FRIDAY, WE’RE IN LOVE
With the 2016/17 season entering its defining phase, Ewald Lienen's side have developed a new love for Friday games just at the right time. How appropriate, then, that FC Heidenheim guest at the Millerntor tomorrow evening (kick-off: 1830 CET), when the Boys in Brown will attempt to secure their third win in a row on a Friday evening.
LIENEN HAILS COMMITMENT OF PLAYERS
Two days before the visit of FC Heidenheim (kick-off: 1830 CET) Ewald Lienen took time out to speak to the Hamburg media. The 63-year-old began by commenting on the injury situation before turning his attention to Friday's opponents.
LATE FLOURISH SEES OFF DÜSSELDORF 3-1
St. Pauli won 3-1 at Fortuna Düsseldorf on Friday evening to secure three crucial points in the battle for second division survival. In a furious finish with two sendings-off for the home side, Andre Hoffmann put Fortuna ahead before goals from Philipp Ziereis, Christopher Buchtmann and Aziz Bouhaddouz turned it round for Ewald Lienen's men.
BOYS IN BROWN AIM TO EXTEND RUN AT DÜSSELDORF
St. Pauli go to Fortuna Düsseldorf on Friday evening (kick-off: 1830 CET) looking to extend their positive run and, after the recent victories over Nürnberg and Würzburg, collect more points in the battle against the drop. In Fortuna, they meet a side who have been sucked into the relegation mire after a good start to the campaign.
BOUHADDOUZ: "WE WERE WORTH THE WIN"
What a finish! A performance full of fight and passion and a late Buchtmann goal handed the Boys in Brown victory over Kickers Würzburg and another three points after last week's win at Nürnberg. Little wonder, then, that the mood in the camp was one of elation after the match. Here are the soundbites from the mixed zone.
