|Second Division A - Day 27|
Murcia made sure of holding on to top spot with a 0-1 win at a rainy Terrassa on Saturday evening. David Vidal's side took the three points with a second half goal from Ismael after keeper Maestro failed to cut out Juanma's cross. The home side felt hard done by when a late goal from Babangida was ruled out for a borderline offside and then a foul inside the area was given outside, but in the end they fell to their third defeat in a row and will probably be out of the top half of the table by the end of the weekend.
Leganés surprised Las Palmas, beating them 1-4 in their Insular stadium. Miguel Angel gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot after Bernaus fouled Fede Marín, and although Orlando levelled the scores, Marín restored the lead soon afterwards. Villa headed a third from Miguel Angel's free kick on the stroke of half time, and substitute Sivori added a fourth after the break after Darmon put him through. The home fans left the ground in droves well before the end, and called for the head of manager Uribe.
A headed goal ten minutes from the end by Bruno Marioni gave Tenerife a 1-1 draw at struggling Eibar in their Sunday lunchtime game. The Basques had taken the lead late in the first half against the run of play through Jorge Sánchez after good work by Garitano and Leniz, and with keeper Riesgo in great form had sat back to defend their lead. Alex had a chance to make it two after Lediakhov set him up, but he wasted the opportunity and a minute later Marioni equalised to keep his side in fifth place pending the evening games.
Getafe failed to make it four home wins in a row, and were held to a 1-1 draw in their Sunday morning kick off game against bottom club Oviedo. The Madrid based side went in front with a quarter of an hour gone when Nano headed a corner past Jonathan, but despite several chances later on were unable to add to their lead. Lozano took advantage of a long ball to make it all square twelve minutes from the end, keeping alive their hopes of salvation.
