Second division, day 32
Albacete moved to the top of the table and extended their unbeaten run to 15 games after a 0-2 win over Córdoba. Jandro scored both goals in a three minute period in the second half. Murcia drop to second after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Sporting Gijon, but still stay three points clear of Zaragoza, who beat Eibar 2-0 with strikes from Galletti and Yordi.
Levante kept up the pressure on the top three though after a 4-0 victory over Leganés, and they are still only a point behind the promotion spots. Leganés drop into the bottom four as a result. Levante's win keeps them five points ahead of Xerez, who themselves have gone nine games without a loss after an impressive 1-3 win at Tenerife. The Canary Islanders are now virtually out of the promotion race, as are their neighbours Las Palmas, who were beaten 1-0 by struggling Almería on Saturday.
Talking of good runs, Compostela's fifteen points from their last six games have taken them up to ninth in the table. They beat Numancia 1-0 this weekend to move above Poli Ejido, who themselves are heading the other way after their fourth defeat in a row, this time 2-0 at Salamanca. Getafe are a point behind the Andalucians after they won 2-1 against Terrassa.
The bottom two sides Oviedo and Racing Ferrol both won their respective games to keep alive their hopes of survival. Oviedo's 2-1 win over relegation rivals Badajoz was only their second of the season in their Nuevo Tartiere stadium, and takes them to within a point of the Extremadurian side . Ferrol beat Elche 1-0 to move above Badajoz on goal difference, although both are still four points away from the team above them, Leganés. (20.04.03)
