Paco Jemez has lamented a ‘bad first half’ as his Rayo Vallecano side lost 3-0 to Real Valladolid last night.

The Franjirrojos let in three goals in 17 minutes either side of half time yesterday evening, and the Coach has claimed that his side couldn’t get back in the game after a poor opening 45.

“It was a bad first half,” he told a Press conference. “If we do the right things then we would have had options in the second half to compete.

“We just lacked effort – we had the ball but couldn’t seem to do much with it.

“I’m not the sort of person to blame bad luck, but it is true that we’ve had a tough run of fixtures.”
