Winthertur is without wins in last five rounds, but in this run they met only one team that is not a contender for promotion, Chiasso ( 1-1 away draw), Today they miss two starting defenders, Schattin ( 12+9) and Lekaj ( def. 22+1), but since the lost of topscorer Castroman ( 10g), in last three rounds Schaffhausen scored only three goals, one was one own goal in 6-1 defeat with Servette and another in last match scored by Sessolo ( att. 4+3 1g) today banned.
Apart Castroman and Sessolo hosts are also without regular keeper Grasseler, already out in last six matches, Nickci ( att.2+6), Mendy ( def. 16+5), Dindomba ( att. 1+12) and Paulinho ( midf. 18+1). Not new missings, but recent ones and seems evident that hosts are suffering in this situation with only two points obtained in the eight matches after winter pause.
Hosts are now only four points over relegation, but also Winterthur has probably the last chance to remain in race for promotion playoff place, with three teams in the space of five points.
In spite of their recent bad run guests can win against a so poor opponent in my opinion.
