JIM: We were spared defeat

Juan Ignacio Martinez admitted that Elche had the better chances against his Real Valladolid on Monday night, but that he wasn’t disappointed in his team.

Valladolid took a point back home with them in recording a 0-0 draw at the Martinez Valero this Week 4, and with their Coach recognising that it could have been worse.

“We have been spared defeat with a brilliant save from Edu Albacar’s chance, when there was little time until the end of the game,” conceded Martinez post-match.

“We have had more possession, but the opponent has had the best chances to score.

“But, I am happy because we generated chances and that’s the bottom line. I do not mind the lack of goals, because they will come, for sure.

“Today we have created chances against a team that is very hard to create chances against.”
