Union coach Urs Fischer: “The ball must go to the goal”

At the 1st FC Union, the employees hope that this is not a bad omen: On Thursday morning, the beautiful fir in front of the forest house in the stadium on the old forester fell the weatherpling to the victim. Hurricane Ylenia kinked the approximately 20 meter high plant in the middle. It had to be completely removed until the mini strain.

Fortunately, nobody was injured. The building, which gave the name used to the stadium used since 1920 over time and today is used as a office, remained unscathed. But the club made the loss of the fir, which was always decorated and enlightened to the turn of the year, already sad. After two games without a point and own hits at FC Augsburg (0: 2) and home against Borussia Dortmund (0: 3), the team should now take care of a sporty mood cheering.

Fisherman knows: “You can not force it too”

On the subject of goalkeeping was waved this week before the next game on Saturday (15.30, live! At employees hope) at Arminia Bielefeld. “You can not force it too. It’s an automatism that comes when you come in final positions. You have to have the conviction that make the right one,” said Trainer Urs Fischer. “It was important that we also had our possibilities in Augsburg and against Dortmund. Only we have hit the goal. The ball has to go to the gate. That was already a topic this week.”

In terms of puncto setup, despite the first absence of defensive chief Robin Knoche (5th warning) otherwise only good news. Further failures? Missing! Even with the actors of Corona players, follow-up remained. Thus, the defenders Dominique Heintz and Niko Gießelmann, replacement Torwart Jakob Busk as well as attackers and ex-armine Andreas Voglsammer are available.

Open Fischer, who replaces Knoche as a defensive chief. The choice is likely to fall on Heintz or Timo Baumgartl.
