Same players

It was like Jose Luis Oltra sent out different players in the second half. The game changed and the level of comitment from the CDT players was 100% more. This was the style of play we saw last week in the final 20 mins against Valladolid and I hope we will see more of it. The players chased every ball and made every play count. Goles were scored by Ricardo and Nino but there was a chance for Angel with a late miss.

In the after game interview Manolo Preciado the trainer for Sporting said thet Tenerife deserved the win because they worked really hard. He said the need to win and the support from the fans caused the players to play their best and therefore win. Sporting he claimed had been unlucky with injuries, both Bilic y de De las Cuevas were changed due to injury.

Jose Luis Oltrastated that the team had perservered and had been superior to their rival. "It needed a great effort after the first play when we nearly scored and then their goal. Especially as they have had seven games in a row without loosing." When asked about his expulsion he replied that he had protested and disrespected the ref, this was bad and so he had been sent off
