Monte were three points down before a single kick in last Sunday’s encounter after their Orihuela win 12 days ago was reversed due to playing an unregistered player, Fernando, though the club beg to differ and have appealed against the ruling.

They got the perfect start on Sunday when in the fifth minute, as Carlos skipped through the Redovan defence to score. Monte continued to attack and found the Redovan keeper in top form, before German doubled Monte’s lead inside the half hour, and then Aureu missed a sitter within the box as he club the ball well over the crossbar when it was surely easier to score. That was a turning point as in the 37th minute, Redovan pulled one back from the penalty spot, and then after the re-start, the home side were on level terms after some sloppy Monte defending.

The match was officiated by one of the worst referees ever seen at this level of football, with both sides and their managers frustrated by a stream of incorrect decisions like awarding throw-ins to the wrong side on a regular basis. Monte favourite Vaz came on for the second half and immediately caused problems for Redovan, but the referee had the final inept word of the game when in the closing seconds, a Monte shot hit the Redovan crossbar in a Geoff Hurst 1966 moment, and spun down apparently over the goal-line. The match official begged to differ and it finished in a draw, which Monte should have sealed up as a victory in the first half.

CD Montesinos now entertain Atletico Orihuela this Sunday with a 4.30pm kick-off. CD Benijofar drew at Atletico last weekend, with Berni getting the equaliser in the 83rd minute. Benijofar are at home to Sporting Orihuela this weekend.
