Saturday's defeat at El Molinón left further collateral damage for Ponferradina, who lost two midfielders in a blow in this week's game against Deportivo de La CoruñThe. Oscar Sielva, who saw the fifth yellow, and Manzanara, who was sent off for double reprimand, will have to complete a penalty shootout, forcing Bolo to redo his field center to measure up with the El Toralín rider.
Precisely, the blue and white coach chose in Gijón to play with three midfielders, Sielva, Larrea and Manzanara, a variant that, in his opinion "worked better in the second half to counteract Sporting's numerical superiority from within". Before Depor, he will not be able to repeat the experiment and will need to improvise a new engine room, which will almost certainly be Larrea and Nacho Gil.
The loss of Oscar Sielva is new to the Berciano team as he has so far played every minute of Ponferradina at LaLiga SmartBank, keeping up the gals he won last season and proving himself to be one of the hardest working midfielders of the competition. , both when catching the ball and playing the team game.
His usual center partner, Pablo Larrea, spoke after the match against Sporting to make sure the team already has a mind "the next day against Deportivo, which is a very important game for us and our fans."
Madrid summed up the prevailing sentiment in Bercian's locker room by stating that "I think we already deserve the three points after those games where the team is working well and generating opportunities but the results are not enough." . Larrea lamented that “football is not being fair now and is taking us away, but the time will come when it will begin to give us. In the meantime, we have to keep working as before, fix the errors and stop. "
The blue and white coach & # 39; passes & # 39; the bad sequence of results
Deportiva added in El Molinón the fifth day without a win, the worst blue-and-white sequence this season, although the results of the teams below follow and the Berianos continue with a six-point mattress in the relegation zone. After the game in Gijón, Bolo reiterated that he does not understand the numbers: “I do not like the streaks, neither positive nor negative. We're a little sad because the team does a lot of good things to win and they can't, but what we need to do is keep working. Regardless of results, we have to continue with the same ambition, the same courage and the same humility ”.
The game against Deportivo on Saturday will be a new opportunity for Ponferradina to end this series of bad results. and rediscover victory in what will be the last game of the people of Murcia before their fans this year.
