Before the home game against Schöningen, the situation at Rotenburger is really tense. They are in a series of 5 winless matches (including the friendly against Holstein Kiel) and are placed in the relegation zone with only 1 win after 6 rounds. An additional problem is the long list of absences such as Tarek Flohr (6/0), Alexander Arnhold (5/2), Erik Köhler (5/1), Peter Bolm (5/0), Max Buschermöhle (3/0), Jesse Ortiz (3/0), Lamine Diop (2/0), and Marcello Muniz. Coach Eberbach said that they don’t have many options and are lack of quality. Schöningen strengthened themselves in the summer with ex-second division striker Christian Beck (Magdeburg), and second top scorer last season in Regionalliga Nordost. They entered in top form with 3 victories in a row, and are only 1 point away from the leader Bersenbruck. This is an ideal chance to use these problems in Rotenburger and continue the winning streak.
