Second division, day 6
Real Murcia moved to the top of the table after a 2-1 win over Racing Ferrol. Juan Carlos equalised Acciari's early strike, but Pedro León struck the winner from a free kick ten minutes from the end. Murcia are ahead of Xerez on goal difference after the Andalusian side beat Hércules 1-0 thanks to a second half goal from Camuñas. Ciudad Murcia held on to fourth spot after drawing 1-1 at Numancia, although they will rue the fact that Rubén got the equaliser for the locals in the last minute. And Almería closed up on the leaders with a convincing 3-0 win over Sporting Gijón, who are running out of steam after their good start to the season.
Recreativo also join the group on ten points, just two outside of the promotion spots, although they had to come from behind to beat a battling Lorca 2-1. And Elche too came back from a goal down to win 3-2 against Lleida, Poland's Frankowski getting two of their goals. Albacete moved out of the relegation zone after a late goal from Mario Bermejo gave them a belaboured 1-0 victory over Poli Ejido, taking them above Málaga B and Eibar who play on Monday night.

Málaga B and Eibar drew 1-1, a result which leaves both down in the lower reaches of the table. (03.10.05)
The top two both lost thanks to last minute strikes in their respective matches on Saturday evening. An injury time goal by substitute Marcos Estruch gave Castellón their first win against Tenerife, and Nàstic's Diego Torres handed Levante their first defeat of the season, also making it 1-0 in time added on. Elsewhere Valladolid spoilt Real Madrid's inauguration of their new Ciudad Deportiva stadium, beating Castilla 2-3 with goals from three ex Madrid players Sousa, Tote and Víctor. (01.10.05)
