Penalty upset

The three points appeared to be in the bag an hour into Portimonense’s latest outing against Feirense.

An opening minute Simi strike combined with a sending off for the home side shortly afterwards had manager Lázaro Oliveira’s men flying into a 3-0 lead with only 30 minutes left on the clock. However, the match was turned on its head with the 65th-minute introduction of Platiny, who contrived to record a hat-trick includingtwo spot kicks, while Portimão suffered red cards for keeper Ramos and defender Ivo Nicolau, producing a most improbable 3-3 score line at the final whistle.

With new signings Anselmo, Gomis and Fabricio it is hoped that the Algarveans can resume winning ways as soon as this Sunday afternoon when Braga are the visitors.
