There are only two rounds left until the end of the Fortuna I liga matches. After that, some teams will fight in the playoffs for promotion to the Ekstraklasa. Arka Gdynia players are still fighting for this opportunity. On Friday, the yellow and blue will host ŁKS Łódź. Without a doubt, it will be the thirty-third strike. The leader of the table will come to Tri-City, who will want to seal a direct promotion to the elite.
On the other hand, the hosts need to win to keep their chance of playing in the playoffs. Most importantly, not everything depends on Ryszard Wieczorek’s team. Arka has the same number of points as the sixth Stal Rzeszów, which, however, has a better balance in head-to-head clashes than Gdynia. So Yellow and Blue must win both matches, as well as count on one more stumble of their rivals. In the final series of matches Arca will play away from Bruk-Bet Termalica Nieciecza. Stal is still waiting for confrontations with GKS Tychy (away) and with Skra Częstochowa (at home).
For Chewback, it could be the “last dance”
Gdynia depends on the form of their striker. Karol Chuback has already scored 21 goals this season, including 5 assists. The 23-year-old is the leader in the scoring charts. However, he cannot be confident in the crown, because only one goal less than Luis Fernandez from Wisla Krakow.
And at Thursday’s press conference, the Arca forward came in an oversized T-shirt emblazoned with “Jordan.” Then he put on a sweatshirt. It so happens that Friday’s clash with the ŁKS may be the “last dance” in Gdynia for Çupak. This is the yellow and blue’s last home game of the season. Even if the Arce can advance to the play-offs, they will have away matches in them. The lack of promotion to the Ekstraklasa could mean the departure of Czubak, who will certainly not be able to complain about the lack of offers. Although his contract with FC Gdynia is valid until June 30, 2024 and he has an option to extend it for another season, it is likely that these weeks will be the striker’s last in Arca.
“Honestly, I didn’t think about it. Not before this game, not before. I know there are chances, but I try to put them aside because I’m here and we’re still up for something. Since I came here, I try to give 100 percent. Sometimes It’s better, sometimes a little worse, but I’m focused on playing Ark. Only after the season is over, I’ll wonder what happens next, now I want to do my best for ŁKS and in the last game, because we still play for something. The situation was Similar to a year ago, we were in a slightly different place because we were playing for direct promotion, now in the playoffs. We are all optimistic that we will rise to them, and then thanks to them we will be promoted to the Ekstraklasa,” Czubak said.
In Gdynia he found effectiveness and love
This season, the 23-year-old has been impressing with his efficiency, although it cannot be denied that he has also missed several chances. Perhaps if he had used it, he would not have played in ark for so long. In Gdynia, he definitely feels good, in 68 matches so far he has scored 35 goals and given 8 assists. In Gdynia, the footballer found not only efficiency, but also love. He met his fiancée in this city and admitted that he would like to settle in Gedden in the future. He loves to walk by the sea, so the best case scenario for him is to upgrade Arka to Ekstraklasa. Then he will not have to worry about his future. Especially since he is one of the favorites of Gdynia fans.
The King of Archers crown is at your fingertips
How does the fact that he is the leader of the points classification affect him? “Before the season, I never set myself a certain number of goals because I’ve never done that. I just wanted to score as many as I could in every game. I think I can do it this season because I’ve already proven that I can do it. It seems to me that the King of Shooters crown is something Extra and motivation to work harder. I constantly stress that the team is important to me because I came here with the intention of promotion. I failed last year, and now I really want to make it, because I haven’t made my Ekstraklasa debut yet, even though I’m 23 A year already – he confirms.
– I must confess that I would like to do it here, for I feel good in the ark. I’ve rebuilt myself after a difficult season in Łódź, and I feel a lot of support from all sides, from the fans, staff and colleagues. It definitely gives me extra motivation and the goals give me a lot of confidence on the field. In addition, peace of mind, because even if I don’t take advantage of a situation, I know that in this or the next match I will put the ball into the net, – adds the football player.
On Friday, Arca needs a win, a draw is enough for the Lodz team to secure promotion. In the first match between these teams, ŁKS won at home 3:1. The paradox is that Gdynia is one of the weakest teams in the league in terms of home matches. However, given the points scored away from home, it is unparalleled.
