Falk looks ahead to Silkeborg showdown
Rasmus Falk says his F.C. Copenhagen team-mates must show courage when they take to the field against Silkeborg on Sunday as the Danish Superliga title race goes down to the wire.
FCK lead the league by just one point from FC Midtjylland, with both teams having just three games remaining.
The derby draw with Brøndby last weekend means FCK are now on a three-game winless streak. But Falk hopes a raucous home crowd can get behind the players on Wednesday.
"It is definitely an exciting match for everyone who follows the Superliga, and not least for everyone who supports F.C. Copenhagen," says Falk.
"Everyone knows what this is all about, and we have to go out and play with courage and a desire to show that we are the best team.
"We look forward to playing in Parken again, where we will do everything to give our fans a good experience. That comes first and foremost with a victory, but of course we would also like to show everyone a great display."
Silkeborg currently sit third in the table, having won each of their last six games. While they still feasibly catch FCK at the top, their priority is in finishing third, ahead of AaB, Randers and Brøndby.
Wednesday's visitors beat FCK 3-1 back in April. And Falk is wary of the threat Silkeborg will bring.
"Right now there are intense games everywhere. Things have to be decided in the final rounds (of the season)," says Falk.
"Our sole direction for the rest of the season is to have all our focus and energy on our next game and performance.
"Now it's all about being sharp on Wednesday night, and with Parken backing us, we're looking forward to it, even though we know it's not going to be easy."
"There may be periods of the match where Silkeborg are in possession of the ball, but we must be in control as a team, which will be tough.
"We fully acknowledge that Silkeborg have done well this season, and they have built up a strong unit over a long period of time, which is especially good at home - they're impressive.
"But having said that, we also have so much quality in our team that we must set the tone."
