Patxi Salinas could not help showing his discomfort at losing a golden opportunity to practically seal salvation in the First RFEF. The three points in A Malata against Racing de Ferrol came from a set piece action that center-back Castro clinched: «It was a very important game. I am worried that my team would have won, which is the important thing. We are in a delicate situation. We had the match achieved, but due to a set piece they tied us. A little upset because two points have gone and happy because in a difficult field we took one, "emphasizes the former lion.
Salinas lamented that the veteran Galician team, almost infrequently, took oil out of the stopped ball when his team was at its best in A Malata, which lived off the income from Malcom Ares's early goal: «Practically we have suffered almost nothing in the second half , knowing that they were going to go up from the 80th minute. At the best moment we were, in a lateral foul, they marked us", says the San Adrián coach, who insists that "we were not going through any trouble . We were very good and we could take it with 0-1, and that with 0-2 it was sentenced ». A stake that needed the logical precautions due to the level of a rival that is third in the table after Racing and Deportivo. “We were not going to risk it. Racing has players with a lot of quality », he points out after the final 1-1 that allows them to have a three-point advantage over the red zone.
Salinas, who saw his team as compact, hardly moved the bench, with only two swaps with Luis Bilbao and Goti coming on as a refresher: «We could make more changes, but we thought at the end of the game from 80, so that he does not come out for 5 minutes I know if it's better or worse. Unless it's to waste time they give you little, between entering and connecting, it's difficult. If you're okay, don't do it. If I see that he is not going to give us anything, do to do ... », he argues from his blackboard drawn from the bench at the Ferrol stadium. Interrogated by the arbitration of Pérez Murey from Madrid, Salinas is polite: «He has been good, he has not been decisive in any action. No complaints, it has not influenced the result.
