Abel Ferreira’s Sporting B side sank to their second straight defeat at home to Aves on Friday night.
Abel made several changes to the team that lost away to Portimonense previously. Rúben Semedo replacing Tobias Figueiredo, Carlos Mané started ahead of Iuri Medeiros and with Gérson Magrão and Iván Piris both selected for the first team squad Seejou King and Filipe Chaby were also in the first eleven. Sporting B were perhaps most importantly without the suspended Ricardo Esgaio.
The visiting side took the lead after Welder gave a penalty just before half-time. Pedro Pereira stepped up to put Aves in the lead. Abel Ferreira will be concerned of his side now conceding two penalties in two consecutive games.
As Sporting B chased the game in the second half Abel brought on Luka Stojanović for his first B team game of the side to replace Seejou King.
In the 73rd minute Sporting B equalised through Salim Cissé as he scored close-range past veteran goalkeeper Quim. The level scores seemed to more fair in relation to how the match had gone thus far.
Unfortunately for Sporting though Aves managed to grab a winner in the 79th minute through Brazilian forward Andrew.
This result now leaves Sporting B 15th in the Segunda Liga table with a tricky match away to 3rd place Tondela coming up next.
