Brandon Thomas in action for Mallorca away at Girona. | Miguel Garcia de la Arada
Real Mallorca's depressing season didn't get any better when they were robbed of at least a point by a controversial non-existent penalty decision 30 seconds into the second half and went on to lose 1-0 in Girona. Saturday's defeat and Ponferradina losing meant that if Almeria beat Oviedo then it would be down to a four-team relegation dog-fight. Almeria pulled off a magnificent 3-1 win, which was a disaster for us. Now we all have 43 points, three more than third bottom Llagostera (who have now come back into the equation) but we have the best head to head: it's far too close for comfort. One local paper described Almeria's result by saying they had put Mallorca into a coma. We have no option now but to win our last two (back to back) home games of the season starting on Tuesday against Elche. We'll be without Yuste and Brandon Thomas as both received their fifth yellow card and are suspended. There may be a last-minute appeal with regard to Yuste.
