Share This Story


Sporting Gijon continued its battle against relegation in the Spanish league Sunday with a 3-1 win at Rayo Vallecano.

Sporting striker David Barral was quick to pounce on a poor clearance by the Rayo defense to score his sixth goal of the season 10 minutes in.

Former Rangers forward Nacho Novo then put the result beyond doubt with a pair of goals in the 37th and the 67th as Sporting got its first win in three games.

Miguel ''Michu'' Perez scored a consolation goal for Rayo in added time.
