Former Manchester United and Everton manager David Moyes lead Real Sociedad to their first away victory in almost a year, with a win at Getafe on 16 March, to finally put an end to the Basque side's hoodoo.

The Scottish boss took charge of the Spanish side in November 2014 and had since failed to win a single game away from home, continuing a bad run of results that lasts since the 1-0 victory over Real Betis at the Benito Villamarin Stadium on 26 April 2014.

After an impressive display by Real Sociedad goalkeeper Gero Rulli during the first-half, Iñigo Martínez scored the only goal of the game following an assist from ex-Queens Park Rangers midfielder Esteban Granero to give Moyes's side their second consecutive victory, after their win against Espanyol.

Speaking after the game, Moyes said: "It's been a long time without winning away from home although we did have the chance to do it earlier against Granada and Levante."

"We really didn't want to see headlines saying that we'd gone for a year without an away win. We're improving and we're getting stronger".

Moyes is gradually improving Real Sociedad, while implementing his own ideas and getting results with the aim of avoiding relegation.

The former United manager replaced Jagoba Arrasate after a poor start to the season, with the team then lying 15th in La Liga with just two victories from their first 11 games - one of them secured by caretaker boss Asier Santana.

And while Real Sociedad have since beaten important teams such as Barcelona or Sevilla, their win at Getafe lifts them to 10th place in La Liga, eight points above the relegation spots.
