New disappointment for a Depor B that didn’t capitalise the early advantage and that seemed too desperate against a rival that was content with the draw. Now the team is four points behind first place Cerceda.

Tito Ramallo was recovering several of the players that were joining the first squad in past opportunities, he only lost Juan Dominguez, who played a few minutes on Saturday. The main novelty was that after three weeks, the coach was finally having a striker available for the game: Joshua Corrales

It was a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Diego Rivas at the goal, Diego Seoane performing at the right-back position, David Rochela and Castillo at the centre of the defence, while Raúl Garcia was at the left side. At midfield, the big novelty was that Momar Diagne was starting a game for the third time on the season, he played alongside captain Dani Rodriguez. Chirri returned to the right wing Juan Carlos was the playmaker, David Añon played on the left and Joshua was the central attacker.

The rival was La-Coruña based SD Ordenes, coach Ambrosio Oróns was losing central defender Dani Fernandez for injury reasons, while he was recovering midfielders Javi Alvarez, Oscar Toja and striker Dani Regos, this last two were returning after a suspension.  The main novelty was that five ex-Depor members were part of the starting eleven, three of them with a past at Fabril: keeper Francisco Javier Rios, defender Manu Casal and midfielder Carlos Padin, this last one even played two games with Depor’s first team during the season 1997/98.

The other two starters with a past at Depor were ex-Juvenil A defenders Miguel Fiuza and Roberto Baleato. Another ex-Fabril member at Ordenes is Marcos Rodríguez Moreiras, the midfielder was sited on the bench and entered for the second half. To mention that Ordenes arrived at Abegondo occupying the ninth spot and living a tough moment as it had only added one point within the previous three games.

Everybody was feeling the pressure due to the poor results suffered within the last games; therefore the best news for Deportivo B was the early goal that was scored at minute 4, which came after ex-Juvenil A Roberto Baleato fouled Seoane inside the area, the referee whistled the penalty and captain Dani scored his eight goal on the season from the penalty spot. In this way it ended Fabril’s longest period on the season without scoring a goal (155 minutes).

The goal should have brought calmness to the team of Ramallo, but a silly mistake ten minutes later just accelerated the anxiety, because Ordenes reached the draw after Alex Castro took a free-kick almost from midfield that meant the equaliser, it seemed a harmless play, but the ball was sent to the area and nobody touched it, which confused keeper Diego Rivas, who just saw the ball going into the goal.

After the goal Fabril became into a desperate team, a squad that never showed its virtues playing with the ball over the grass, and that instead was throwing long throws that were easily stopped by the rival. Chirri and David Añon had the best scoring opportunities before the break, but they missed the target, while Manu and Toja responded for the visitors.

Nothing changed for the second part and soon Ramallo sent Luis Angel to replace Juan Carlos, but it didn’t work as Fabril continued basing its game in long throws. Actually Ordenes was the side closer to the goal as Manu and Toja were close to score in attempts that missed the target. What occurred was that the quick plays of Depor B was just leaving open spaces that Ordenes never capitalised, basically because they seemed content with a point.

Later Héctor entered for Momar and it seemed that the locals were improving its game, mainly because there was more presence on the wings, especially after Diego Vela replaced Joshua, modification that moved David Añon to the centre of the attack.

But the truth is that the only clear opportunity for Fabril during the second half came until the stoppage time, it was through midfielder Héctor, who fired a long-range rocket, but visiting keeper Francisco Javier Rios cleared the danger. The match ended with a series of corner-kick for Ramallo’s boys that ended in nothing.

Deportivo B recovered several of its main players, but it showed again the poor game of recent matches. The squad barely made three straight passes and the main strategy were long throws that just made easier the job to Ordenes. The problem is that now first place Cerceda has increased its lead to four points after defeating Rapido Bouzas (1-0). But it should be remembered that they have played one more game and they still have to visit Abegondo. For the moment Depor B will visit Pontevedra B at the A Xunqueira stadium (Saturday, 16h15 CET)

Comments of Tito Ramallo: “It was a derby match. Ordenes planned the things and besides they have fast people. The ball visited both goals and any side could have scored. We need to improve some things, because the team seems to be in a hurry, even a little tired, therefore it gives the impression that we have problems moving the ball. We miss aids at midfield, which limits us to attack in a better way.”
