The B team returns to action this evening in the first of 3 matches in 9 days. Javi Gracia's men are not yet safe from relegation, but that goal is within reach. Today the minisubmarino takes on Huesca, a fellow lower-half side seeking to assure its place in the Segunda for next year. An ugly game awaits, methinks.
Today's 18-man squad:
Goalkeepers: Diego Mariño & Vicente Flor.
Defenders: Carlos Tomás, Dorian Dervite, Ángel Ortega, Pere & Héctor.
Midfielders: Marcos Gullón, Iago Falqué, Marquitos, Natxo Insa, Llorente, Thiago Dutra, Hernán Pérez & Castellani.
Forwards: Moisés, Nicki Bille Nielsen & Gerard Bordas.
Kiko Olivas is with the A team for tomorrow's trip to Palma de Mallorca. Captain Marcos Gullón returns, but the absences are numerous and significant. Jaume Costa is suspended for his red card against Nàstic, while Airam, Mano, Nico, and Truyols are out with injury.
A very makeshift back four will be in place at El Alcoraz. So expect some growing pains. Iago and Hernán, we need you to pick up the slack up front. A defeat seems likely, but an early goal may change things. Endavant minisubmarino!
