UD Almería 'B' will have to wait for the weekend to play their first match of the 2022, since the Andalusian Football Federation (RFAF) has decided to reschedule their league fixture against Huétor Tájar scheduled on Thursday, 6th January. The Granada-based team confirmed several positive cases for Covid-19 within the squad and thus, the organisation of the competition issued a statement in which the youth squad's game was suspended, postponing it to 19th January.

Having said that, Óscar Fernández's boys will not change their training plan during the week. In fact, the Academy players have already resumed training on the Vega de Acá ground, preparing the next away appointment to Alhaurino with a date and kick-off still to be confirmed. 

Almería 'B' went on Xmas hols having said goodbye to 2021 with a victory over Torremolinos (2-1) thanks to goals from Gilbert - who made his UD Almería first-team debut against FC Cartagena - and Raúl Caballero. This triumph fired them to third in the Tercera RFEF table (Group IX) on 29 points, 6 behind the leaders, whose highest position is the only one that grants automatic promotion.
