An early goal was enough to put back Fabril at the promotion zone; despite the casualties Depor’s lads played a serious game and even deserved a bigger win.

It was a final before a direct rival, and coach Gustavo Munúa had more casualties than ever before, because the normal starters at the centre of the defence, Quique Fornos and Steve One, were out injured, Óscar also joined the important casualties in attack: Uxio Dapena, Ismael Díaz, Luismi and Bicho. In the end the coach had to pick four lads from Juvenil A for the game: Iago Carracedo, Mujaid, Pablo Porrúa & Pedro Alves.

The lineup was a 4-2-3-1 figure with Francis Uzoho covering the goal, Blas Alonso performed at the right-back position, Raúl González and Gaizka Martínez were the centre-backs, Lucas Viña performed at the left side in defence. Edu Expósito and Carlos López were the centre midfielders, Borja Galán attacked from the right wing. Diego Caballo did it from the left, Martín Bengoa was the playmaker and Jardel was the centre forward.

CDA Navalcarnero arrived as the fourth spot in the league after winning three of the previous five games. The Madrilenians only had one more point than Fabril. Coach Julián Calero was relying in Álvaro Barbosa and Joaquín Cerdá for the goals, the latter is the top-scorer at the team (11 goals in liga).

It was fear that Fabril were going to feel the impact of the casualties, but the lads played a great game, creating opportunities and avoiding mistakes in defence before an in-form rival that had a grey performance.

The game started with Joaquín Cerdá hitting the post with a low shot from outside the area, though the play was invalidated for a previous foul (1’).  The visiting side was pushing up front and the ball possession was disputed, but the locals were going to capitalize their first opportunity.

It was a combinative play that ended with Diego Caballo releasing a cross from the left, the ball was going too high, but Borja Galán was able to release an acrobatic shot past visiting goalie Ismael Gil.

The game was highly disputed, both sides were trying to have the ball, but the scoring opportunities were scarce. The next one was for Fabril, it was a corner-kick action in which Martín Bengoa headed the ball out (22’).

Fabril were missing spark, something normal due to the casualties, but neither CDA Navalcernero were doing too much. So, the game became boring as it lacked opportunities. The second goal could have arrived in the stoppage time, again in a play on the left wing. Edu Expósito got the ball inside the area and his drilling pass was barely deflected by Jardel and Ismael Gil cleared the danger with his foot (45+1’).

The locals improved a lot in the second half and deserved to score more goals. The half started with blocked shots for Borja Galán and Edu Expósito (46’). The game was faster, the visiting side was getting desperate and Fabril started to find the cracks in attack. At minute 59, a new counterattack for Fabril gave a new opportunity to Jardel, the Portuguese arrived in time to connect the ball in a drilling cross from the left, but he failed at the moment of the contact.

Then Fabril had a triple chance. First, Edu Expósito released a volley from long-range, Isma Gil barely cleared the ball over the crossbar (64’). In the resulting corner-kick, Fabril had a double chance, first with Borja Galán heading the ball into the near post, and in the loose ball Gil made the save before Jardel.

The first chance for Navalcarnero in the half came in a throw-in, a clearance by Raúl González was picked by substitute Cifo and his strong shot went close to the crossbar (74’). Fabril didn’t find any problem to close the game despite the narrow advantage and Munúa made the changed with Queijeiro and Romay entering for Carlos López and Caballo.

Great game for Fabril solid in defence and seizing one of the many chances had in the game. The result pushes the team back into the promotion zone. The next game is the visit to CD Guijuelo (Sunday, 18h00 CET).
