Rode's return from knee surgery certainly serves as welcome news for the club. Whether or not Rode can displace newcomer Kristijan Jakic in midfield remains to be seen. The six-partnership of Jakic and Djibril Sow has gelled in recent weeks. Head-coach Oliver Glasner has also been using Australian international Adjin Hrustic as a late-match sub in midfield.
"It's a very nice feeling to return to the team circle," Rode said on Wednesday, "Everything worked well in training. Now I just hope that I can keep at it."
Jakic and Hrustic's place in the team aside, Glasner has a need for midweek a squad rotations in the Europa League weeks ahead.
