Officially, there are still six games to go in the fubball-landesliga nordost until the 19th. May on the program. But only one club, spvgg bayreuth II, is in the running with 28 completed games.
FC lichtenfels is a game in arrears (in schwabach on tuesday, 24. April), today’s hosts, SV friesen, still have four catch-up games to play on the calendar. The burden is on the substance. Both opponents lost their home games on wednesday, but are still in the safe midfield of the table.
Lichtenfels still in 8th place
Lichtenfels is in 8th place despite the bitter 0:1 home defeat against SV memmelsdorf. However, the next four games in particular should be positive in order to ensure direct league survival, as they are all against direct rivals.
Today, saturday (16 o’clock), the FCL-kicker can play at the SV friesen (11.) distance a direct competitor to seven points with a win.
The team of coach alexander grau and christian goller gambled away an even better position in the fight for direct class preservation on wednesday in the catch-up game against memmelsdorf. In the 88. Min. Had to accept the 0:1 from thomas kamm. "It was a very weak game from us", FCL coach does not like to look back. "The commitment and the willingness to run have been right, but fubballerisch was not enough."
The next four games will be all the more important for the FCL. First up is SV friesen (11).), then comes relegation candidate FSV bayreuth (16.) in the korbstadt, before it is in the auswartsdoppelpack successively against the SC schwabach (9.) and against the recently resurgent vfl frohnlach (17.) goes.
Goller: score somehow
For this phase, however, christian goller has not issued any precise instructions to his team, rather the lichtenfelser training manager says: "if we play like we did against memmelsdorf, then it will be extremely tight against every team". We must now somehow get three, four points to be safe."
For the lichtenfelser it applies now to direct the full concentration on the meeting in friesen. SVF coach armin eck’s team suffered a bitter 0:2 defeat at home to league rivals spvgg selbitz (12.) and is therefore against lichtenfels already something under pressure.
Friesen still has four catch-up games
The friesen team currently has a seven-point lead on the first relegation place. In no less than four catch-up games, however, the frankenwald team still has plenty of opportunities to score points.
Firnschild missing for the frieseners
The 2:2 draw in the first leg, when the korbstadt team only equalized in the final minute, should be enough of a warning for the gaste. However, against lichtenfels the then double-goal scorer nils firnschild will be missing with a red suspension.
"I would be satisfied with the result of the first leg", explains christian goller. "Friesen has the potential to be well above the drop zone at the end of the season. In any case, we must not let ourselves be bought off again, as we were in the first game."
