The Mighty Pastor!
 
 
Muro put up a brave resistance in this relegation battle and even had a few decent chances to take the game. Most notably when Calzado lost possession and only Jose Carlos stood between success and defeat. His terrific save was vital.
 
Much of the game was scrappy with loads of booting it clear and high in the air, making it a poor spectacle for fans. But there was passion, there was desire and Torry had cool heads and considerable skill. At the back, captain Javi Meca once more stood head and shoulders above the opposition. He is the consummate leader, never putting a foot wrong, reading the game perfectly and commanding his troops with authority.
 
Martin slotted in to the midfield role vacated by the injured Duran. Otherwise it was the same group who dominated Bunol on Sunday. This proved to be much harder graft, with several players struggling to get to grips with the poor surface and a robust home side, fighting for survival. Molina, who had an excellent game on Sunday just could not get going and was replaced on 65 minutes by Borja Mir, whose main contribution was dissenting his way into the referee's notebook.
 
Lewis Allen was frustrated that he could not get on the score sheet, but his contribution was still exceptional. He chased and harried, he won balls in the air and had three great efforts on goal, all of which were well saved by the home keeper. In the early stages Pastor was finding the physical treatment he received tough, getting bullied off the ball as he strove to control it and make headway into the box.
 
There was no stopping him, however, in the 80th minute when he chased a pass out the left wing.  He controlled it and threatened to go on the outside, instead cutting back in and shaking off two tackles before setting his sights on the goal. With perfect execution he steered the ball wide of the far post with enough bend to allow it to curl into the net, out of the reach of Francesc in the Muro goal. It was a delightful piece of skill, from an even more delightful individual.
 
It was enough to win the match and make it three from three for Torry starting with that key victory in Castellon. The team remains, however, in the relegation places after a 3-1 home success for Bunol. Torry has two more home games this month as well as a trip to mid table Silla, so it is all to play for. The first of those games is against an in form Alzira, who currently occupy one of the promotion play off places and who will be hell bent on maintaining that status.
 
Alzira is a team in form, who has only conceded one goal in their last six games and one defeat since 3rd December. It will be a severe test for Torry, but one they are more than able to manage. Everyone needs to be at their best and the lads will need all the support from the stands that fans can muster!
