New show of Iago Beceiro; the polemic attacker returned to score and provide an assist. Still, it wasn’t enough to beat the leader at Tercera División. Depor B have only won one of the last seven league meetings.

José Luis Devesa continued with his idea of relocating playmaker Marcos Remeseiro as a ‘false nine’, while striker Dani Iglesias continued at the left wing. But the main news was to see Iago Beceiro at the starting lineup for the first time on this season (his fifth appearance in the league). Álex Pérez was also back after one and a half months, while Bicho, Uxío and Teles were picked by the first team for the visit to SD Ponferradina.

The draw was a 4-2-3-1. David Gómez was the starting goalie, Toni Insua performed at the right side of the defense, Aarón Rama did it on the left, while Stefan Deák and Róber were the centre-backs, Sidibé and Ángel Fernández were the centre midfielders, Iago Beceiro attacked from the right wing, Dani Iglesias did it from the left, Marcos Remeseiro was the central attacker, while Romay  was the playmaker.

The rival was CD Boiro, the surprising leader in the league as they are living their first year at Tercera División. The team coached by Rogelio Gómez ‘Gelucho’ only lost one game in the season and played in Abegondo with two former players of the club: keeper Ian Mackay and attacker Carlos Padín. The top scorer at the team is Iván González (5), who was a starter in the game.

Deportivo B continued with its poor run and only grabbed a point at home, but it cannot be said that it was a poor presentation of the team, because this time it knew when to strike and only failed to seize some of their chances to score facing a confident leader that knew how to respond. Once again Iago Beceiro was on the spotlight, sidelined for weeks he returned in order to claim a protagonic role at the team.

And it’s that Beceiro played for the last time on October 31 (1-1 Vs. UD Barbadás), since then he wasn’t picked for the following four games and it wasn’t clear why. Now the poor results pushed him back and only needed five minutes to demonstrate that Depor cannot afford to have him at the stand. He picked the ball at the edge of the area and unleashed a powerful shot that went into the top left-corner of visiting goalie Ian Mackay.

Since that moment Fabril had the game where they wanted. They were putting a lot of pressure at midfield and were pretty dangerous in the counterattack; in this way Beceiro was close to score twice, first with a strong volley that was saved by Mackay and later with an attempt that was saved by defender  Paco Perol at the goal line.

But CD Boiro demonstrated that they aren’t leaders just for an accident and knew how to overcome the disadvantage; the claimed the ball possession and looked pretty dangerous within the last ten minutes of the first half. Frist Paco Perol had an attempt that was saved by David Gómez and the visiting team got the deserved reward during the stoppage time.

It was a fast attack on the left side of Fabril’s defense that ended with Bendaña releasing a drilling cross that midfielder Juan Ángel Vidal ‘Anxo’ sent into the back of the net. There was more excitement for the second part, starting with the fact that Devesa continued with his experiments: He insisted in playing with an offensive full-back.

In this way Cañi replaced Toni Insua at the right side, while Adrián Martinez claimed the spot of Aarón, who wasn’t totally fit to play after been dragging a foot injury. The true is that Fabril were revitalized for the second part and outplayed CD Boiro, at least within the first minutes.

Dani Iglesias was close to score with a crossed shot, but it was going to be Iago Beceiro the one that was going to unbalance the score. He alone invented a play on the right wing that ended in a precise cross that Marcos Remeseiro headed in from close range.

But as it happened in the first part, the visiting team reacted and took control of the game, and thirteen minutes before the final whistle they scored the equalizer in a new defensive distraction of Depor’s youngsters. Cardeñosa collected a cross at the left side of the area after a corner-kick; he headed the ball on target, and striker Hugo Soto just had the push the ball in from close range.

Devesa attempted a new push and in this sense he replaced Beceiro with Álex Pérez, but the side that was closer to score was CD Boiro through Iván Gonzalo and Hugo Soto; still the score didn’t change. The game ended with a fight and an exchange of kicks and elbows in which Romay and Pedro García were sent off.

Not a bad game for Depor B, but it was the same result of previous weeks as the youngsters only got a draw facing the leader in the tournament. Iago Beceiro shone again and recalled the comments regarding the reason why he isn’t playing more often.  The team has only won one of the last seven games and remains living at mid-table; on next weekend the team visits another team fighting to reach the top-places UD Somozas.
