  • Callejón's 84th-minute goal sealed the three points in the Costa side's opening fixture of the second phase of the season

Rather belatedly Marbella fans have something to smile about. In his first game in the dugout, new coach Abraham García led his side to victory on Sunday in their first fixture of the second round of the Segunda B season to avoid relegation to the newly formed fifth tier.

Having already been condemned to relegation to the fourth tier, this morale-boosting win came at the perfect time.

It was sealed late on, in the 84th minute, when forward Callejón controlled the ball inside the area before lashing the ball past a helpless Wilfred between the sticks.
