Away match against the bottom club

Hi friends,

we intended to continue our good performance from the match against Köln to beat Mainz in last weekend's home match. Unfortunately, we couldn't achieve this goal at all regarding the first half and therefore we were one down at halftime. After the coach harangued we also motivated ourselves again and swore to show our true face. Deservedly, we equalized through Davids goal in the 83rd minute. However, we conceded the 1:2 inexplicably just two minutes later. I'm really sorry for our fans that we couldn't show them the performance they would have deserved for their support!

I will try my best to get the necessary self confidence back in the next match against Borussia Mönchengladbach and to put table-toppers Borussia Dortmund a spoke in their wheels. We already played Mönchengladbach twice during this season. In October we won the away match 3:2 and just before Christmas we reached the quarter-finals due to our 2:0 success.

The statistics as well as the current standings in the table are clear indicators for us but I know exactly from my experience that those matches are most of the time hard-fought and that is why we have to give everything to claim the points.

Wish me luck!
