I de båda tidigare matcherna har Alvik till synes haft grepp om händelserna men Högsbo har trots allt dragit det längsta strået. Hemmalaget från Göteborg ligger på platsen bakom Alvik och slåss för att avancera i tabellen. Det kommer att bli en mycket tuff uppgift för Alvik att besegra Högsbo på bortaplan. Så här går tankarna hos Bernat Elias inför helgens kamp:
-We're gonna play an important game against Högsbo away, a good challenge for us. We want to beat them for 1st time this season and we have to do a much better job than the last time against them. We almost control big part of the game but we need to be more ready in the crucial moments of the game, defense hard and be consistent as a team, that's our goal for tomorrow.

You made a very good effort last weekend beating Trelleborg Pirates, what was the key to that important win?
-Yes, we beat Trelleborg in a complete game of us. We can say that the key to it was our level of defense in the 2nd quarter and also in the middle of 3rd period, that's made the difference to make stops and score a lot of points to get a big advantage against Trelleborg.

As a coach you must be pleased by the fact that Alvik scored more than 100 points, how was that possible?
-Yes, very happy with the performance last week. I think we did a great job, a lot of rebounds and assist as well. I want to point out Isak Lishajko, Simon Granado-Lindqvist and Emil Häglund - they played a great game

It is time to beat an opponent on the better half of the table, how should you play?
-It is time to show our character as a team, our desire to win against an opponent that beat us before during the season. We have to find our tempo and rhythm, with focus, energy and play tough all the time. If we can be at that level we are a difficult team to beat. We have to read what they propose in defense, run the floor, use our big men, share the ball in transition, attack hard the P&R, everything that we have worked on during the week.

What is the status of the team travelling to Gothenburg?
-Everybody is ready for playing except Anton Miller, he is out for the rest of the season unfortunately. Other players are ready to play.

The former Alvik-player Jacob Johansson is their leading scorer, how should you reduce his production? -He is doing a good season in Högsbo, shooting well, quick catch & shot player. We have to contest his shots, and stop him in 1on1 situations. It is important for us that he doesn't feel comfortable during the critical moments of the game. We have to put very much attention on him.
