Almeria to put the scoring boots on and start off with a clean slate in March

The Rojiblancos bagged only two points in the past month of February

February has been a bitter pill to swallow for Almeria, so the team are now determined to start off with a clean slate in March, after bagging just two points in five games in February. It has been the worst month for the side since the 2019/20 season kicked off. 

The UD Almeria first team will play four games in March with the firm intention of reacting in the championship, clawing their way up in the table and willing to face every encounter of the remaining two months of competition with the highest aspirations. By the way,the Rojiblancos will play on home turf three of their four matches in April, so that the Juegos Mediterraneos Stadium has to become a ‘fortress’, especially when José María Gutiérrez’s men had to settle for two losses and one draw in their last three home performances. 

As already mentioned, March has to be the turning point for UD Almeria in their struggle to try to gain promotion to the First Division. After the match against Deportivo, the squad will be travelling to Albacete to face opponents who are doing their best to avoid the drop; later on, our contenders will host UD Las Palmas, who depending on their results can either rise higher in the standings or slip to lower spots in the table. The month will come to an end with a meeting that could be decisive against direct rivals Real Zaragoza at ‘La Romareda’. 

Almeria started the season back in August winning seven of the nine points at stake, then the team earned ten points in five games in September. Regarding October and November, with the same number of matches, the Almeria squad bagged 6 and 9 points respectively. The players finished the year with four points out of nine that led them to become runners-up seven points behind the leaders. 

Almeria had their scoring boots on at the beginning of 2020. The Rojiblancos were top of table after winning consecutively their first three fixtures. However, the team ended January with a bitter home defeat and in February, the red and white colours defenders only managed to clinch two points in five match weeks. Right now, it is time to start off with a clean slate.
