As for how things were going in his own squad, Kovac noted that a minor wave of sickness had permeated his camp. American winger Kevin Paredes - whom Kovac had regularly been turning to off the bench - will be unavailable due to cold-like symptoms. Polish attacker Jakub Kaminski - a starter in five of Wolfsburg's six fixtures since play resumed in the new calendar year - may also have to miss out.
Kovac dodged questions as to whether he planned to start the obvious candidate to replace Kaminski, want-away Egyptian forward Omar Marmoush, on the left flank. The gaffer noted that, with Lukas Nmecha's fitness levels steadily improving, he might start Nmecha alongside Jonas Wind in a double striker set.
