The Rojillos remain unbeaten away from home and remain in 10th spot though they have closed the gap to the playoff positions to just two points.
The game in Tenerife was littered with yellow cards as well as three red which prevented the flow of the match.The first opportunity fell to Lanzarote with striker Quintero forcing a good save from the Santa Úrsula keeper.
In the 24th minute the home side were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box. On the first attempt the Ref booked Miguel for blocking the free kick as the official believed that the Lanzarote left back moved before the whistle. On the second attempt the Tenerife defender made no mistake when he placed his left foot strike into the top right hand corner with the ball hitting the underside of the bar leaving Rojillos keeper Agoney no chance and giving his side a 1-0 lead. read more »
The Rojillos remain unbeaten away this season but with their ninth draw in twelve games they are sitting in mid table just three points off the playoffs but a whopping eight points adrift of league leaders Las Palmas B.
The home side went into this game on the back of five consecutive defeats though were not short of confidence in the opening stages of this match.
The Gran Canarian side who before today’s match were rooted to the bottom of the league earned themselves a penalty in the 16th minute when Rojillos keeper Agoney clearly brought down midfielder Joshua on the edge of the box.
The Lanzarote number one made amends for his mistake with a low diving save which was edging inside his left hand post. read more »
Lanzarote are fast becoming the team know as the King of the draws as they have now drawn seven of their eleven matches played though not many Lanzarote fans will be complaining about their last two away draws, here against the team who began the day as league leaders and last week against the side that are now league leaders.
The Rojillos have slipped to 10th spot but are one of three teams who have lost just once this season and are still just three points off a playoff spot and a further point off top spot.
The club organised an excursion to the game and once again it proved to be outstanding value, just 20 Euros for residents and 35 Euros for non residents (cannot be the same price as non residents do not get the discount on the ferry). Players and supporters met at the stadium in Arrecife before picking up people in Playa Honda and filling up the 85 seater double decker bus in Puerto Del Carmen before making our way to Playa Blanca to catch the Armas ferry to Fuerteventura.
On arriving in Corralejo we rejoined the bus for the 30 minute ride to Cotillo. It was an hour in the bars before making our way to the ground. For that price the club even bought everyone a bocadillo (roll). Hopefully there will be another trip to Fuerteventura in January when we play Unión Puerto on the 8th January.
The first half played in baking sun was extremely competitive with much of the game being fought out in the midfield. The Majoreros (Fuerteventurians) had the first opportunity when a header from midfielder Héctor which was well saved by the returning Rojillos keeper Agoney. Lanzarote replied when stand in skipper Ayoze rounded the goalkeeper on the half hour but his effort was cleared off the line by a defender.

Lanzarote’s stuttering start to the season continues as they earn just their third point in their last four outings. With striker Dani López leaving the club and with Captain Rosmen who has been out for three weeks through injury and will not be returning for at least a month there is no doubt the Rojillos are lacking firepower upfront.
The day did not begin well for manager Adolfo Pérez with defender Raúl unable to travel due to illness just hours before the flight to Gran Canaria. Fran Gil was drafted into the starting line up for his first game of the season, the Lanzarote centre back had been out with a minor knee injury and a hernia operation.
The opening half hour was even with possession though Lanzarote had three opportunities with Kennedy, Marcos Cabrera and Ayoze Pérez all coming close to breaking the deadlock.
In the 33rd minute Louis Kennedy was only a whisker away from celebrating his 23rd birthday with a goal but his strike from the edge of the area went inches wide of the keeper’s right hand post.
Three minutes later and Arucas striker Omar Rodríguez saw his effort come back off the left hand post and just before the break the hosts again came close with a header as they went into the break on the front foot.
Three minutes into the second half and a defence splitting one two let in Omar Rodríguez . The Gran Canarian striker who has just returned to the island from his stint with Real Madrid under 18´s slid the ball beyond Rojillos keeper Alejandro Martín and inside the right hand post to give the second from bottom side a 1-0 lead.
Lanzarote then had a couple of opportunities to level with Miguel Gómez creating chances for Ayoze Pérez and Toñito but they failed to convert the good work from Miguel. read more »
