FABRIL: TITO RAMALLO TARGETS THE PROMOTION

12 Feb 2008
Deportivo B has fulfilled its first objective of the season: the permanence in Segunda B. Now coach Tito Ramallo is targeting the next step: the promotion series to Segunda Divisi??n. And it's that his squad has achieved 45 points in just twenty four matchday.

Coach Tito Ramallo started the Segunda B season appointing that his team was needing to clinch 45 points in order to secure the permanence. More specifically, he was targeting an average of five points per every month of competition (9). But his squad has surpassed the expectations. Because after matchday 14, Fabril already had 31 points and it was the leader of the division.

At that time, Ramallo was asking for patience "When the first objective could be fulfilled, we will move to the next one" and that situation occurred on the past Sunday after Deportivo B defeated P??jara Playas (3-1). Now Fabril accumulates 45 points and the speech of Ramallo is different "We still have some months ahead of us. Now we have fourteen games remaining in the calendar ... I think that with six more victories and with one more draw, we could be securing the promotion series." This were his words after his team returned to La Coru?±a.

There were some concerns about the possibilities of Fabril in Segunda B, the squad was returning to the category after a decade in Tercera, but Ramallo is proud of the demonstration of his boys "It was heard and it was said that we wouldn't be at the top and that a B squad would feel the change. They weren't so wrong about it, but we have demonstrated that until this moment, we are really competitive and that several players can be really good in any category. We still producing players and they haven't missed anything when they were promoted to the first squad."

However, Ramallo warns that not everything is done and that all the teams in the group still have to fight hard in the road to the promotion "This leagues have their ups and downs. Universidad (Las Palmas), for example, they have been at the top for a while but they have six weeks without a win. The most regular squad and the one capable of lifting the head after the bad results will be the one with the biggest reward."
