Hartberg vs St. Polten by Snake
After the renewal of the championship in March , Hartberg lost 5 games and finished even in the 6-th - 0:0 against current leaders Lustenau at home.
However in the 5 games when they suffered defeat , Hartberg were totally outplayed and with such play they will most certanly relegate.
The home side also have the worst attacking force in the league with just 20 goals scored.
There are even more bad news for tonight - central defender Tauschmann (24/2) is suspended. There are also 2 other important defender missing for a couple of games - Huber (15/0) and Vukajlovic (21/0). Serious problems in defence for Hartberg and with their poor attacking force i can't see how they can snatch more than a point here.
St.Polten were candidates for promotion before the winter break , but after the renewal they showed totally diffrent face.
4 defeats , 2 draws and only 1 victory move them to 4-th place in the standings. There were some humiliating defeats as one against Kapfenberg at home with 1:7.
On Friday they end the bad run and gain their first victory for 2013 after beat BW Linz at home with 2:1. Hartberg and BW Linz are 2 very similar teams and in my opinion , Polten will be able to beat them tonight. They will be with full squad and with the problems that Hartberg are having in defence i back the visitors here.
Looking at the H2H , both teams have faced each other 13 times. Hartberg have won only on one occasion, while St.Polten have won 8 times.
