False dawn

Portimão’s latest Liga Orangina away outing at Trofense got off to a promising start when Eliezio found the back of the net after only three minutes.

The hosts quickly recovered from the early setback, however, and drew level through Feliz just after the half hour mark.

The Algarveans tried to react after Edu had put Trofense ahead four minutes into the second half but a further strike from Reguila near the end of the encounter put the game out of reach.

Now back in last place in the table, manager Carlos Mozer will be glad to see his injured captain Ricardo Pessoa return for the next home match against fellow strugglers Uniao Madeira on Sunday.
