Getafe moved up to within a point of the European spots after beating bottom club Sporting Gijón 2-0 on Saturday evening. The early chances fell to the locals, Diego Castro and Gavilán coming up against Juan Pablo and his defence, with Carmelo bringing a good save out of Moyà at the other end. Midway through the first half though Miku headed the locals in to the lead from a wide Gavilán free kick, and Valera could have increased the scoreline a couple of times before the interval. A couple of minutes after the restart Diego Castro did make it two though with a first time volley from Gavilán's cross, the midfielder refusing to celebrate the goal in defence to his old supporters, who by now were calling for the resignation of coach Javier Clemente. The visitors didn't give up however, and Barral in particular could have put them back in the game when he ran on to shoot against the outside of the post, and later on when he volleyed wide from Rivera's cross. Another defeat for the Asturians though, and they have only picked up six points since Manolo Preciado was fired nine games ago.
