Sub sinks Olhanense

Olhanense sunk to within a point of the relegation zone in the Premier Liga when fellow strugglers V.Setúbal snatched all three points with a late goal.

Paulo Tavares came off the bench with fifteen minutes remaining and shortly afterwards rifled an unstoppable shot past Bracali. Both sides were tentative in their approach work but the visitors were hungrier for the ball and Olhanense only came to life after going a goal down.

Even the usually lively Abdi, returning from injury, was not at his best. Olhanense almost grabbed an equaliser in the last minute of stoppage time when Babanco’s corner found the head of Targino but super-sub Paulo Tavares was on hand to clear off the line.

The Algarve side travel to Madeira for a difficult game against Nacional on Sunday.
