Union without Doekhi against Köln, American striker Jordan should be ready

FC Union Berlin head-coach Urs Fischer supplied injury updates during his final pre-match presser on Saturday afternoon. 
Doekhi had captured the eye of many Bundesliga watchers after two very impressive performances in Fischer's starting XI over the last two rounds. The summer acquisition registered an notable assist in the 6-1 rout of Schalke and held his own in the 1-1 draw with German giants FC Bayer München.

Fischer may still have a serviceable replacement for his back three in the form of another heralded summer arrival, Portuguese defender Diego, whom the FCU gaffer proclaimed was once again fit. Other candidates who could serve alongside Robin Knoche and Paul Jaeckel include Polish central defender Tymoteusz Puchacz and potentially Norwegian wingback Julian Ryerson.

There should be plenty of good news insofar as Fischer's attack is concerned. Janik Haberer is once again available after taking last week off to witness the birth of his child. Fischer also declared that American striking sensation "Jordan" (as the forward sometimes referred to as "Jordan Pefok" or "Jordan Siebatcheu" now wishes to be called) has recovered from muscular problems.
