XISCO AND RUBEN RIVERA COULD APPEAR AGAINST REAL SOCIEDAD

19 Oct 2005
The injury that Sebasti??n Taborda suffered over the weekend is complicating things at Deportivo. Caparr??s is searching for alternatives to fill Taborda’s shoes and the best choice comes from Fabril. Xisco and R??ben Rivera are the most likely options to be called up in the next match against Real Sociedad.

After the debut of Iv??n Carril, Senel and Iago Iglesias in La Liga, Caparr??s will probably try to cover the vacancy upfront with some Fabril youngsters. Trist??n and R??ben Castro are the only available options for the moment, and anyway the Sevillan striker has some muscular problems that as of now shouldn't affect his presence at Anoeta.

Xisco and Rub?©n Rivera are the first options that Caparr??s has. Xisco played seven Liga games last season, but a hip injury has prevented his progress since the pre-season. He hasn't debuted yet with Deportivo B, but he will this weekend against Berganti?±os if Caparr??s doesn't call him up for the San Sebasti??n trip.

Rub?©n Rivera has scored seven goals in eight Fabril games so far, which means he's the best option for the Sevillan coach since he's in better shape than Xisco. Iv??n Carril is another alternative for Caparr??s if he finally decides to return R??ben Castro to the striker position. It must be remembered that the squad will play three games next week and Caparr??s has already announced rotations in the squad.

Meanwhile, Senel continues with his recuperation.  He began to work on the pitch last week, but he isn't ready to play yet since he is still in the adapting. The Baiona-born promise became injured in the match against Betis, where he only lasted eight minutes on the pitch during the match.
