Head coach Florian Kohfeldt has been handed a boost to his squad at both ends of the pitch ahead of Wednesday night’s home game against 1. FSV Mainz 05 (20:30 CEST). Niclas Füllkrug and Ludwig Augustinsson are “definitely fit” reported Kohfeldt at Tuesday afternoon’s pre-match press conference, with both players candidates to start against the Zerofivers.

“Niclas brings a level of quality that makes him a permanent fixture in the team when he’s fit. He’s a well-respected striker in the Bundesliga,” praised Kohfeldt. However, it remains to be seen whether Leonardo Bittencourt will be able to play following his enforced substitution early-on against Borussia Dortmund. “We’re going to do some further tests later on today,” explained the head coach. Bittencourt suffered a capsular injury in his left ankle during the defeat to last season’s runners-up.
