To end the continuous slide of TTC RhönSprudel Fulda-Maberzell in the Table Tennis Bundesliga (TTBL), the management of TTC is looking up to Quadri Aruna to end the drop in the league.
After losing three consecutive matches against Neu-Ulm, Schwalbe-Berneustadt and Ochsenhausen at home, TTC will host visiting Post SV Mühlhausen in the Wilmingtonhalle at home on Sunday January 3, 2021.
Clau-Dieter Schad, Vice President of the TTC considers their visitors an easy prey but warned that Aruna and his mates should not be complacent but end their slide at home.
“Even if they are not quite as good in the table, they are a strong opponent. We’ll have to get everything,” Schad warned.
According to Schad, TTC were complacent in the last few games, and they failed to win against the top opponents despite good performances to suffer three defeats in a row at the end of the year.
“It’s of course annoying that we weren’t able to take one or two wins from the games, but it also showed that the path we were taking is the right one,” said Schad.
With German international Ruwen Filus and Aruna in their best form at present, Schad is confident the Nigerian can deliver the team.
With Aruna yet to get used to the league, Schad said: “That is why it is right that we do not raise the targets too early, but I am convinced that he (Aruna) will go a step further.”
In readiness for the tie against Mühlhausen, the memory of the unfortunate 1-3 loss away to the visitors is still fresh in the memory of TTC but optimism prevails before the game.
“We are optimistic and want to start the New Year with a sense of achievement,” says Schad.
