Trouble quartet must save Fortuna!

THIS is your chance!

Fortuna will probably have to do without 13 professionals against Rostock on Saturday (8.30 p.m. / Sky and SPORT1) and only has eleven healthy field players available (BILD reported). But that also means that some who have had to sit on the bench for the past few weeks, or even all of this season so far, are coming into play.

Shinta Appelkamp (21), Michal Karbownik (21), Emmanuel Iyoha (24) and Nana Ampomah (26) have recently only made short appearances, now at least three of them will be in the starting XI – and the substitute should also have a lot of playing time as a first alternative to get.

Coach Daniel Thioune (48): “Many players in the squad still have room for improvement. Maybe I’ll get to see more of one or the other against Rostock.”

Problem child Appelkamp

► Appelkamp was a regular in the first six compulsory games – although he rarely convinced. Thioune held on to him, before the 4-0 gala against Regensburg the U21 national player had to be on the bench after all and then only had 14 minutes of play in Heidenheim (1: 2). He should have his big break this season – but he’s still a long way from that. Appelkamp has a special duty against Rostock.

Problem child Karbownik

► Karbownik came to Düsseldorf on loan from Brighton in the summer, but has apparently not yet convinced Thioune. With two mini missions he only gets 12 minutes of play. After all: Karbownik recently played through against Lippstadt (3-1) in the U23s, showing that he is fit. It will be interesting how he copes with the robust Rostock game.

Problem child Iyoha

► With Iyoha, as so often in his career, it was injuries that threw him back. That’s why he’s only been on the pitch for 14 minutes so far. After finally scoring his first Fortuna goal last season, he wanted to hit the ground running. Iyoha wants to start against Rostock – the question is whether in the starting XI or coming from the bench.

problem child Ampomah

► Iyoha is arguing with Ampomah for the last place in the starting XI. The second most expensive Düsseldorf purchase of all time (3 million) has recommended itself via the U23, put together a brace there against Lippstadt and played through. Thioune: “He raised his finger. Nana has now earned his time with us.”

Now he and the three other Fortuna stars from the worry quartet have to show that too.
