Fabril cut its winning streak with a draw at home before a rival in relegation. The team played a bad first part, it reacted in the second, but it was unable to score. Depor’s lads remain at the top of the group.

With Cristobal Parralo taking charge of the first team, Depor’s second team was taken by Rubén Coméndez and Manuel Pablo. Quique Fornos, Caballo, One, Bicho and Luis Fernández were still out for injury reasons, midfielder Edu Expósito was also out as he was picked by the first team for visit to UD Las Palmas. Keeper Francis Uzoho and attacker Borja Galán were back, but only the first was a starter in the game.

The lineup was a 4-2-3-1 with Francis covering the goal, Blas Alonso performed at the right-back position, Gaizka Martínez and Raúl González were the centre-backs, Lucas Viña performed at the left. Martín Bengoa and Álvaro Queijeiro were the centre midfielders, Óscar García attacked from the right wing. Jorge Romay was the playmaker, Ismael Díaz performed on the left flank and Uxio Dapena was the centre forward.

The rival was CD Guijuelo, team that arrived in relegation after only winning one of the previous five games and after only scoring four goals (worst mark in group I). Coach Jordi Fabregat was relying in Julián Luque as the reference up front.

Fabril were jammed in the first part, there was only one shot on target in this frame. For the second half it went out in order to win and had countless opportunities to extend the winning streak, but the lads failed to score.

The locals had the initiative since the start, they surrounded the visiting area, though only completed a couple of crosses without any problem for visiting goalie Enrique Royo ‘Kike’. The first attempt for Fabril came at minute 15, it was a lateral free-kick in which the cross of Óscar was headed out by Raúl Gonzalez.

CD Guijuelo improved with the passing of the minutes, though they missed depth. Their first opportunity was a long-range shot of Carmona that went wide (17’). At this point the game was already boring, Fabril seemed too thick before a rival that wasn’t suffering and that neither attacked.

Óscar García appeared until minute 32, it was a solo-play in which he ran from his own area and the action ended in a corner-kick. Romay and Queijeiro were also absent and it explains why the locals were plane in attack.

Ismael Díaz was also missing in action, at minute 36 the Panamanian made a good solo-play on the left, but the ball was cleared by a defender. The clear reflection of the first half was the counterattack lead by Queijeiro at minute 42, he had plenty of field and three options to pass the ball, but he misses aim and ended assisting a rival. The only shot on target in the half came one minute later, it was a short-range attempt from Uxío that Kike cleared to corner-kick.

The second half was totally different; at minute 47, a defender prevented Uxío from picking a drilling pass from Ismael Díaz. Two minutes later the same striker seized an error to enter the area and fire a low shot that was blocked by Kike.

At minute 49, Ismael Díaz got the ball at the left corner of the area, and his strong shot went close to the far post. At minute 54, a high cross from Blas was headed by Romay at the box and the ball went into the path of Uxío, who was alone before the keeper, but he was offside.

But Guijuelo also improved. At minute 58 a counterattack for the visiting side ended with a strong shot from Luque and Francis made a great save sending the ball over the crossbar. The game was turning to be entertaining, Fabril continued to have the ball, while the visiting side was damaging with their counterattacks.

At minute 64, a counterattack for CD Guiuelo ended with Carmona sending the ball out from the edge of the area. One minute later Romay headed out a free-kick of Óscar, before Carlos López had replaced Martín Bengoa. In the next play a new counterattack for the visiting side ended with Pino missing the target before Francis.

The second change at Fabril was the entry of Jardel for Uxío. The Portuguese refreshed the attack and was close to score twice. At minute 75, he was close to connect a cross from Óscar, five minutes later he was missing the target from the edge of the area. Borja Galán was the last substitution replacing Ismael Díaz, seconds after been on the pitch the striker fired a low shot blocked by Kike (80’).

At minute 83, Fuster missed the target from the edge of the area. One minute later Jardel arrived late to a cross from Óscar. The winger was the best player for Fabril, always giving problems on both sides and precisely Óscar was going to have the last and best chance in the game, it came at minute 86 after collecting a bad pass from a defender, he was left alone before Kike, but he sent the ball over the crossbar.

The good second half of Fabril wasn’t enough to clinch the three points. The winning streak of Depor’s lads ends in seven, the biggest ever of the team competing at Segunda B. Still, Fabril remain at the top of Segunda B. There’s a match in midweek as Fabril visits Pontevedra CF (Pasarón, Wednesday, 17h00 CET)

Comment by Rubén Coméndez: “It was a first half in which we missed to pass the ball, maybe we were too hurried with Pinchi and Ismael Diaz trying to enter by the centre. Romay couldn’t appear and we weren’t able to create chances to score.  In the second half we corrected things, we tried to create chances on the wings. I believe we did the right things and only missed to close the plays. It would have been a deserved reward. Sometimes the aim is what it is.”
