João de Deus' side dominate but were unable to break the deadlock

Sporting CP B were unable to find their winning form this week, this time being held to a draw by Sp. Covilhã. João de Deus' side actually led for most of the afternoon through Gelson Dala's debut strike for the club after a pass from Pedro Delgado.

Despite Sporting CP B's dominance, play was bogged down for the most part. However, Covilhã were limited to just a single opportunity in the first-half, when Zarabi fired off target from close range (38'). Ary Papel and Gelson Dala were the instigators of most of Sporting CP B's efforts going forward and Ary himself came close to scoring with a shot from range that was turned away by the visiting keeper.
Sporting CP B continued to dominate after the break, playing some quality football and holding down the midfield while blitzing down the flanks. Gelson Dala came close to netting his second, but it was the hosts who struck, after Abdu Conté brought down Harramiz for a penalty converted on by Erivelto.
