TSV rottendorf – FSG wiesentheid (today, 3 p.M.).
Your place is worrisome. Wiesentheid is just one point away from the relegation zone (13)./12) currently in the table. The defeat in schwebenried was already the fifth winless game in a row. Seven points separates them from second place, and twice that number from first place, where today’s opponents stand. At the sportanlage am grasholz, the free-falling wiesentheider take on table-toppers rottendorf (1./26) on. At 2:3 in schwebenried, the team of coach wolfgang oddoy once again dominated the match, created the best chances, but missed them. Twice the hosts knocked the ball off the goal line in the final phase, another two times were the guests post and crossbar in the way.
At the back, great, at the front, bad
it is almost exasperating to see why the course of the game and the results do not want to adapt to each other, whereby the problem does not seem to lie in the tubes, but in the heads. With only 13 goals against, wiesentheid is quite secure in defense, only three competitors love less so far. "I am satisfied with our defense, both in terms of backward movement and forward play", says oddoy. In front, however, the opposite is true.
Only three teams scored less than wiesentheid. Up to the danger zone, the team develops numerous opportunities, but then lacks the penetration capacity. Not only based on the results it looks very different in rottendorf at the moment. The only still undefeated team in the district league east has recently recorded three wins. "We are currently experiencing the reverse case", rottendorf coach marco amrehn speaks to the negative run of the opponent.
"Two rather average performances were enough for us to still pick up six points. It’s a shame that wiesentheid is currently far down in the table, because we would have liked to have played this game under different circumstances, says amrehn about the situation of the guests. Because of the pre-season expectations, the meeting of the previous year’s third-placed team in the western district league and a team relegated from the upper district league could have turned into a real top match.
In terms of personnel, things are looking less rosy at the moment in both camps. While the guests in schwebenried already brought together just the most necessary lineup, the hosts are missing up to five players. In addition to the long-term injured jens eiring and paul lucke, who are out with a torn cruciate ligament, julian wolf is suffering from a torn muscle fiber. Michael buchs and michael strohlein are injured and therefore questionable for today. "The failures are already enormous. More may not happen with us", says amrehn in view of his squad of 20 men. After deducting the goalkeepers and possibly five missing players, the personnel is reduced to only 13 players – just enough to change three times.
