Second division - day 14
Recreativo Huelva came back from two goals down to beat Lleida 3-2 and move to within three points of leaders Xerez. Gastón Casas got the winner with a last minute penalty to keep the Catalans in the bottom four. Almería moved up into the promotion spots after a 2-0 win over Real Murcia on Sunday lunchtime, Ortíz getting both the goals. Paco Flores's side climb above Valladolid, who drop out of the top three after drawing 1-1 at Sporting Gijón. Capdevila put the visitors ahead early on, but a Calandria penalty after the break saved a point for the Asturians. And Ciudad Murcia are now only three points behind Almería after a 1-0 win over Lorca, thanks to a first half strike from Mané.
Castellón are off the bottom of the table again, although their 1-1 draw against Elche only took them above Poli Ejido on goal difference. The scoreline was repeated five times this weekend, including in the match between Numancia and Racing Ferrol, a result which left the Galicians still in the drop zone and their hosts just two points above them. Albacete are only a point above Ferrol though after they were beaten 3-0 by Castilla, and Málaga B were dragged back into the relegation struggle after losing 1-2 to Nàstic earlier in the day.

Leaders Xerez were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by bottom club Poli Ejido on Saturday evening. David De Coz gave Lucas Alcaraz's side the lead early in the second half, but Calado equalised just a few minutes later. Tenerife could only draw 1-1 as well against struggling Eibar, and lost out on the chance to make up ground on the leaders. The Canary Islanders fell behind to an Iñigo strike in only the third minute, but Cristian Alvarez levelled the scores after the restart. Hércules meanwhile move up to fourth after a 3-0 win over local rivals Levante, Moisés, Navarrete and Mateo getting the goals for the Alicante based side. (26.11.05)
