Real Sociedad 0-1 Rayo Vallecano

Manucho
Manucho made only three substitute appearances for Manchester United in 2008-09 before a five-month loan spell at Hull City

David Moyes suffered his first home defeat since he took charge of Real Sociedad as his side were beaten by Rayo Vallecano in La Liga.

Former Everton and Manchester United boss Moyes, on the touchline for the last time before a two-game ban, has now failed to win his last four games.

Sociedad striker Imanol Agirretxe twice had shots saved by Vallecano goalkeeper Tono before Esteban Granero shot wide.

But the visitors won it when ex-United striker Manucho headed in a corner.

The Angola international, who was at Old Trafford for the 2008-09 season but only made three substitute appearances for the Red Devils before a loan spell at Hull, met Roberto Trashorras's 81st-minute set-piece to score the only goal.

Reign in Spain: Moyes' record at Sociedad

Sociedad have not won since a 1-0 victory against Barcelona on 4 January and are 12th in the table, only three points above the relegation zone.

Moyes took charge in November in his first job since being sacked by United in April but has only won three of 12 matches at Sociedad.

The Scot will have to watch their next two games - against Eibar at home on 24 January and away at European champions Real Madrid on 1 February - away from the touchline after his dismissal during his side's Copa del Rey game against Villarreal on Wednesday.

He remonstrated with officials over an offside decision and was sent off, before he climbed over a pitch-side fence to sit with his side's supporters.
