I am not sure why it is every time the game looks easy we struggle and when it is hard the team steps up their game. La Roda came to Tenerife with clear ideas, to defend and try for a point and they managed this very well. CD Tenerife had 15 corners and not a single ball went in but there will always be games like this.Looking forward during the playoffs every team will be looking to win so this sort of play shouldn't happen.

The fans were outstanding and yet again showed up in force to watch and support the team. Almost 11,400 were there to cheer yet again and push the team on.

A point was better than nothing although we are again third after Albacete managed a win in the afternoon and Castilla won at home which moved the gap back to 6 points. That said Lugo drew and Oviedo took a pasting in Gran Canaria.
