Zbrojovka Training for Jan. 16 Restart
FC Zbrojovka had several bright spots during the fall campaign, but the team is still in the relegation zone of the Fortuna Liga standings and they will have to fight to maintain their place in the country’s top league.
First the bright spots of the fall campaign:
– A point in the standings after a tie against league-leading Slavia Praha in Prague in late November;
– Two goals in the final minutes to beat Morvian rival 1. FC Slovacko, 2-1, in mid-December; and
– The team is still alive in the MOL Cup.
Now the reality for the spring campaign:
The team, which is back in the top league after two seasons in the lower league, is 2-3-9 with nine points and in 16th place in the standings, just three points from dead last.
The team is currently in Malta to train for the spring part of the season. The first game will be at Mladá Boleslav on Jan. 16 at 2 p.m.
