Marbella are now the league's second worst team away from home, having amassed just seven points on their travels this season.

Their most recent away day, when they travelled to face Linense on Sunday, was the latest miserable chapter as Padilla's side fell to a 3-0 defeat.

The hosts raced to a two-goal lead thanks to goals from Pirulo and Gato inside the first twenty minutes and kept Marbella far from their goal as they held a high line and kept the ball in the opposing half.

Marbella, limited to long-range shots, struggled to get a foothold in the game and it was eventually put out of their reach in the 63rd minute when Pirulo sealed his brace from the edge of the area.
