Week’s Work Thwarted

Lubor Knapp: “We had been preparing for their breaks for the whole week.“

Second home game of AS in the new season and another one against a newcomer. Vladimír Koník’s team did however not play well again. While the game against Dolný Kubín had a happy ending, the prestigious duel against Púchov took them two points after an unexpected draw (2:2). “We are disappointed about it. We have to be winning at home,“ said one of the most experienced home players Lubor Knapp.

Púchov did not play extremely well. The two successful break situations were almost everything they showed. Performance of the home team seems a bit confusing in this context though. “We had been preparing for their breaks for the whole week. They scored twice this way in Zlaté Moravce and so they did against us. Two breaks – two goals,“ the former captain says about the unsuccessful game.

In spite of the unfavorable development, I think the game was in our hands. “We put pressure on them and also had some scoring chances at the beginning. They took the lead very soon, but our response came quickly, too. We still had enough time to win the game. We also missed some luck. The more we tried, the less successful we were. Their defense was very good in the second half. Our combinations as well as the long balls or shooting were ineffective,” Knapp commented.

Several mistakes of the whole team resulted in both goals in Dalibor Rožník’s net. The experienced midfield confirms it: “It is absolutely necessary to stop breaks as soon as possible. When we fail to do that in the middle, it becomes extremely difficult in front of the penalty area. We will definitely analyze both situations. I hope the number of such mistakes will be decreasing.”

The new duo of key midfielders directing the team was created just before the start of the season. Knapp was supplemented by Vojtech Horváth. “Béla is a very good player. I hope our cooperation will get better. We are still not completely coordinated although it is not so bad,“ Knapp concluded.
