JIM: Win will be a turning point

Juan Ignacio Martinez expects Real Valladolid’s 1-0 win over Villarreal to be a turning point in their season.

The Pucela beat the Yellow Submarine on Saturday thanks to a first half Jesus Rueda strike, and the Coach has admitted that the three points will be the catalyst for a surge up the table.

“This is going to be a turning point in our season,” he told a Press conference. “We showed real heart and effort here. I believe that this team can pull out of the relegation fight.

“Now we have to do what we did here against other teams.

“We’re going to lose a few, but with that sort of fight, we’re going to win more.

“I was delighted with Jesus’ goal – it was a great strike and a great win.”
