Holding Out, Barely
Grilled's chances of progressing out of Group A in the Cup der Legenden got only slimmer, after they were defeated by VSV BackClose in the second round of fixtures. Given the Birds' last-gasp four-all draw against VSV Hinten Dicht last Monday despite a Chan Ze Han
brace, this meant that they would prop up the table with a single point to their name.
Still, Grilled's fate is arguably mostly in their own hands, and any win against Widukinds Enkel would put them through, as long as VSV BackClose fail to beat current leaders VSV Hinten Dicht. "If we're to take a dip, it might as well be now." Islom Davlatov
Head coach Hovaness Noubaryan
didn't forget to take what positives he could. "Well, we have Muthyala back now. Maybe we should have put him on earlier. Then again, there are bigger games coming up."
