Match Preview – Příbram vs. Sparta
We won six of last seven league matches in Příbram with score 12-1. Last game with no points for us is dated more than 13 years ago. This time we have to handle it after two defeats and without booked Kanga and Stanciu.
”We have to show our strength to the Spartan fans and solve our problems after it,” said head coach Zdeněk Ščasný before the match. ”It’s important to win and get three points for us, but I don’t think it would be an apology for the first part of the season,” added Martin Frýdek, who is coming back after missing the last game because of four yellow cards.
