JIM: Typical relegation battle

Real Valladolid boss Juan Ignacio Martinez was philosophical about his side’s point against Osasuna on Friday.

The Pucela drew 0-0 with the Rojillos yesterday evening, leaving both clubs perilously close to the drop zone, in 17th and 16, respectively.

“This game was typical of two sides at this stage of the season,” he told a Press conference.

“But for a team playing for survival, it’s always important to keep adding points, no matter how they come.

“We have to be pleased with our work rate and effort tonight. We had some chances, but we knew it was going to be tough.”
