapon to score points each day.

A fort. Ponferradina has four months without losing at home and wants to maintain its strength in El Toralín to fight for the promotion playoff.Delusion. Bolo has once again put the accent on the word illusion to face the visit of Sporting and continue to aspire to everything this season.No scorer. It is unknown how Sporting will respond in attack without Djurdjevic, the league's top scorer and who has scored more than 60% of the team's goals.Security behind. The rojiblanca defensive security is key this season, with Mariño as the last great bulwark to avoid conceding goals.AS TO FOLLOW PONFERRADINA: Yuri

The blue and white captain returned to 'wet' in Vallecas, showing that it is enough for him to appear once for the defenses to shake.AS TO FOLLOW SPORTING: Campuzano

He has the difficult ballot of assuming the role of Djuka with everything that the Serbian contributes, in addition to his goals.


Ponferradina and Sporting maintain a balanced balance in their Second Division matches at El Toralín, with two victories for each team and one draw in their five matches. Last year Deportiva won by the minimum thanks to a goal from Kaxe.
