Falk: No room for error against FCM
Rasmus Falk says his F.C. Copenhagen teammates will be out to win Sunday's top-of-the-table clash with FC Midtjylland rather than play for a draw.
The Lions sit six points ahead of second-placed FCM with nine games of the season remaining.
Sunday's 6pm kick off is expected to be played out in front of more than 25,000 supporters in Parken Stadium.
FCK come into the tie on a seven-game winning streak, which includes last weekend's narrow 1-0 triumph at AaB.
And Falk says there is no consideration among the players about gunning for anything other than a win.
"Of course we're happy to be top of the league, but we're not content with that," says Falk.
"We don't have to be defensive in our mindset or our approach. We are going to win the match and win the Superliga's Championship Round."
Falk was named the Sueprliga's Player of the Month for March and was presented with the award before Sunday's victory in Aalborg. The playmaker has played all 90 minutes in each of FCK's last five matches – and he is eyeing further performance improvements before the end of the season.
"In terms of play, I still think we can deliver more," he says. "We have been solid and done well across the pitch, and we have kept our opponents away from big chances, but we have higher expectations for our offensive play and we have to create more there.
"On Sunday we start from scratch. You can't use previous results to predict what will happen here. We feel we are strong and we are looking forward to Sunday coming around."
As for the likelihood of another bumper crowd in Parken – including expected sell-out stands in Sektion 12 and the C Stand – Falk says: "It's fantastic and we'll need more of the support we've already got this season.
"Everyone in the squad is impressed and we're also a little surprised at how massive the backing has been.
"It has made a huge impression on us, and together we must create an atmosphere and a performance that we can be proud of on Sunday."
