Augsburg striker Florian Niederlechner blames lack of crowd for missing penalty and hits out at ‘crappy ghost games’ – The Sun

AUGSBURG striker Florian Niederlechner blamed his weekend penalty miss on a lack of crowd noise.

The German fluffed the chance to put his side ahead against Cologne on Sunday and moaned about the "crappy ghost games" after the match.

The game eventually finished 1-1 thanks to Philipp Max's last gasp equaliser after Anthony Modeste had put the away side 1-0 up on 85 minutes.

But Niederlechner had the opportunity to give his team the lead after just 27 minutes but his spot-kick was saved by Timo Horn.

As the 29-year-old was preparing to take the pen, one of Cologne's defenders told Horn which way he likes to shoot which the striker claims affected his decision making.
