Second Division - Day 18

Two second division games exceptionally on Friday evening, Granada moving up to second spot pending the rest of the weekend fixtures after a 3-2 win over regional neighbours Almería. Goals either side of half time by Víctor Diaz and Machís put the locals two up, but Alcaraz and Morcillo appeared to have saved a draw before Pedro struck the winner in injury time. Sporting Gijón drop further away from the play-off spots however after they lost 2-1 at Barcelona B, Aleñá and José Arnáiz giving the locals the lead at the break, and Alex Pérez heading one back soon after the restart.

Huesca stay top of the table despite being held to a 1-1 draw at Alcorcón on Saturday, Both goals came early on, Alvaro Peña putting the locals in front before Avila equalised. The Aragón based team are now only a point ahead of Cádiz though after the Andalusians won 0-2 at Zaragoza (who had Verdasca and Cristian Alvarez sent off), Alvaro and Romera getting the goals to make it six victories in a row for the Andalusians. Numancia are still a point behind Cádiz after they beat Lorca 1-0 thanks to a strike by Guillermo, and Valladolid lost ground on the teams above them after they lost 2-1 at Albacete, a Gaffoor own goal coming too late to overturn a brace from Zozulya.
