Wednesday evening it was clear that the FC sand soccer players would not have a weekend off after all: the game at spvgg bayern hof in the fubball league cup of the bavarian league was postponed from the end of november to saturday (14.30 o’clock) brought forward. For both teams it is the first game in the competition.
"Take league cup seriously
FC coach matthias stratz can’t see any disadvantages for his team despite the short notice of the game. "It’s important to stay in rhythm", says stratz, who emphasizes the official nature of the game. "We already take the league cup seriously and that’s why we want to win in hof too." The sander coach will therefore not get involved in any rough experiments. "For us, it’s important to develop from game to game."
The sander suffered a setback in last week’s 2-0 defeat at ammerthal. But the 39-year-old also saw positives. His team gave everything until the end, but it was often the small things that made the difference. "In the upper palatinate, we virtually poured the goals ourselves", stratz recalls. "We have to put a stop to this."
Sand does not have it all
The FC coach will have to do without goalkeeper stefan klemm, who is absent due to illness, the injured danny schlereth and julius neundorfer (rehabilitation training). In addition, the use of kevin steinmann is decided at short notice.
