U.D. Lanzarote and their travelling band of supporters enjoyed a magical day out in Fuerteventura which was topped off with a superb winner in the 18th minute from a free kick by Marcos Cabrera.
This win puts Lanzarote into joint second position and guarantees a playoff spot with five matches yet to play. The only goal available till the end of the season is to claw back three points to overtake league leaders C.D Mensajero which ensures a Copa Del Rey spot for next season.
Even if Lanzarote were to finish top they would still have to win a home and away tie with a team from the mainland to secure promotion to Segunda B (League 1).
The vibe from the players and fans as we boarded the bus at 7.30am, then onto the ferry was boisterous and all aboard felt as if we were in for a day to remember and how right we all were.
This was never going to be an easy match as the Fuerteventura side were in no way wanting to join our party as inter island rivalry was in full flow.
The home side had slipped down to 15th spot in the league table over recent weeks had the first opportunities going close with a free kick and forcing a good save from the Lanzarote keeper Agoney.
In the 18th minute The Rojillos earned a free kick 25 yards out. Midfielder Marcos Cabrera struck the ball with pace and bend just clearing the heads of the Fuerteventura wall and the ball nestled nicely low into the corner sending the travelling fans into a frenzy.
With the 0-1 lead Lanzarote began to settle and read more »
