In the 1: 2 bankruptcy in Heidenheim, Fortuna’s bad luck with injuries escalated. On the Tuesday after that, a whole eleven were missing from training (BILD reported). Including all three center forwards and three central defenders.

Daniel Thioune (48) is not to be envied when it comes to the personal puzzle. Yesterday only 11 field players from the professional squad were fit!

At least that’s what the defense is for, because Thioune sees Klarer – namely Christoph Klarer (22).

The “tall one”, as his teammates call him, returned to training earlier this week after suffering a knee problem. Most recently he was only number three central defender, had to line up behind captain Andre Hoffmann (29/) and Jordy de Wijs (27). Now he will probably form the defensive duo with Tim Oberdorf (25) against Rostock in the arena on Saturday (8.30 p.m. / Sky).

Oberdorf started the season well, but lost his place on the right flank to Matthias Zimmermann (30). Back left Nicolas Gavory (27) should be fit in time. He ran a few laps around the field for the first time yesterday after suffering a rib problem.

On the other hand, big concerns in attack: There is hope for Dawid Kownacki (25/cold), but Rouwen Hennings (35/muscular problems) is in danger of missing. Daniel Ginczek (31/torn tendon) will be out until 2023.

So the chance for Emmanuel Iyoha (26). Sports director Christian Weber (38): “Emma was a big topic weeks ago. It was rumored that he should go or be traded with other clubs. We said clearly: we build on Emma, ​​believe in the potential he has.” Now he is needed…

And not just him – Weber continues: “The boys, who haven’t had much playing time lately, now have the opportunity to do self-promotion.” Despite the precarious lack of personnel, the sporting director is optimistic: “We’ll put a more than competitive squad on the pitch at the weekend. I am convinced that we have enough quality to compensate for the losses. We want to win the game and build on our home streak.”

Hendrix hopes

After a concussion at 1: 2 in Heidenheim, Jorrit Hendrix (27) was back on the pitch on Wednesday and did a few laps. The doctors had previously given him the okay after a further examination. Whether the Dutchman can be back against Rostock is still open.
