Huercal-Overa CF 1 Atletico Pulpileno 1


The Almeriense Derby ended with a goal a piece at a buoyant El Hornillo

The visitors took the lead through a neat free kick on 20 minutes from Perico beating Javi Garcia in the Huercal Overa goal at his left hand post to cries of jubilation from the travelling fans.

The lead on lasted 11 minutes when Alvaro slotted home to level the game after a bit of a scramble in the Pulpi area, Los Rojos didn’t mind it wasn’t a spectacular effort asa it brought them back in to the game in which they dominated much of the possession but without too many real breakthroughs.

This was partly down to Emmanulle Mendy in the heart of the Pulpi defence, the ex Huercal Overa man was on fine form to deny Tyler Knowles from moving one on one with the keeper on numerous occasions. Mendy, the Guinea Bissua international will miss most of January and February due to the African Nations Cup in Gabon, will be a huge miss for Pulpi as they try to stave of relegation.

The second half of the fixture didn’t supply any more goals but none the less had its excitement with Antonio Jesus taking and early bath after 71 minutes for his second yellow card and substitute Glodie heading over the bar in the final minutes when it could have been easier to find the back of the net.

The draw was probably the fair result with neither die doing enough to win it, Huercal Overa travel to FC Pinatar next week while Pulpi welcome CD Minera in another important relegation matchup.
