While football fans in our country are waiting for the continuation of the competition in the Super League of Serbia, the players of Vojvodina are training at FC Vujadin Boškov and preparing for the upcoming game against Napredak. It will be the second match between these rivals in the current half-season, since Voša, in the second round, won in Kruševac by 0-2 this summer and thus announced good results in the continuation of the season.
However, that certainly does not mean that the red and whites will have an easy task against the popular Čarapani on Saturday. On the contrary, in Voša’s team they are aware that a difficult match awaits them, as evidenced by the words of the player, 24-year-old Miodrag Gemović.
– I think we can expect a tough and aggressive match, with many duels and struggle. What characterizes both teams is that they have fast side players in their squad, and I think that in this way both teams will try to overcome the opponent. As always, we will go for the win and I believe that it is finally time to play one good game at home, since we have not been giving our best in front of our fans lately – says Gemović.
In the past few days, Vojvodina players trained in incomplete squad, as four of them received invitations for the senior and U-21 Serbian national team.
– Invitations to national teams are confirmation of the quality of those players, but also an acknowledgment for Vojvodina Football Club itself. I do not think that their absence will reflect on our performance in the next round, because although they were not with us, they were still training and were in the competitive cycle, just as we were working at maximum intensity and preparing for the match ahead – notes Gemović.
At the beginning of this season, Vojvodina had phenomenal support from the stands at Karađorđe, and in the last round, the fans in enviable number supported the team in the away match in Šabac.
– I expect, and on this occasion, I invite our supporters to come to the game against Napredak, because it would really mean a lot for us players to boost ourselves a little after the slightly weaker performances in the last few rounds. It is much easier to play when you get support from the stands, which is why I hope that we will all celebrate together on Saturday – Gemović says.
When it comes to support, the Vojvodina’s winger especially emphasizes another fact.
– At virtually every training, our president Vojislav Gajić is present and gives us maximum support, which is truly for commendation, and I thank him publicly for this. It is certainly something that shows his attitude towards the club and us players, and thus gives us additional energy and impetus to fight even more on the pitch in order to achieve the best results – said Gemović.
The match between Vojvodina and Napredak will be played on Saturday at 6 pm at Karađorđe, and tickets will be available for free at the box office on match day. Also, for this match, last season’s season tickets of FK Vojvodina will also be valid.
