Prague – The hockey players of Hradec Králové will go to Friday’s 41st extra-league round in the role of the competition leader. They will defend the leading position in Prague against the home Sparta. Třinec is returning to the action by two points after the quarantine, but so far only for one match due to other positive results of coronavirus tests. The steelworkers will compete with the last Zlín. The match in Pilsen, where Liberec will present itself, will offer a duel of teams that did not succeed in the last matches.
After three wins, Sparta hesitated for the last time with České Budějovice. Since the beginning of October, three consecutive matches have been the maximum in which the people of Prague managed to succeed. “We made stupid mistakes and showed poor performance. If we knew what we had to improve, we would definitely change it immediately. Unfortunately, the mistakes are still the same for us. We have to say something about it and finally get up. “It’s just not possible,” said forward Miroslav Forman.
The team playing in the role of guest has succeeded in mutual matches four times in a row, three of them this season. Hradec Králové thus has something to return to the locals. Even in light of the 3: 8 debacle at the end of November. He will introduce himself in the metropolis as an extra-league leader.
“It’s nice, but we can’t look at it much. Besides, Třinec didn’t play. We have to focus on each match and fly into each match one hundred percent. Of course, our plan and goal for the rest of the basic part is to keep the position in the top four.” said defender Richard Nedomlel. “It will be difficult against Sparta. You can’t look at where they are in the table, because they have an incredibly good staff and we have to prepare well for that,” he added.
Třinec will play the first match after a week’s quarantine, during which he lost his leading position in the extra league. It will not be in full force against Zlín, as Wednesday’s tests, necessary for leaving the isolation, revealed a positive finding of several other players and members of the implementation team, who were negative on 5 January. However, the last team in the table refused to postpone the match, so the Steelmakers will start the match after ten days with a training gap.
“But we were in contact with our fitness trainer during the quarantine, he sent us training plans. Whoever needed it, the club lent him bikes and exercise equipment. Everyone who felt good kept themselves at home so that it would not be for the body when they returned to the ice. such a shock, “said the Hrinec striker Erik Hrňa. Both teams share 53 points in the table, but the last mutual duel was surprisingly won by Zlín.
The rams remain at the bottom of the table and their shortfall on the penultimate Kladno has risen again to six points. In addition, the knights have a struggle for good. And the last third of the basic part will start on Friday round. “Those matches are shortening very fast, I’ve never experienced that,” admitted goalkeeper Libor Kašík. But his team managed to torment the favorite considerably in the season. In addition to the home win 2: 1 in overtime, the Zlín team lost just 1: 2 in Třinec. “We have to be mentally strong, resilient and keep fighting,” Kašík urged.
The fourth Pilsen lost three times in a row. The last time the Indians came out empty on the ice of Vítkovice (2: 4). “Unfortunately, we buried ourselves again, for about the third match. We again had a lot of exclusions and especially unnecessary ones,” said forward Jan Schleiss on the club’s website. “It’s a pity that things like that happen. We keep saying it – we have to learn from it and play it better next time,” Schleiss added.
After a very successful period, Liberec has not even succeeded in the last four matches. The last was the completion of the 29th round in České Budějovice (4: 5). “We gave a very bad performance, for which I have a hard time finding words,” said coach Patrik Augusta.
Mladá Boleslav collects points significantly more at home than in rivals’ arenas. On Sunday, the skaters lost outside in Hradec Králové for the fourth time in a row. They will try to get closer to the top four against Karlovy Vary, which owns 13th place and is thus outside the twelve clubs that will be involved in the elimination battle for the title. In the mutual duels of the season, the team playing at home always took all the points.
The battles between Pardubice and Kladno, on the other hand, dragged on in both cases. In the third table, Dynamo first won at home 4: 3 after the raids and then on the ice of the opponent in Chomutov 5: 4 in overtime. The Pardubice team will go to the match on a wave of three wins, while the Knights, on the other hand, cut a series of three defeats against Olomouc (2: 0).
Litvínov’s match with České Budějovice was postponed due to positive findings of the covid-19 disease in the South Bohemian cadre.
