CD MONTESINOS 3  RP ORIHUELA 2

After losing their first two league matches and sacking boss, Camacho, Monte looked an altogether different outfit under the new managerial team of Carlos Perez and Angel Ivan, who have turned things round in all aspects in just a fortnight. They certainly had their work cut out at Sunday’s interval, with Monte trailing two-nil at the break, as two defensive errors saw the visitors capitalise with two headed goals.

Carlos Perez read the half-time riot act as the players produced one of the most entertaining 45 minutes of football seen by Monte fans in a long time. Right from the re-start Monte went on the offensive, and the all- important early goal arrived inside the first 10 minutes when Aureu pulled one back. When new forward Carlos (signed only last Friday from Almoradi) got on the end of a cross and headed home at the far post to equalise, the home crowd “raised the roof”, as a victory was very much on. The winning goal was once more scored by the in-form Aureu who finished off a superb four man move to give Monte their first points of the campaign.

Carlos Perez afterwards said he was delighted with the performance, but there still things to sort out, with four regular players set to be available in the next fortnight, after injuries kept them on the sidelines. He also paid tribute to the fans for their outstanding support during the match. Montesinos are away to FB Redovan this Sunday with a 4.00 pm kick-off.
