REVIEW: CERCEDA 0 – FABRIL 0 (TERCERA)

27 Jan 2015
Important point for Deportivo B before a direct rival for the promotion seats. Equal game in the first part, but in favour of Cerceda during the second half. Róber, Sam Piette and Cardoso returned.

BEFORE THE GAME
Coach Manu Mosquera was facing a new tough exam. After the heavy casualties of the previous week now only four players were out injured: Cańi, Taboada, Juan López and new signing Francis Massampu. Róber Suárez and Canadian Sam Piette were returning from a suspension, while top-scorer Miguel Cardoso was available after been out injured for two weeks.

The lineup was a 4-2-3-1. David Gómez was the goalkeeper, Adrián Martínez was playing at the right-back position, Jorge Fernández performed on the left, the centre-backs were Iago López and Hugo Díaz. Sam Piette and Marcos Remeseiro were the centre midfielders, Ángel Fernández was performing on the right wing, Korean Kim Woo-Hong was the left winger, Pancho Cotos was the playmaker and Dani Iglesias was the centre forward.

The rival was CCD Cerceda, the team coached by José Luis Lemos is the runner-up in the league and was undefeated after eleven games at the Roxo field clinching six clean sheets in the period. This experienced squad is full of experience and has seven former Fabril members, four of them were starters in the game: goalkeeper Marcos Valín, centre-back Marcos Caridad plus attackers Herbert Rey & Jorge Cano.

THE MATCH
Not a bad result due to the circumstances. Depor B would have claimed the second position in case of clinching the victory, but it was a hard challenge due to the numbers of Cerceda at O Roxo and for what happened in the second act. The game had two very different parts, in the first things were equal and Depor’s lads had more opportunities, and in the second the locals harassed Fabril and deserved to win the game.

Almost nothing important occurred within the first 45 minutes. Both teams were extremely careful and the ball spent the major part of the time at midfield in a “war” between Sam Piette and Agulló, so the goalkeepers barely touched the ball.

Cerceda had two approximations that couldn’t be translated into shots on target due to the lack of definition by their attackers. At minute 4, Peloto couldn’t resolve the play before David Gómez, he assisted Uxío Dapena but the defense cleared the danger. Their second change came until minute 38 and this time it was Herbert who couldn’t resolve the play before Depor’s goalie.

About Fabril, Cardoso was on the bench, and with Remeseiro once again delayed as he was performing as a centre midfielder, the responsibility to create danger was on the boots of Kim Woo-Hong, but this time the Korean didn’t shine with his velocity. There were no shots on target in the first part. Still, the visiting team was the one with more shots (5) and the most dangerous was a short-distance attempt of Dani Iglesias that went close to the far post (32’).

The second half was a completely different story. The local coach made a substitution and switched the position of at least three players, the result was a more aggressive Cerceda that had in Jorge Cano the main threat to add the three points.

Ex-Fabril Canohad the best chance in the game after heading a high cross coming from the right, the ball hit the crossbar when David Gómez was already beaten and later Adrián cleared the danger (55’). Manu Mosquera didn’t like what he saw and replaced Pancho Cotos with Álvaro Queijeiro in an attempt to regain midfield territory, he also refreshed the attacking like as Álex Pérez claimed the spot of Dani Iglesias.

Cerceda were still dominating, to emphasize the work done by Sam Piette and the whole defense, flawless throughout the game covering the back zone, but the main piece in the puzzle was David Gómez thanks to his saves in the last stretch of the meeting.

Cardoso reappeared for the final ten minutes replacing Ángel, but Depor B didn’t create any danger in the second part; actually the locals had three opportunities in this stretch of the meeting. The first was a polemic play in which substitute Martín González was pushed inside the area by Iago (85’), then two chances for Cano, in the first he wasn’t able to  surpass David Gómez in a one-on-one action (88’) and the other was a big save by Depor’s goalie clearing his crossing header from close range and after a lateral free-kick (90+1’).

AFTER THE GAME
Deportivo B couldn’t add three important points that would have meant to reach the second place, but the point is a good result considering that Cerceda was the better team in the whole second part. If this was a tough meeting facing the runners-up the next game is more demanding as the leaders, Pontevedra CF, are visiting Abegondo (Saturday 18h30 CET).

Comments by Manu Mosquera: ”I sincerely believe that this was a good result, a point of prestige. I congratulated my players as we have won the game, because I believe that Cerceda is a huge team in all senses. “
