Real Valladolid boss Sergio Gonzalez has said he is happy with his side’s 0-0 draw with Getafe on Friday evening.
Valladolid are yet to score this season, having been held to a blank draw at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Sergio’ side gained promotion to La Liga last term, but they are yet to get off the mark in Spain’s top division.
In what was an even encounter, both sides failed to break the deadlock – despite 19 shots between them.
Chances proved few and far between in the first half, although Jaime Mata was doing his best to score past his old club, being denied in the first half on two occasions by visiting keeper Jordi Masip.
Enes Unal played an important part for the visitors against Barcelona last week and his hard work almost saw him score Valladolid’s first goal of the season in the first period, but the on-loan Villarreal front-man could do little to test David Soria in the Getafe goal.
Angel Rodriguez has been linked with a move away from Getafe this summer, but the home fans were delighted when he started the game. His inclusion failed to see him score though and the point leaves both sides sitting in mid table.
“I am happy because it is another point that we can add, and each point gives us life. We are in a good position and that makes me happy,” Sergio told gathering reporters after the game.
“I do not worry about not scoring, we have started the season fearful and we have had good chances to score.
“We have to keep working hard and our striker are just getting used to their new team-mates. We will grow as a team.”
Valladolid will next host Alaves, whilst Getafe will travel to Sevilla on the weekend of the 16th September.
