UD Lanzarote: 1-0 min 43 Alex Roja

As the old proverb goes "if you cant get the ball get the.

9th October 2011

The Rojillos return to winning ways following the two game losing streak and move back up to mid table just three points from the play offs and seven points off top spot.

The match began with Lanzarote dominating possession but this just showed the real problem of the lack of firepower. Without the suspended front men of Toñito and Echedey and the resignation of fellow strike partner Jonathan Torres the Rojillos lacked ideas and the all important clinical finish in the final third of the pitch.

The Conejeros (locals) squandered numerous opportunities in the opening 30 minutes and San Andrés then realised the threat was minimal and began to impose themselves as they enjoyed their fair share of possession.

In the latter stages of the half Lanzarote regained the ball and midfielders Alex Yunes and Ayoze Peréz both came close to opening the scoring. The breakthrough finally came two minutes before half time. Right back Ángel Gil curled in a delightful cross from the wing and Lanzarote B team player Alex Rojas glanced the ball neatly home with a majestic header for his first goal for the senior side and more importantly taking his club into the half time break with a 1-0 lead.

The second half began as a carbon copy of the first with the Rojillos dominating and fluffing their chances. Ayoze struck a post with a header and Rosmen fired wide.

As the game headed into the latter stages the visitors began to push forward but the Rojillo defence looked comfortable and Santi Lampón in goal was rarely threatened. In the final minute of added on time the Rojillos had a glorious chance to double their lead. Rosmen and Ayoze both broke following a corner for San Andrés and found themselves with just the keeper to beat. Rosmen still lacking in confidence had far too much time to think and offloaded the ball to Ayoze who had drifted offside and needless to say it all ended pear shaped.

Still, three welcome points sends the Rojillos back into 10th place. This week the Rojillos travel midweek to Tenerife to take on 7th placed C.D. Marino.
