Success in Lučenec Thanks to the Opening and Final Offensive Activities

Ivan Galád; "An important 270-minute game ahead.“

The match in Lučenec was extremely important for the team from Trenčín. A failure would have once again underlined the inability of AS to gain points away of the home stadium. Instead, it seems after the Saturday’s triumph that our team is on the right track to get rid of this bad reputation. AS has gained seven points at the competitors’ stadiums yet. It is two more than for instance Inter has. The leaders of this statistics – Rimavská Sobota, Lučenec, and Šaľa have each however only gained three more.

We had thoroughly analyzed our rival before this game. We wanted to come up with something unusual. “We knew, we had been closely observed by the coach of Lučenec. That was why we tried to surprise them by our lineup. I noticed during the warm-up that he reacted and that he was giving new instructions to his players. The game itself showed that our tactical plan was right. We scored already in the very beginning. Later we were doing everything for a successful result,” Ivan Galád evaluates the team’s performance. Gergel’s new role in the offense was probably the most surprising moment. The U21 national player scored his fifth season’s goal already in the 2nd minute. As time went on however, the creative player was feeling worse and worse. “Roman indicated some health problems so we had to substitute him,” the coach explained his choice.

The players from Trenčín inflicted their first hit already in the very early seconds of the game. Then they mainly focused on their defensive tasks. In spite of that, they were able to score again – at the end of the game. “We knew that we would grow better in the later phases of the game because our physical parameters had substantially improved. We proved it by the second goal as well as by the chances of Kaspřák in the last 10-minute period,“ Galád appreciates the physical preparedness of his team. The second goal was probably the best moment of the game. Filip Lukšík got the ball in our own half, drove it all the way to the penalty area and scored uncompromisingly. The coach was very pleased to see the way AS was reached their second success. “Filip did not score by chance. We had trained situations like this. He did exactly the same in a prep game during the week. It was an amazing goal, but the most important fact for me was that we were able to create two more chances in spite of the two-goal lead,“ the coach emphasized the team’s activity in the final 10-minute period of the game.

After the winning duel against Inter, Trenčín succeeded in another difficult game. The coach knows however that the most difficult games are still ahead. “It is going to be the most difficult game of the fall part. It is going to be an unusual, 270-minute, maybe even 300-minute (together with the overtime) game. That is how I see the last three rounds. We started preparing for them already on the Sunday’s training. The games against Rimavská Sobota, Prievidza, and Šaľa will indicate a lot. It is a key game series. I would not like to break it into particular episodes. When we want to spend the winter break in a good atmosphere, we have to manage the whole final block,” concluded Ivan Galád.
