Ghana international Wakaso Mubarak flourished on his return to the Las Palmas first team squad and played full throttle in Los Amarillos eased relegation fears with a surprising 1-0 win at Eibar on Friday.

Wakaso, who returned to the Amarillos squad for the game, was the first to send a strong signal of intent from the host.

The 25-year-old drew a low save out of Asier Riesgo in the 20th-minute then Aythami heading just wide from Jonathan Viera’s corner.

Wakaso missed the 2-1 loss against Barcelona with a suspension but was returned to the starting line-up at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurúa by manager Quique Setién and he made major contributions to the game for the win.

Bigas struck in first-half injury time to snap a run of three straight losses and move his team level with third-bottom Sporting Gijon on 24 points.

The result will come as a shattering blow to Eibar, who could have moved up into sixth place and Europa League contention with an expected win.

In a lively start, Dani Garcia had Eibar’s first chance with an effort that was blocked in the box, and then Willian Jose miscued a response from the visitors high and wide off the target.
