UD Portuarios 0-3 CD Jávea

CD Jávea go third in the table after a comprehensive victory over struggling side UD Portuarios at the Campo Fort-Llopis in El Grau de Gandía. The rojiblancos are now just four points behind league leaders CFI Alicante and in a great position to maintain momentum in the final third of the season and claim a top three spot for a chance of promotion to the Third Division.

However, it didn’t start well for the rojiblancos after Leading striker Juanma Guerrero was dismissed with a straight red after just two minutes. However, the sides were re-balanced barely twenty minutes later when Portuarios defender José Brines received his second yellow which meant that both sides were down to ten men with barely a quarter of the game gone.

The opening goal came just before half-time through Vicente Palau, scoring his first for Jávea since his return a couple of weeks ago. After the break, Luis Carlos doubled the advantage on 60 minutes before substitute Álvaro López secured the three points with a goal thirteen minutes from time.
