A point to remain in LaLiga SmartBank

SD Huesca share out the spoils with SD Ponferradina and are mathematically certain of LaLiga SmartBank survival. Javi Martinez scored for the Azulgranas

SD Huesca aimed at reaching the objective of this season by winning today at El Alcoraz. And although they reached the famed 50-point mark, the crowd had to settle for a draw. Ziganda's side seemed to be close to their goal when Javi Martinez put them ahead, but the visitors reacted almost immediately to level matters.

As the minutes went by, the game seemed set for a tie, but SD Huesca had gone out there willing to get their goal. Therefore, after only five minutes, Marc Mateu crossed it for Timor, but no one managed to finish off his header. After that, Pulido fired a shot wide after a corner. Later, Juan Carlos and Ruben Pulido struck as well but without luck. The Oscenses remained dangerous but didn’t step up to make the vital breakthrough and so Ponferradina tested Andres with a clever through-ball into the space ahead of Naranjo, who powered a shot that hit both posts before getting out of the goal. After that, the visitors gained yards over the Altoaragoneses, while SD Huesca’s defence remained solid, so not team went in ahead at the break.

Both struggled to fashion opportunities in a tepid start of the second half. Javi Martinez was the first change for the hosts and he could have finished off his first counter-attack, but crossed the ball for Andrei, who couldn’t connect the ball. SD Huesca remained dangerous on the occasions they ventured forward through Obeng, Gerard Valentin and later Timor, waking up the home fans. It was finally Javi Martinez who found the net, whose predatory instincts put him in the right place to turn in the rebound when San Roman saved Marc Mateu’s powerful volley, to open the scoring for the home side. Florian Miguel was close to make it two following a foul taken by Marc Mateu. However, it was Ponferradina who fired the ball home with a brilliant goal from the edge of the area fifteen minutes from the end. It promised to be a pulsating finale and it didn’t disappoint. At the end, Ponferradina were mathematically relegated whereas SD Huesca are mathematically safe from relegation with two games to spare.
