Aranzubia, Morel and Salomão will miss Wednesday’s match at the Riazor, while Borja is returning from suspension. The rival for the match, UD Las Palmas, is practically playing for nothing as it only needs one point to secure the salvation.

The novelty for the match against UD Las Palmas (Wednesday, Riazor, 20h00 CET) is the return of centre midfielder Borja Fernandez, who was suspended for the past clash against CD Numancia. But coach Oltra won’t recover in midweek any of the injured players.

Goalkeeper Daniel Aranzubia still off due to an Achilles injury; the good news is that doctors expect that he can join the trainings today. He won’t be cleared to play against Las Palmas, though it´s expected that he could be available for Sunday’s trip to CD Xérez.

Left-back defender Claudio Morel (adductor) and left winger Diogo Salomão (groin) still sidelined from the normal trainings, so they won’t play against Las Palmas. In their cases it isn’t know yet if they could be available for the weekend.

At UD Las Palmas, the team is virtually saved as it only needs one point to certify the permanence; the Canarians are passing through one of their lowest points on the season after suffering three defeats within the last four meetings in liga. To make things worse coach Juan Manuel Rodríguez is missing some key players for the match.

Starting with Jonathan Viera, the playmaker is the best assistor at Segunda (12) and one of the two best scorers at the team (9), but last week he was sold to Valencia CF for €2.5 million, and as part of the deal there’s a clause that prevents the player of performing in the last five matches in the league, this in order to avoid injuries.

Besides, left-back defender Ruymán Hernández is out suspended after picking his fifth yellow card on the season during the clash with FC Cartagena.  Besides, ex-Depor winger Momo and defender David García had to be replaced during that meeting due to injury reasons and will probably miss the clash at the Riazor.
