Reactions after win against Nitra: We are happy for rescue, we must continue like this
In the 8th round of the Fortuna League superstructure, we won in Nitra and seal our rescue in the highest competition. This is how our footballers reacted after the match.
For the game against Nitra, we started to earn som points and get closer to the our desired goal - saving in the Fortuna league. But we did not enter the match the best, home footballers were active and made some promising opportunities right at the beginning of the match. Paradoxically, we went to the lead when El Moudane sent Ramirez to a separate escape and Venezuelan striker scored: "Today we will only keep the result. We did not play our best football, but only the result is substantial. We won six games in a row. We were under a lot of pressure, we worked hard and we deserved it. I love this team, we are happy about what we have accomplished for this team," Sofian El Moudane admitted after the match, run a huge portion of kilometers in match again.
The home equalized the match after the corner kick from the 24th minute, and before we left for the half-time we managed to take back our lead. After a quick combination action, one of Nitra´s defenders sent the ball to his own goal. "The first half was really bad, we weren´t concentrated and we were lucky. After our first goal, the home was more dominant on the ball by the end of the half. The second half started better, we were more compact, more aggressive, and we managed to score the third goal. Nitra managed to scored to 3:2, played really well, but we were concentrated enough to keep the result and save in the league," said our midfielder Marko Tešija after win number six in a row.
Our road to three points was complicated in the first half by the injury of Jakub Krč, who had to withdraw from the game. Gabriel Dubois replaced him on the field before half-time "We entered the match well, after the first goal we stopped playing, we lost the game. It resulted in a first goal of Nitra. We managed to return to the match, helped us own goal of home team. The second half was balanced, we managed to score third. At the end of the match, Kóňa scored a home goal, but we are happy to keep the result. We are taking three points from Nitra, all enjoying rescue in the league. But it is necessary to continue and add victories in other matches," said Jakub Krč, player from our academy.
The winning goal of the match was scored thirteen minutes before the end by Eric Ramirez, when he escaped the home defenders for the second time in a match and scored second goal in the match. For the 20-year-old footballer it was already the fifth league goal after the winter arrival from Karviná. "First of all as always I want to thank god for the victory and the two goals, I’m very happy because we achieved our goal that was staying in the 1st division and making it two matches before the league finish is even better so I’m very happy for that, I want to thank all the group and everyone in the group for trusting me and was a pleasure for me helping the team to be in the fortuna league next season," said Eric Ramirez.
