The noose has tightened for U.D. Lanzarote after failing once again to pick up anything against direct relegation rivals.

Nothing the Lanzarote captain Vladimir can do as his team stare at third division footballTo round off an awful day for the Rojillos, defender Andrés Gasparini received a straight red card late on as Lanzarote finished the match with 10 men.

If next week is going to be Lanzarote´s last home game in this division it is against one of Spain’s top sides Real Oviedo. Stan Collymore’s old team is already assured a play off spot when they secured the highest winning victory this season in Spain’s league by battering Vecindario 9-1.

Villanovense have given themselves hope with this victory moving up one place to third from bottom but also on equal points (38) with four other sides including Tenerife B who currently occupy the relegation play off position.Ex Rojillo Juanjo sinks the Rojillos with a hat trickFive minutes later and Toñito saw his effort from 10 yards fly inches over the upright as did Vladi moments later from an identical position.

During the entire second half the Rojillos gave their heart and soul with Toñito and Jonathon Torres orchestrating the pressure.

In the 73rd minute a great one two with Carlitos and Toñito saw himself with just the keeper to beat but the Oviedo keeper Serrano who concedes on average less than one goal a game saved at the winger’s feet. Another good effort from Torres produced a brilliant finger tip save from Serrano and Lanzarote´s hopes began to fade.

In the second minute of injury time the leagues third top scorer Manu Busto nailed the coffin shut with a classy individual finish following a counter attack.

The final game of the season is away versus Vecindario with neither side with anything to play for. The Gran Canarian side is sitting comfortable in 11th place and even if Lanzarote win they will finish the season bottom.
