Another typical segunda B game at home. Puertollano "parked the bus", Real Murcia played some reasonable football for 30 minutes trying to unlock them, took the lead after a rebound off the post and the rest of the game was rather slow, not a lot of urgency. Maybe, after Puertollano had a player sent off, they were thinking more of their 2 weeks off.....anyhow, we scored 2 more in the second half, and end the first half of the season on 41 points. Although Sevilla and Cadiz have played one game less, the three points in the bag only puts pressure on them. 3 important games in January....Sevilla B visit on 9th, we go for a tricky away game at Roquetas the following week, then Cadiz come to the New Condomina. If we get through those unbeaten, we will be in very good shape and have both main rivals at arms length.

Referee : Mr. Medina Méndez. Easy game to referee....but easily conned by playacting.
Att. 4378....which is poor. What is it about the Spanish and midweek games? I love a midweek game!
So just 9 goals conceded in 19 games, defence is solid. And contrary to popular thinking, great defending is also great football!
