Peciar’s ‘Roundabout’ and Hlohovský’s Excellent Passes in Prievidza

AS players with roots in Prievidza successful in the known surroundings.

AS Trenčín played their last away game of the fall part in Prievidza. They have gained 10 points altogether at the rivals’ stadiums – for the draw in Rimavská Sobota and for the wins in Michalovce, Lučenec, and Prievidza. The last game was the one with the highest number of goals.

The four-goal portion was started by Juraj Križko’s fortunate free kick. “I agree it was a fortunate goal. The ball deflected from the wall which confused the goalie,“ the former forward describes his second season’s strike. His team could play much more patiently afterwards which was very important in the extreme conditions. “The weather was terrible and it had a bad impact on quality of the pitch. Our strategy was to play simply in the back and to keep the ball in the front as much as possible. Prievidza’s defense was much more complicated and they were making a lot of mistakes,“ the first scorer of the game compares the performance of both teams. “The pitch was horrible, that is true. We knew it was not going to be about football but more about the fighting spirit. Nevertheless, in spite of the unfavorable climatic conditions, we were clearly the better team. We suited our strategy to the weather conditions. We did not combine a lot. We were trying long passes behind their defenders instead and that was the right choice,“ Lubor Knapp added his opinion. Petr Kaspřák, on the other hand, felt comfortably on the snowy pitch. “I had no problems with the surface. Perhaps I am one of the few players who like conditions like these.“

It was an extraordinary game for the natives of Prievidza raised by the home football team Filip Hlohovský and Tomáš Peciar. The forward who has scored nine times in this season did not add another hit. “I was at home. I wanted to score. But the three points we gained are much more important. Each game in Prievidza is very specific for me. I am sorry that we could not play better on this difficult surface,” Hlohovský regrets. His excellent and surprising passes made a lot of problems to the home defense. Tomáš Peciar also showed a very good performance with a lot of fancy pieces. Especially his ‘roundabout’ with the home players Kubík and Guľa was wonderful (see it also in the video footage from the game). “Excellent! I enjoyed the moment,” Peciar says and adds in a more serious tone; “To win against my former club is always twice as valuable for me. My parents, grandparents, and many other relatives and friends were among the spectators including my girl friend.“

Another man who showed an interesting performance in Prievidza was Roman Gergel who scored twice. There are seven goals now in his goal account. My objective before the season was to score ten times. “I have never been a great striker. I will therefore not change this plan. Maybe, when I eventually reach this goal, I will set another one,“ Gergel evaluates his scoring plans. Aldo Báez, on the other hand, did not score his opening season’s goal; “It was a difficult game. I am glad that we managed it. I even had a good chance to score. Unfortunately, I was not able to convert it. This time,” smiling he describes the situation from the 51st minute when the home goalkeeper just send forth his good shot and Kaspřák scored conveniently.
