Knapp’s Excellent Shot a Birthday Gift

Tomáš Peciar: “It was a last moment decision to follow Horváth‘s center. I must confess I hesitated.“

He celebrated his 33rd birthday on Monday. His first gift however came already on Saturday afternoon. One of the most experienced AS players Lubor Knapp presented it to himself in the form of an export shot in the game against ŽP Šport Podbrezová. This goal brought necessary patience in his team in an important game. “I must thank to Filip Hlohovský. He was the one who sent me an accurate pass so I could strike from a full run,“ the Czech veteran said after the game.

The experienced midfield in his Christ’s age belonged to the leaders of the team in the Saturday’s game. “I was quite exhausted at the end. It was abnormally hot. I am glad though that I can still keep up with my younger teammates,“ Knapp continued contentedly and disclosed: “I scored similarly in the training a week before and I said to myself then that I would probably not be able to repeat such a shot.“

In spite of the fans’ dissatisfaction with the beginning of the new season, the ex-captain believes that the start has not been so bad. We can only regret the second half against Púchov. We were clearly the better team. We did not keep the tactic plan though and that is why we failed. We disappointed our fans and that is what I am sorry about. Looking back at the game in Zlaté Moravce, I insist we were better again in spite of the loss.“

Knapp really enjoyed his wonderful goal. Right after he scored, he headed towards the fan sector. “I wanted to gee them up a little bit. It was all spontaneous. I am glad that they still come and support us,“ the player #9 added.“

Peciar struggled and decided

Tomáš Peciar who returned to the left defense after a two-game pause eventually scored the winning goal. “It was a last moment decision to follow Horváth‘s center. I must confess I hesitated, but I struggled and it was worthwhile,“ the player coming from Prievidza commented and added: “The header was not quite ideal, but the main thing is that it was a goal.“
