Second division, week 35 (postponed game)

Algeciras continue to avoid the inevitable drop, and they still have a mathematical chance of survival after beating Xerez 2-1 in a match postponed from day 35. The visitors dominated from the start against their neighbours, and took the lead in only the fourth minute when Canito picked up a cross from Francis to beat Iñaki. José Marí got his third goal in two games though after a defensive mistake to level the scores before the break, and he and Armentano both forced good saves out of Unanua after the restart before Chico deflected Tevenet's shot past the keeper for what was to be the winning goal. Xerez had a chance to level the scores right at the end when Calle was brought down by Chico in the penalty area, but Iñaki saved the striker's spot kick. (27.05.04)
