MATCH REPORT | Novelda CF 1 CD Torrevieja 0. Struggling for goals!
2017-02-12 20:45:00



  Struggling for goals
With 25 goals scored in 26 league matches, CD Torrevieja have struggled to win games this season. Only four teams have suffered at their hands and Torry will meet three of those sides, plus fellow strugglers Muro in March - the month of destiny.
On this performance in Novelda, against a side that moved into fifth place, Torry still has a chance of avoiding disaster this term. But the truth is that somehow, some way, they must start scoring goals with regularity. Eight of the remaining fourteen matches will be at home and this advantage must be exploited ruthlessly.
It was only to be expected that former Torry striker from early this season, Zapata, would be their downfall. He played well throughout the game, then popped up exactly where strikers need to be to tap in the winner from two yards out, with a little over ten minutes left on the clock. Torry cannot complain about this defeat. Despite several commendable performances, especially from Martin, they were second best. Novelda hit the post in both halfs and Torry did not trouble Alberto in the home goal in the ninety minutes.
Two of Torry's new signings started the match, with three more introduced after the team had conceded the only goal of the game. Torry played fairly well, but cannot get away from the fact that goal scoring is their weakness. Teams cannot win matches unless they score, and Torry find that part of the game very, very difficult. There is no shortage of effort. Lewis Allen, playing his first match since before christmas, worked tirelessly in midfield, despite that not being his favoured position. Luis Carlos defended resolutely and joined in attacks with gusto. Debutants Walid and new captain Javi Meca made favourable first impressions, but once more Torry drew a blank, the root cause of their problems.
It is high flyers Ontinyent who visit the Nelson Mandela on Sunday when the game kicks off at 11.45am, to allow fans to enjoy the carnival later. Ontinyent come on the back of a hard fought win over Alzira, another promotion candidate, and have already defeated Torry this term. Holding tight onto that 4th play off place and with Novelda breathing down their neck, they will want to take maximum points home from this encounter with a relegation threatened opponent. Now more than ever Torry need their fans to turn out in numbers and encourage their side to beat the odds which are now stacked against them. The new signings have been made, the training intensified, the stakes are high. Those wins have to start on Sunday, else it is the countdown to the Preferente.
