The Armeros continue to put points on the board to cement their spot in the higher echelons of mid-table

This term has seen the side's form at Ipurua provide a strong platform

Eibar continue to rack up the points, as they maintain their position in the higher echelons of mid-table, with the side's home form at Ipurua providing them with a strong platform.

During the course of the past month, the Armeros' five outings have yielded three wins and a draw and defeat apiece.

In the back-to-back home meetings with Celta Vigo and Real Betis, José Luis Mendilibar's charges evidenced the influence of the Ipurua factor to prevail 1-0 and 3-1 respectively.

Following on from these two triumphs, the team once again tasted victory in their next outing, which came in the Copa del Rey round of 32 first-leg clash away to Sporting Gijón. The visitors claimed a 2-1 win to put themselves into a commanding position ahead of the return leg.

In the side's next league fixture, Mendilibar's men slipped to a 3-1 reverse at the hands of Athletic Club as the imposing San Mamés took its toll, although the team were in with a chance of claiming a point right until the death.

Next up, Eibar faced a tough test as Deportivo Alavés arrived at Ipurua boasting a strong away record which had seen them collect points in five of their eight away assignments this campaign. The encounter ended in a goalless stalemate which was disappointing for the home faithful, but the result nevertheless served to see the team pick up another point, which is really important in such games.

Before the year is out, Eibar travel to CD Leganés on Sunday, ahead of the second leg of their Copa del Rey last-32 tie on 21 December (19:00), a game which the Armeros go into with high hopes of progressing to the round of 16.
