BBC coburg has rather unpleasant memories of the cramped sports hall in the sweep pit in wurzburg. After all, it was here on the 15. April of this year the sportive relegation from the prob with a 78:90-loss against a team of mainfranken, which was strengthened with several bundesliga-double-licensed players.
A good five months later, the coburg team will start its second chance in germany’s third-highest division at this very venue on saturday at 8 p.M. On closer inspection, however, not much of the historical significance remains, because the faces of both teams have changed more or less significantly since then, both on and off the pitch.
Upheaval in wurzburg
On the side of the hosts, eric detlev is a new head coach in charge. The 42-year-old came from the fraport skyliners frankfurt and is considered an expert for the development of young talents.
With the US-americans miles jackson-cartwright and garrett jackson as well as the german center-hopes leon kratzer and dejan kovacevic, the four best point-getters of the previous season have all left the untermain. But the upper franconians should by no means underestimate the young wurzburg bundesliga reserve team. At least captain julian albus, an experienced first-division winger, is still part of the team. The distance-throwing specialist was a decisive factor in the aforementioned fateful game in april with six goals from auben. "Last season it was four tough games against coburg, and that will certainly be the case again this year", says albus: "i rate coburg stronger than last season."
Wurzburg’s co-coach sepehr tarrah has a similar view: "coburg are very strong and deep, they play forward quickly and look for an early finish. Therefore a lot will depend on our team defense."
Albus is joined by dexter sienko, an enormously versatile u.S. Forward who can operate close to the boards but also exude danger from a distance. The german youth internationals badu buck (will probably be absent due to injury), philipp hadenfeldt and fynn fischer, who is still known to the BBC from his time at MTSV schwabing, complete a highly talented squad.
Franceschi and krause questionable
As reported, there have also been some changes at the BBC during the summer break. However, coach ulf schabacker is worried about two of his new signings before the start of the season: while kevin franceschi is struggling with hoof problems, three-man specialist daniel krause dislocated his back for the second time in a short time during training last week. Both are questionable for the league premiere.
Nevertheless, the veststadter go optimistically into the frankenderby. "A successful start will give us the momentum for the coming games. If we get the necessary intensity on the field, something can be possible", BBC coach ulf schabacker emphasizes. The support of the loyal fans of coburg is of great importance. Departure of the BBC fan bus is on saturday at 5 p.M.30 o’clock at the HUK-arena. Those who come to the meeting point on short notice have a good chance of getting a place.
