Valladolid take advantage in promotion play-off

Valladolid took a step towards the top flight with a 1-0 away win over Alcorcon in the first leg of the Segunda Division play-off final at Estadio Santo Domingo.


Javi Guerra scored the only goal of the game to give the visitors the edge heading back to their Jose Zorilla stadium for the season finale on Saturday.

Guerra broke the deadlock on 29 minutes after taking Nauzet's cross from the right on his chest and dispatching the ball past keeper Manu Herrera.

Valladolid had reached the final after beating Cordoba, while minnows Alcorcon booked their place in the two-legged affair with victory over Hercules.

Deportivo La Coruna and their Galician neighbours Celta Vigo finished first and second in Spain's second tier to win automatic promotion.
