Germany 3, Erfurt – VfL Osnabruck Osnabruck ah0 @ 1,87 SBO
I write yesterday on site pick against Erfurt because of their problems. They are 17th and they will have hard half season to stay in league. Tom Bertram (df 9/0), Smail Morabit (att 12/5, topscorer), Patrick Göbel (mf 4/1), Mario Fillinger, Bernd Rauw (df 12/0), Marius Strangl (mf 9/0) and Maik Baumgarten (mf 4/0) was all out for last game yesterday and for two days is new one. But that are not all problems for coach Schwartz, Kevin Möhwald (mf 22/2) and Marko Kopilas (df 6/0) get red card on that game and they are out for this one. In transfer window club left Marcus Rickert (gk 12/0) and Igor Jovanovic (3/0) and they brong Manuel Salz (Freiburg II, gk 7/0)
Osnabruck loose against Karlsruher 2-3 but still keep 1st place (they play with 10 players from 24 minute when goalkeeper Rickerts get red card, exactly same gk who come from Erfurt). He will be banned two games. All other players available and there are manny good players..
England » League One » Portsmouth – Colchester 2 @ 2,2
Portsmouth in big problems. They loose last 6 games, 15 games they didnt win, there are big financial problems, they have no nmoney, players are leaving..Pompey, who are in administration, lost six players earlier this month and most of the squad are on short-term deals.Brian Howard (mf 23/0), Lee Williamson (mf 22/0), Mustapha Dumbya (df 24/0), Lubomir Michalik (df 18/1), Paul Benson (att 7/2) and Jon Harley (df 23/1) are names which left club and last one is Darel Russell (mf 17/0). If we know situation from before it would be all clear for us no matter on opponents..
On 14th february they will know their future..
