A bad day at the office by any standard, CD Tenerife went down 2-1 to a poor Cordoba side and finished with just 9 players on the pitch. Nino was about the only home player to emerge with any credit, he headed a 13 minute lead froma Dubarbier cross but then the errors started coming thick and fast.
Captain Bertran gave away a free kick with a reckless tackle just outside the home penalty area, Callejon stroked the ball into the Tenerife net and an easy win suddenly became a nightmare fight for survival. Centre back Melli went off with a straight red just 5 minutes after the break and the killer goal followed within minutes. Alberto picked up the ball on the break and powered his shot past Sergio Aragoneses in goal.
Las Palmas were winning away and despite Nino’s one man crusade Tenerife couldn’t get back into the game. injury time brought another blow as Pablo Sicilia picked up a second booking and also had to trudge off towards the dressing room, the 9th red of the season for Tenerife. It’s going to take a super human effort to avoid the drop, we continue to hope.
