Lanzarote´s first away goal in their last five attempts will be of little consolation following their fourth successive away defeat which is also their heaviest loss in more than a year.

The Rojillos began the match the much better of the two sides pressing their opponents back into their final third. As early as the 22ndminute Lanzarote were reduced to ten men following the second yellow card for the Rojillos star player Ayoze Peréz.

The sending off didn’t seem to change the rhythm of the game, in fact it seemed to spur the Rojillos on. Just before the half hour, Toñito curled in a corner kick and central defender Carlos Rosa connected with an unstoppable header giving the Rojillos a deserved 0-1 lead.

The Rojillos were looking good and minutes later they should have scored a second when Toñito´s shot straight into the goalkeepers arms when he should have done better. The home side looked nervous of the 10 man Lanzarote team but even with all the possession the Rojillos were unable to extend the lead.

All the good work from Lanzarote was undone in just one minute. In the 42nd minute and on a rare attack striker Pedro turned inside the box and beat keeper Ruymán with a fierce drive to level the scores at one apiece. Only moments after the restart Lanzarote lost possession in the centre of the park, the pass to feed Pedro was perfect and he stuck the ball away turning the game on its head by incredibly giving his side a 2-1 lead to take into the half time break.

Despite the demoralising two goals at the end of the first half the Rojillos still looked upbeat and should have had a penalty early in the second half when defender Chino handled the ball inside the penalty area but the offence was missed by the official who waved play on. This clearly was not going to be Lanzarote´s day.

The home side then began to look more comfortable on the ball as Lanzarote began to pay the price for their one man disadvantage. The legs began to tire as their opponents made the Rojillos chase shadows.

Nevertheless only a single goal was the difference and midfielder Vladi came close to levelling the scores but his shot was deflected wide by a Telde defender.

In the 84th minute it was curtains for the Rojillos as Sub Borja made it 3-1 and four minutes later midfielder Echedey rubbed salt in the wounds as he netted his teams fourth pushing his side up to third spot in the league table whilst Lanzarote slip one place to 11th.

Next Sunday Lanzarote are at home to Real Sporting San José and the kick off time will be confirmed later in the week.
