The match against Numancia has taken its toll on the line-up. As a result of this compromise, Aitor Sanz will be sitting out the match due to a ban, and Paco Montañés and Juan Villar due to injuries.
The new additions to the preliminary line-up of 19 football players are Jorge and the following players from the reserve team: Brian Martín, Bolaños and Nahuel.
Martí is unsure of his starting eleven, "I have a general idea, but I¿m still on the fence" he says. However, he is convinced that there is a broad range of players and that the team will be competitive.
Saturday¿s encounter will be particularly special for the coach, as Lorca coach Curro Torres is "a friend" of his with whom he shared locker rooms, and even a room, during his time spent playing for Tenerife back when Rafa Benítez was coach and it was a first division team.
Although Lorca is currently in the drop zone of the league table, Martí trusts in the work of Curro Torres, and believes that if they continue working as hard as they have up until now, they will soon climb away from the bottom, as it is a run of bad results, rather than poor game.
