"We have increased the point loss after the match with Slovásko. I looked at the table and it's not a nice view. We have to do everything to make it better. There are just two matches before the winter and we will try to handle it," said midfielder Lukáš Vácha, which could be in starting eleven because Martin Frýdek and Guélor Kanga are booked.
