  • The Costa side's inconsistent form returned on Sunday as they surrendered a lead to draw to the Las Palmas B team in Gran Canaria

Marbella's victory over Recreativo last week seems to have been a false storm. The Costa side's inconsistent form returned on Sunday as they surrendered a lead to draw to the Las Palmas B team in Gran Canaria.

The first half was characterised by a territorial battle in midfield with the hosts forced to soak up the pressure as they lacked the quality to cause any damage themselves.

The first sign of class to shine through came just before half time and it was the visitors who benefited from it when Callejón, from the edge of the area, placed a sublime effort into the back of the net, clipping the crossbar on the way in.

Marbella's lead didn't last long though; 12 minutes after the restart Satoca levelled the scores with a left-footed strike beyond the reach of Alfonso Herrero.

Sadly for the 180 spectators in attendance, the stalemate returned and neither side seemed able, or willing, to go all out for the winner.
