Fabril achieved a scoreless draw in Madrid against Cobe?a. It was the first leg-match in the promotion series to Segunda B. Now Depor's youngsters need a win in Abegondo in order to conquer the big objective of the season: a place in Segunda B.

The eliminatory against Cobe?a seems to be following a positive road for Deportivo B. The 0-0 game is giving a little but important advantage for the second leg-match that will take place next Saturday in Abegondo (18h00). Fabril had to play with 10 men during the second half, Iv??n Carril was sent off because of a hard tackle made by the Galician winger at minute 53.

Fabril's coach tried to protect the result replacing Iago with the defender David Rey. The Galician squad suffered the pressure of Cobe?a during the last minutes, but at the end the match ended scoreless. The lineup of Deportivo B for this match was:  Mackay - Borja Facal (Senel 88'), Antonio, Chapi, Dani Cancela - ?lex, Pita - Ram??n, Iago (David Rey 73'), Iv??n Carril - Xisco (Rub?n Rivera 62').

Once again it has been speculated that the striker Rodolfo Bodipo (28) is near to Deportivo. Newspaper La Opini??n A Coru?a reported the words of Rafael Carpacho (Depor's spokesman) about the negotiation: "There isn't an agreement yet, but the negotiations are going through in a positive way. It's just a  matter of time and maybe we could close the deal at the beginning of this week."

It was previously reported that Alav?s' president, Dmytri Piterman, denied any contact with the Galician club, but Carpacho is telling a different story. Another negotiation that could be fulfilled soon is the one of Jordi L??pez (25). The Valencian midfielder wants to join Caparr??s' squad, but for the moment his club, Sevilla and Depor are still negotiating about the amount of the transfer and the number of payments that will compose the operation.
