Into the fray

Portimonense recorded their first victory of the new season, albeit in a local friendly. Coach João Bastos was particularly impressed with new signings Sérgio Organista, scorer of the only goal against Lagoa in Parchal, and winger Fabricio.

Fellow recent arrivals Bruno Simão, Djamil Camara, French central defender Tadembo and Loule trialist Gary Bowes also gave satisfactory debuts.

Unfortunately the evident lack of firepower in front of goal was mirrored in last Sunday’s subsequent League Cup match with Atletico during which the Algarveans could have recorded a cricket score.

As it was, a host of golden opportunities in front of the opposition goal went begging with only Simi finding the back of the net to produce a less than satisfactory draw.

In order to progress from the preliminary group phase of the competition Portimonense must now beat Freamunde away this weekend.
