Home run

A 32nd-minute strike from Chico was enough to secure victory over Sporting Braga B last Sunday afternoon and extend Portimão’s sequence of home wins to four.

The visitors were reduced to ten men for the best part of the second half and Senegalese new signing Gomis should have doubled the Algarveans’ advantage on his debut but could only hit the bar following a great move from Fabio Felicio. Nonetheless, manager Lazaro Oliveira’s charges are continuing their rise up the table and will be hoping to further reduce the current six-point gap to one of the two promotion places at Santa Clara on the Azores this Sunday.
