Normally all of sand had to be at the seestadion on friday evening to support the FC team in their fight against relegation. The only bavarian league team in the habberge district still has a real chance of staying in the league. However, the sanders were not allowed to give away any more points in their three remaining home games.
With TSV kleinrinderfeld (18. Place / 19 points), a team is coming to the lakeside stadium that has already been confirmed as the first team to be relegated. This will not make the hosts' task any easier, but the guests will still sell themselves as dearly as possible. They did this in their last games, in which they won against spvgg selbitz (2:1) and erlangen-bruck (3:1), who are also in the relegation fight, and thus gave FC sand (15. / 30) a good service done.
Sand's rivals have mostly scored recently
For the "black and whites the last matchday, on the other hand, went less well. Even they lost after a good fight somewhat unfortunate at the spvgg bayreuth with 2:4. But the competitors in the relegation fight scored. This means that, apart from kleinrinderfeld, seven other teams are in acute danger of relegation, most of them with 30 or 31 points.
"The facts are clear. Against TSV kleinrinderfeld, it's all about the chance to stay in the league or to be relegated. Every player knows what's at stake and must perform at more than one hundred percent", says coach erwin albert, who assures that his players will show morale, as they did in bayreuth, when they came back from 0:2 down but lost in the end. Albert encouraged his players again afterwards: "we must not give up. We have the chance to pull ourselves out of this mess, and we will do it," says kestler with a smile.
Coach erwin albert urges patience
The guests have nothing more to lose and can play freely and easily. With peter endres, who has already scored 15 goals this season, the guests have one of the most dangerous goal scorers in the bavarian league. "We will need patience", suspects sands coach, who deliberately warns his team not to run forward in hurrah style and neglect their own defense in the process. But he also admits that his team is under pressure to win. "We have to deal with this pressure. We must keep calm. We must not let anyone or anything make us crazy, we must play our own game", so albert.
FC sand's player ceiling remains very dark as the season draws to a close. Besides fabian benkert, who has been injured for weeks, other players are also struggling. However, the team around play leader daniel rinbergas will try everything, so that the three points remain in the lake stadium.
