Saturday against Nitra to confirm three points from Myjava
In the 4th round of the superstructure part of the league we will be fighting for the first home victory in the second part of the season.
Six games we were waiting for three points in the spring, long waiting was finished last weekend in Myjava, where we were able to beat AS Trenčín after the goals of Ramirez, Kay and Dangubic 3:2. After almost five years we have won the Trencin league scalp, and our Portuguese coach Ricardo Chéu won the first match in the Fortuna league. All our goalscorers in the mentioned match also appeared in the ideal starting eleven of the Fortuna League. Although we did not reduce the four-point loss to the penultimate team of the table, in any case it was a very important victory that kept us in the battle for rescue. We want to build on three points from Myjava in the next home game against Nitra.
With the team from Zobor, we met three times in the current season. There were two battles in the league, one match for the change in the Slovnaft Cup. After a home draw in round 6 (1:1) and losing in round 17 (1:0), there was a 5:1 victory in the cup and advance to the semi-finals. Saturday game will be different in several ways. "We know that the next game will be completely different. It is a different competition, win 5:1 in the cup is history. Nitra is currently in a comfortable position, we will be under pressure. We need victory. After our last league match, I expect the same players´ attitude. I am not satisfied with the quality of the match against Trenčín, we worked on some of the things we had to change in the match. We still have plenty of room for improvement. But the most important thing is the result and in our position we need only good results," admitted 37-year-old coach Ricardo Chéu.
The Nitra football team is ranked second in the Fortuna League Group of releagation table with 29 points. Just after our last match, the experienced coach Ivan Galád left the Nitra bench, Michal Kuruc took the position of the temporary coach of the team. The new coach was able to gain three points in three league games when he tied with Podbrezová (1:1), Trenčín (2:2) and Trnava (1:1). Nitra is waiting for the league win currently for seven games.
