A big setback was not 1: 3 defeat in Heidenheim for Christoph Dabrowski. “This is not a leg break,” says the coach of Hannover 96. “It was a damper, part of the process in which we are stuck. The team is self-critical and disappointed that we lost this game.”
Since Tuesday 96 has returned to the descent ranks after the victory of the SV Sandhausen in Karlsruhe again. Four counters separate the traditional club only from the relegation platz 16, which is currently occupied Fortuna Dusseldorf. “We were not saved yet, since day one of my activity has printed on the boiler,” says Dabrowski, who became successor to Jan Zimmermann at the end of November. “In the end we have a great goal and that is to stay in the league.”
To get closer to this goal, a win on Sunday (13.30 clock) in the home game against Darmstadt 98 would be quite helpful. The leadership has reached a 0: 5 home defeat last weekend against HSV. “I do not know what the high defeat of the Darmstadt made against Hamburg with the team,” says Dabrowski. “The knowledge is simple and not new: the 2nd league is crazy.”
Börner back with it
Personnel looks better again in the warehouse of Hanoverian: Center Defense Julian Börner has set up his yellow lock and can run on Sunday. “I’m glad Julian is back. He will give us stability,” says the coach. Belongs will continue to be central Luka Krajnc (calving injury) and right-back was Muroya (tap injury).
