San Isidro: 1-0 Cristian (Penalty) 36 min

4th November 2012


When will this bad run end? Since the opening day away win Lanzarote have failed to secure three points in a match in nine games and are now third from bottom two points adrift of safety.

Prior to the match the Rojillos were sitting one place above their Tenerife rivals and it was the home side that began the match with more desire. In the 9th minute midfielder Simón struck inside the area but his goal bound effort was cleared with a last ditch block.

Lanzarote steadied themselves and began to threaten with good chances for strike duo Miguel Yunes and Rosmen going amiss.

Nine minutes before the break and the home side were awarded a spot kick when Alex Yunes brought down winger Cristian on the edge of the box. The same player shook off the knock and stepped up to convert the penalty giving his side a 1-0 advantage to take into the half time break.

As ever, Lanzarote picked up their performance in the second half but conceding first is an all to usual occurrence with the Rojillos these days. In the 64th minute Rosmen spurned a great chance failing to hit the target and if that wasn’t bad enough four minutes later a good header from Rosmen was handled by the defender giving the Rojillos a penalty and also reducing the home side down to ten men. It was Rosmen´s responsibility to put his side back on level terms but almost inevitably his strike was saved by the Tenerife keeper.

The home side quite rightly shut the door and packed the midfield to protect their 1-0 lead. Lanzarote dominated the possession but just could not break through whilst the hosts squandered a great chance on the counter attack in the 87th minute. With the Rojillos pressing forward desperately in search of an equalizer the ball was hoofed forward and midfielder Aday found himself alone with just the Lanzarote keeper Marcos Machín to beat but fired his effort over the bar.

Lanzarote couldn’t find any way through as San Isidro leapfrogged Lanzarote in the league table leaving the Rojillos in the drop zone.

Morale is at an all time low but Lanzarote will have to pick themselves up as this Sunday they face a home match against the inform Las Zocas. The Tenerife side are in fine form lately unbeaten in their last six outings winning five of them which has moved them up to fourth spot. Kick off time is yet to be confirmed though it will probably be played at the earlier time of 11.30am.
