SpVgg Unterhaching sees the Saturday game in Chemnitz as an overture to the English Week. It is important to lay a foundation in the ascent race.
Unterhaching - After the last game had taken place on Friday evening, SpVgg Unterhaching had more time than usual until the next appearance in the 3rd division. Unfortunately. Because you don't like going into a longer break than usual with a negative experience. The 0: 1 bankruptcy in the derby against Bayern II even hurt the Hachinger twice. "The mood was not so good, you lose a derby very, very reluctantly," said SpVgg coach Claus Schromm. For the away game at Chemnitzer FC on Saturday (2 p.m.), incidentally the only conqueror of second-round primus FC Bayern in the second half of the season, it can be hoped that the defeat will have no effect. Because in the 3rd league the decisive weeks now begin.
The plan to be up there in March has so far worked for the Unterhachingen thanks to the reliable slips of the competition. Now, however, a pioneering phase is compressed at the door. Four games within 14 days are on the program. The SpVgg has to run three times abroad with relegation candidates (Chemnitz, Großaspach and Münster), and on Tuesday of the English Week (March 17) there is the home game against promotion competitor Ingolstadt. Not the hardest program on paper, but what does that mean for a crazy league this season? "Everything is possible," believes Schromm, "maybe we are still at the front, maybe we are three points behind and are only eight." The table picture can change completely in the next two weeks. But it is also clear for Haching's coach: Whoever holds himself harmless in the coming phase and possibly ends March with three wins will definitely have a say in the ascent: "Whoever wins a nine in the English week is definitely massively ahead doing it. "
The SpVgg wants to deliver a successful overture before the English Week in Chemnitz. "It's getting closer and closer, now the hot games are coming," captain Marc Endres looks ahead.
SpVgg: Mantl - Bandowski, Endres, Greger, Winkler - Stahl, Fuchs - J. Müller, Hufnagel, Bigalke - Stroh-Engel.
