"We have a home game, and at home we are a power. We want to show that to the bambergers as well", this is the clear message from anton bobenstetter, coach of TSV buchbach, where FC fubball-regionalligist FC eintracht bamberg 2010 will play this saturday (14 o'clock).
The hosts' record so far is impressive only on home soil. At the moment they are in fourth place and have won twelve and drawn four of their 23 games. 23 of their 40 payers they got at home and had to leave the court only twice as losers. For TSV buchbach, the game against bamberg marks the start of the rest of the second half of the season. Bobenstetter is correspondingly motivated: "we are ready and eager to get started!"
Still one bill open
But the team of trainer petr skarabela will be similarly spurred on. On the one hand, because they last played against the 1. FC nurnberg II at least in the second half showed a good performance and so also with the 1:1 deserved to keep a point in the cathedral city, on the other hand, because the bamberger still have a score to settle with today's opponent. 0:4 was the result in august 2012 at fuchs-park-stadium. Buchbach's top attacker stefan lex scored two of his total of 16 goals in the process.
But with the encounter against nurnberg, the violets are one step ahead of the home side: "our advantage is that we already played against the club last weekend and know where we stand", according to skarabela. Bobenstetter has a similar view: "of course, this is a huge disadvantage for us. The first game is never easy, you don't know exactly where you stand. But: we are well prepared and in good spirits."
Skarabela is warned and female: "we go to a strong opponent, where we have to bring a top performance. We have always looked good against strong teams, and we want to prove that again on saturday. The table has become really tight, and we don't want to lose touch with the non-relegation places." In terms of personnel, the FC coach can make full use of his resources in this game, all suspensions have been "served, there are no (more) casualties to mourn.
