Second division, day 30
Recreativo moved back to the top of the table after a 3-0 win over Racing Ferrol. All three goals came in a six minute period in the second half, Casas, Uche and Rosu scoring soon after Bourdeau was sent off for the visitors. Levante failed to return to the promotion spots after they could only draw 0-0 at Castilla earlier in the day, although they were happy to settle for a point after keeper Cavallero was sent off in the first minute. A 0-0 draw as well between Xerez and Sporting Gijón, leaving both further away from the top spots. The locals have not won now in ten games.
Numancia are going from strength to strength though, and they made it six homes win in a row after beating Valladolid 3-2. Second half strikes from Llorente and Correa cancelled out earlier goals from Montenegro and Rubén, but Montenegro won it with a late penalty. Further down the table, Poli Ejido beat Málaga B 0-1 to move away from the danger zone. Málaga B are still next to bottom, and with their first team looking ever more likely to be relegated as well, their hopes of staying up appear slim. Eibar are also in trouble after losing 2-0 to fellow strugglers Castellón, and they stay firmly anchored to the bottom of the table. (26.03.06)
Nàstic are the overnight leaders of the second division after beating Elche 1-0 on Saturday evening. The only goal of the game came late on when Pere Martí headed Pinilla's corner back in to his own net, taking the Catalans above Recreativo pending their game on Sunday. Almería moved up to third in the table after a 1-0 win over Lorca, who themselves drop out of the promotion spots as a result. Ortíz got the winner for Paco Flores's side in the twentieth minute of the game.
Ciudad Murcia kept their hopes of promotion alive after coming from behind to beat Lleida 3-1, and they move up the table to seventh. Luque, Gibanel and Kome got the goals after Oscar Rubio had given the visitors the lead. Albacete and Real Murcia cancelled each other out though in a 0-0 draw, and Hércules moved away from the danger zone above Tenerife after a 1-0 victory over the Canary Islanders, Moisés getting the only goal from the penalty spot.
