Ponferradina and Fuenlabrada seek a victory to forget

They come from losing on the last day and want to make up in El Toralín. Manu Hernando and Nteka, news in the calls of the two teams.


Ponferradina and Fuenlabrada meet this afternoon at El Toralín looking for three points that will allow them to lick the wounds of the last day and resume the race for their respective goals (follow the game live on AS.com). The Berciano team does not want to lose track with the playoff positions and the Madrid people want to extend distances with the descent so as not to get into trouble in the last days.

In the local team, the main novelty is the possibility that Manu Hernando will return to the squad three months after being injured in Almería. The center-back has trained normally during the week, although it seems hasty for him to return to eleven. Yes, Pascanu will be in the line-up, forming with Amo in the center of the rear, with Paris Adot and Moi Delgado as full-backs, while the rest of the eleven is unknown, starting with the drawing that the coach will choose from the start.

Bolo admitted that his intention is to match the physical strength of his rival, so he could choose to play with three players on the inside (Erik Morán, Larrea and Aguza) and put a strong man like Kaxe on top, leaving the bands to Curro and Pablo Morán.

For its part, Fuenlabrada arrives hurt in its pride by the undeserved defeat it suffered against Zaragoza. However, it is well known that living in the past does not usually bring a good present neither in life, nor in football, perhaps its highest expression. For this reason, Oltra's pupils want to use that hurt feeling as an incentive to obtain three gold points in a save that is as close (eight points) as far according to the anxiety to achieve it.

For this duel, the Azulón team recovers one of its greatest threats, the 'all-field player' Randy Nteka, who has already completed his penalty cycle. It does not improve, yes, the part of casualties that continues with the same members as the previous day (Sekou Gassama, Pinchi, Iribas, Feuillassier and Aguado). Thinking about it coldly, this day is the first after several months in which Torres's team, instead of increasing the list of absences, decreases. "Who does not console himself is because he does not want to", they will think of the Kiriko fief.

However, the eleven chosen by Oltra will not be far from being the ones lined up in the duel against Zaragoza, except for the inclusion of Randy Nteka in the midfielder. This will lead to the return of Jano, the achiever par excellence, to the bench and the return of Cristóbal to the Azulonas engine room. The bands will be in charge of Espinosa and Ibán Salvador, two 'extremes' with more than 'ten'. Finally, the defense will be made up of four defenders who are synonymous with reliability; Sotillos, Pulido, Juanma and Glauder; and the lead for the ever-working Borja Garcés.


Physical. Bolo announced his intention to match his opponent's physical display, paying special attention to strategy and second plays.

Streak. La Deportiva has not lost at its stadium since last November and relies on El Toralín to score the three points.

Keep calm. The Fuenlabrada must not go crazy in its hunt for permanence. The game accompanies and the results will come again.

Good memories. El Toralín was the stadium where Fuenlabrada achieved salvation last season with a resounding victory by 0-3.

Aces to follow

Pascanu. The Romanian central defender will return to the starting eleven after his participation in the U21 Euro Cup in a match where his strength from above can be decisive.
