The B team hosts yet another Friday night encounter at the Ciudad Deportiva. At least it does not conflict with the senior side of Villarreal. This week's visitors are Girona FC, now comfortably ensconced in the Segunda.
Airam thought he would get to feature with current pichichi Joselu (6 goals in 7 matches), but Juan Carlos Garrido had other ideas. Injuries (Nilmar, Ruben, even Rossi) and travel delays (Pérez) also played their part. But no worries, according to the B team boss.
Manager José Molina does get some positive squad news:
Keepers: Diego Mariño, Jorge.
Defenders: Pere Martínez, Dorian Dervite, Florian Lejeune, Toño, Kiko Olivas, Jaume Costa.
Midfielders: Marcos Gullón, Toribio, Fofo, Chiki Guerrero, Llorente, Gonzalo Castellani, Pedro Vázquez.
Strikers: Kike López, Lucas Porcar, Airam Cabrera.
Porcar is back from injury, while Pere returns from a one-match suspension. Look for a big game from Castellani. Joselu (his first call-up!) and Truyols (long-term injury) are the lone absences.
The match begins at 3 pm Eastern Time on GolT in Spain. Endavant minisubmarino!
