A long bus drive for our Canaries tonight to Kortrijk.
Coach Hollerbach and his players travel already tonight to Kortrijk where they'll stay in a hotel. A tough trip for any team in the Jupiler Pro League. But the field of Kortrijk is no excuses for Aboubakary Koita. "Other teams complain also about our pitch when they come, we don't want to do that. We can't use this as an excuse. We'll go their to try to bring the 3 points at home", said the young winger.
The Kerels are not in the best shape at the moment. In 2022, they have not won a single game in 5 matches. "Indeed, they couldn't get a win in their last games, but they are still a very dangerous team and they will surely want to turn things around", said Coach Hollerbach in the press conference today.
For STVV, the last game against Charleroi was difficult to swallow. A lot of chances were created but none converted. Our number 14, 'Abou', hit the post two times during the game. "I want to help the team in any way I can, whether it's goals or assist or defensively. I hope that on Saturday, the luck will be on our side." declared Koita.
The Yellow and Blue staff can count on their three new recruits, Kagawa, Al-Dakhil and Klauss, who are all eligible to play. "They integrated quite well within the team. They all three gave a good impression to the group and I hope that they will have an impact on the team as well.", commented Abou. Whether they will play on Saturday or not will be decided by the Coach, then. Wait and see!
Unfortunately, the away fans are still not allowed. Support from home Binkies!
Kick-off at 16.15 tomorrow on Eleven Sports!
