Florian vs Lafnitz by Goleador
Austria, Regionalliga Mitte (Central)
Gameday 23: Union St. Florian - SV Lafnitz
Both team are in contrary form at the time. Lafnitz has a four-win-streak on their side and Union St Florian only is 1-2-2 in the last five games. Before winter break Union St Florian was about to fight for third place and had much better opportunities than Lafnitz, but with a win here Lafnitz now could gain third place behind the dominant team Pasching and LASK Linz.
St. Florian with just one point out of the last two games. This point was gained with a draw vs. Allerheiligen. Here St Florian had great problems in the first 25 minutes and Allerheiligen scored the first goal of the game. Afterwards it was an open game with the better moments on St. Florians side and so playmaker Hötschl scored the equalising goal. And here I have to begin with the description of the game tomorrow. Playmaker Hötschl (MID/21/6/topscorer) is suspended after his fifth yellow card and important defender Hinterreiter (DEF/21/3) is missing after seeing a red card in the last game. This are two significant missings, as both are key players and scored together 9 of the 24 goals, which St Florian scored the whole season. Generally the coach only has 12 players from first team available on Saturday and the rest will be Junior players. One of the best of their juniors team, Doppelmaier, is also injured.
So this is a very hard situation for St Florian which Lafnitz wants to use. I don´t know about any missing on away side, but the team plays with a lot of self confidence and is one of the best in the league at the time. Also because of good transfers in the winter break (Described in an earlier pick from me: With Rodler and Zingl two player with Erste Liga experience are bringing more quality into the team. With Simek and Gluhak two Croatian defensive players from second Croation league were taken under contract to stabilise the defense and this is working really with Gluhak and Rodler as CBs in Defense.). In the last game the team showed moral as they were 0-2 in back in minute 85 and scored four goals in the last minutes and won 4-2. This also shows that the team doesn´t give up and wants to reach the 3rd place in Regionalliga Mitte.
