Although the current eighth place matches initial expectations, the Szolnok MÁV NB III crew secretly wants to gain two more places by the end of the championship. In the first part of the remaining thirteen matches, coach Csaba Horvath's students want to prove it with their results.
The guard had been on the move for a week now, because they weren't going to leave anything to chance. The people of Tisza will finish the relatively good autumn performance with at least a similar performance in the spring, when they can already go to rest satisfied.
Given the current crop of players, their hopes couldn't be any bloodier than this, because a few quality footballers arrived in the summer to replace players who left before the tournament.
At that time, the team was filled with a lot of youngsters, a few of whom were being counted on by the professional management to play in the future. The greatest hope, Bento Mario, suffered a serious knee injury in one of the last rounds, and the coach wants to find a replacement for him during the preparatory matches. The talented young player underwent surgery at the end of November and is currently recovering, and the actual rehabilitation process can only begin next week for the left-sided defender.
Apart from him, all the players from the player base are available, almost certainly Gábor Antal, who spends the autumn season with the second division team AJCA. In addition to him, many footballers who grew up in Szolnok may visit the county seat in the coming weeks, but their signature remains the music of the future.
The team is training on artificial turf in Tizaligetti, which increases the possibility of injuries, but they hope to avoid the boys. However, a long preparation can also be an advantage, not only to improve physical fitness, but also to practice tactical elements. That will be handled by the coaching staff, whose members want to field a team capable of hitting the field in spring games as well.
