After the 4:2 victory in the direct duel with the SG gundelsdorf/rreitsch, the top team SV gifting had already pulled six points clear of the chasing pack in district class 4. This work, however, was undone by the gifting team’s 2-1 defeat to SV steinwiesen last weekend. The gundelsdorfer and the FC wallenfels took advantage of this slip and shortened the gap again to three payers.
Steinwiesen faces another top team this week: the fifth-placed SG rothenkirchen/pressig. "I am curious to see if steinwiesen can also score there, after they have surprisingly defeated the table leader from gifting. I still think it will be enough for a narrow home victory for the SG", estimates bastian bar, the captain of FC wacker haig.
Bar and his teammates are in seventh place after 17 games with 28 points. After the third place in the previous season, this is a small step backwards in terms of the table. Nevertheless, haig is satisfied with the way the season has gone so far.
"Actually, we are relatively satisfied so far, because we still have connection to the front platze. We play some good football, but often don’t manage to use our chances to decide the game, summarizes bar the season.
Prestige duel against burggrub
In haig, meanwhile, the focus is on the future: "it is important that many young people enjoy playing soccer here and that something develops in the coming years," says cardinal, stresses bar. On sunday, after the draw at FC hirschfeld (1:1), a win is now expected again. Because this time the haiger must run in the derby against the table last from burggrub.
The burggruber decided the basement duel against tettau for themselves and want to pick up on it naturally. "We must approach the derby with full concentration. The game will not be easy, as they could last week self-confidence with the victory against tettau refuelled. In any case, I expect that everyone in our team will be fully motivated for this prestigious duel. For the haiger fans this game is the most important of the season", explains bar.
