MALLORCA TODAY - Late penalty denies Mallorca win over Ponferradina

Real Mallorca 2 : 2 Ponferradina
At home to a team in a similar league position, Mallorca looked to bounce back after a couple of disappointing results, and they showed a good deal of intent, Alfaro putting them into the lead after just five minutes and Moreno hitting a post a few minutes later. An equaliser by Fofo on twenty minutes was greeted ten minutes later by Victor adding a second for Mallorca. Both teams were having to contend with a strong wind but the action was still an improvement on last week's dull fare against Lugo, even if the second half was producing less notable action than the first until, eight minutes before the end, hand ball by Thomas gave Ponferradina a penalty, which Yuri put away. Frantic attacking by Mallorca in the dying minutes could not retrieve the win and so the team's inconsistency and mid-table position continue. Next up, away next Sunday in La Coruña against second-placed Deportivo.
