Chelsea winger Kakuta hits Rayo Vallecano winner

Gael Kakuta struck the winner for Rayo Vallecano in last night's triumph at Almeria.

The on-loan Chelsea winger's late strike saw Rayo Vallecano take another big stride away from the relegation zone with a 1-0 win over struggling Almeria.

Rayo came into the match on the back of a 1-0 win over Celta Vigo last week which arrested a worrying slide, and Kakuta's 86th minute strike saw them follow it up with a victory which gives them a seven-point cushion over the bottom three.

Almeria, however, sit outside the drop zone on goal difference only, and have now picked up only one point from their last six matches.
