As newly-promoted Bundesliga side SV Darmstadt 98 prepare to square off against their promoted-colleagues 1. FC Heidenheim on Saturday afternoon, Darmstadt trainer Torsten Lieberknecht revealed that he has additional injury problems at his Thursday presser
SV trainer Torsten Lieberknecht revealed that Nürnberger had suffered an ankle injury in training during his Thursday presser. Bader had been attempting a comeback after issues with his hip kept him out of last week's encounter. Lieberknecht noted that the 26-year-old's recovery trajectory likely only rendered him an option next week against Wolfsburg.
Darmstadt have now gone five league rounds without a win. Frank Schmidt's Heidenheim have secured three league victories to Darmstadt's two thus far this season and lie two points ahead of the Hessians in the Bundesliga table. A home win for Heidenheim on Saturday can send Schmidt's Albogen club well above the relegation pack.
