Preview: Nàstic vs. Villarreal B

Fly away from the starting XI, Gerard Bordas.

Another week, another relegation dogfight. Sound familiar? Get used to it. This time it's the 'B' boys away to the colista. Let's hope for a different result.

Villarreal B visits Gimnàstic de Tarragona (Catalan accent, like in French) on Saturday afternoon at the Nou Estadi. Clever name. Tarragona is a picturesque city on the beach, but its club is in trouble.

Eight points from safety, fifteen rounds to go. Time to start puntuando. If not, the depths of the semiprofessional Segunda B await. Sad for one of the oldest clubs in Spain, founded in 1886.

Julio Velázquez will take 18 players up the coast, subject to change:

Keepers: Diego Mariño, Jorge.
Defenders: Truyols, Florian Lejeune, Kiko Olivas, Toño, Pere Martínez.
Midfielders: Llorente, Toribio, Ramos, Moisés Gómez, Barrientos, Iriome, Manu Trigueros, Pedro Vázquez.
Strikers: Juanto, Porcar, Gerard Bordas.

Defender Íñiguez remains injured, and holding midfielder Toribio is a game-time decision. On the flip side, midfielders Barrientos and Iriome and right back Pere return to the squad.

Jaume Costa and Joselu Moreno are not in Friday's team list, but let's see what tomorrow brings. Keep your eyes on the game thread. As Toño said, a win on Saturday is vital.
