Mallorca coach Fernando Vázquez, relaxed enough during the win over Girona. | Miquel Àngel Borràs
Real Mallorca won their first game of the season when they hung on to beat Girona 1-0 on Sunday night, taking a few faltering steps back up the league table in the process. This win was just the morale-boosting tonic the islanders wanted, as it moved them off bottom place (where we now are on five points with six other teams). But, boy, did we make heavy weather of the win.
