Crunch weekend for Orihuela CF


ORIHUELA TOOK advantage of a free weekend on the football calendar last week, to rest players and allow injured members of the team to recover their fitness levels ahead of their final push for promotion to Segundo Division B.

The squad has been severely depleted by injuries in recent weeks and as results from teams around them did not go in their favour, they face a must win game this coming Sunday April 23.

After their disappointing 0-2 home loss to Rayo Ibense in their last outing, they take on a Novelda team, who currently sit fourth in the league, currently occupying the last play off spot.

Novelda are also five points ahead of orihuela, so unless the amarillos can win on Sunday, their promotion hopes will be over for the current season.

Even a win would leave Orihuela depending on other results going their way on the final round of matches on the following weekend.

Coach, Machuca expects to have a full squad availbale for the crunch match, which resembles something of a must win cup tie for the yellow shirts of Orihuela on Sunday.
