In its penultimate home game of the season in the fubball-bayernliga nord, FC sand has a difficult task ahead of it this saturday. SV seligenporten, one of the favorites for the championship, will be the guests at the seestadion. After their relegation from the regional league, they have set their sights on immediate promotion. But even against this top opponent, the sanders, who have also been very successful recently, will try not to go away empty-handed. Match starts at 15 o’clock.
"Big points made the FC sand a week ago with the 2:1 auswartssieg at SV haibach. How the team fought and "plodded" after a 1:0 deficit and with only ten men (florian pickel had received a yellow card after about an hour) has to offer, which not only earned the respect of the trainer duo bernd eigner and matthias bayer. "There was a jolt through the team, and it showed that our team has character. Everyone ran even more and stood in for their teammates when necessary. Thanks to an outstanding performance, our boys managed to turn the game around and take home the three points. This for us very important victory we celebrated afterwards also fundamentally", said eigner.
With now 36 points, the FC sand has created a good position for the direct class preservation. Especially since the specter of a six-point deduction from the games won against FC eintracht bamberg is off the table (see separate article below). Owner says nevertheless: "we will not get involved in anything. We will also be on the gas against SV seligenporten. Especially because we can only be aubenseiter in this game, this spurs us on especially. We will definitely try not to go away empty-handed."
In their current condition, the sander team need not be in awe of any opponent. Of the nine games this year lost the schlereths, pickels wieczorek and co. Only one unhappy with 0:1 against eltersdorf. Funfmal went the "schwarz-weiben" as winners from the pitch, three times with a draw. "This upswing shows that our team has developed enormously. We also want to prove against SV seligenporten that we are now difficult to play against any opponent", eigner explains.
Promotion is the goal
Second-placed SV seligenporten will also be motivated to play at the lakeside stadium. The "klosterer aiming for immediate promotion to the regional league, but still two points behind leaders vfb eichstatt. The team from the upper palatinate is an enormously strong squad, which the sander trainer describes as follows: "seligenporten probably has the best offensive lineup in the league."
There are no changes in the FC sand team compared to the last game. Only dominik rippstein (knee problems) and pascal stahl (torn muscle fibers) are injured. Dominik schmitt resumed running practice after bruising his toe. The rest of the squad is available to coach bernd eigner. With 18 points from the last nine games, FC sand’s chance of staying in the league has increased. But this also means that he will certainly not be underestimated by the second-placed team in the table.
