Schalke’s coach Dimitrios Grammozis does not unduly refers to the development of recent weeks these days: From the most recent eight games, his team lost only one – in Dusseldorf (1: 2), but won four. “A win more,” he says with a view of the “too many” draw (3) during this period, “and the starting position now would be another.” Schalke would not be fifth, but as a fourth right on the FC St. Pauli on the relegation place – and in direct stroke distance to leaders Bremen.

After threesome in Rostock follow three victories in a piece
However, the past can not be changed for Grammozis and his team. And so the look goes forward: The home game against Hansa Rostock should form the prelude of a winning streak – that’s the wish of the royal blue, which the first leg is still in memory. At that time, the S04 won 2-0 in Rostock and then won the following Games against Ingolstadt (3: 0), Hannover (1: 0) and Dresden (3: 0), marriage in the league a 0: 1 defeat in Heidenheim finished the run. It was at that time the longest winning streak of the Schalke this season – and is still today.
“It would be important if you come in a rhythm, three, four games in succession wins and making soil well,” says Grammozis, who basically sees his team on the right track, but limits: “We were mostly well d1. But if we had the chance to get a tick further up, we did not get the victory. ” Like last at Karlsruher SC (1: 1).

Also Simon Terodde, the Schalke Topstürmer, was not hidden. “Before the Karlsruhe game we felt the winner of the game day, then we left two points,” he says and complements with a view of the coming weeks: “We now have games in front of the chest, which are extremely important to me.” The attacker puts value in particular on the home matches. You are elementary in ascent race, especially with a view to the probably further rising audience numbers. We have to be in a situation in May, where we play 60,000 fans and have the chance to pack. “
An early launching winning streak would certainly increase this chance significantly.
