North Rhine-Westphalia: Arminia in crisis: "Catastrophic false start"

Bielefeld (dpa / lnw) - There was no lack of self-criticism at Arminia Bielefeld after the third defeat in the third second division game. "We have to accept the task in this league. We were too far away on the second ball today and often only came second," said defender Bastian Oczipka after the 2-1 draw at Hansa Rostock on Saturday evening. "It's not our aim to appear like this here." 1: 2 at SV Sandhausen, 0: 3 against Jahn Regensburg and now the defeat at the Baltic Sea: This is not how the East Westphalians had imagined their start after relegation.

"For me personally, this is a catastrophic false start, I've never experienced that in my career," said new coach Uli Forte. "The biggest construction site is in the mind. It will now be even more important to get into the players' minds."

A difficult home game is on the agenda for next Saturday. The opponent on the Alm is then Hamburger SV and thus the big favorite for promotion in the 2nd Bundesliga. Defender Frederik Jäkel knows how serious the sporting situation is. "Three games, three defeats, that can't happen to us," said the 21-year-old. "We have to step it up a notch against HSV. It can't go on like this, we know that ourselves."
