Almeria 2-2 Real Sociedad

Almeria v Real Sociedad
David Moyes has made a positive impression in Spain, but his successes have come at home

David Moyes is still seeking his first La Liga away win with Real Sociedad after watching his side twice come from behind to earn a point at Almeria.

The struggling hosts went ahead through Jose 'Verza' Garcia's penalty after Thievy Bifouma was brought down by keeper Geronimo Rulli.

Imanol Agirretxe equalised for Sociedad with a well-placed back-header only for Tomer Hemed to restore Almeria's lead.

But the visitors secured a point through Sergio Canales.

Moyes's side move up to 11th in the table ahead of their next league game at home to Sevilla on 22 February.

Sociedad have drawn four and lost two of their six top-flight games away from home since Moyes was appointed as manager in November.

Meanwhile the Sun newspaper reportedexternal-link that Burnley forward Danny Ings is flying to Spain on Saturday to discuss a move to Sociedad.
