Comment of the Holger OSIECK(Team-Manager)
We will have series of games starting from today and today’s game was an important one. I am very happy that we were able to earn 3 points at this starting game.
From my point of view, we were able to play well in the first half and succeeded in scoring goals. However, we were not able to dominate the second half. That was conspicuous in the last 10 minutes. However, we scored our 4th goal within that time and earned the victory.
I am very satisfied with the 3 points from this away game.
In addition, we should not forget that the kick-off time of today’s game was 2 pm. It is uncommon to have a game from 2 pm at this time of the season. I think players had a hard time adapting to this unusual environment. They must have felt exceptionally tired.
