THE TEAM NEWS

ST. POLTEN

  • Coach Robert Ibertsberger was delighted with how his side performed in his first game in charge as they ran out comprehensive 0-5 winners away from home against a sorry Swarovski Tirol side.
  • St. Polten made a rapid start in that game and were 0-3 up after 15 minutes and Jamaican Cory Burke was the star of the show with a hat-trick on just his fourth appearance since his move from Portmore United.
  • Dominik Hofbauer is available for selection and is in contention to start but the coach will be tempted to line up with the same personnel that impressed so much midweek.

AUSTRIA WIEN

  • After a run of six successive draws in the Bundesliga, Austria Wien finally picked up all three points with a scrappy 1-0 win over Admira with a second-half Dominik Fitz strike good enough to take the spoils.
  • That win sees Austria Wien lead the Relegation Round standings and they will have designs on topping this stage come the end of the season although the focus at the moment will mainly be on putting as much distance as possible between them and the dotted line.
  • Coach Christian Ilzer has the same players available to him as in their midweek match and he is unlikely to make too many rotations after his side’s welcome victory.

THE PREDICTION

An intriguing clash awaits here between Relegation Round leaders Austria Wien and a St. Polten side who resumed their season with a bang midweek. The latter’s 0-5 win over strugglers Swarovski Tirol perhaps says as much about the quality of their opponent as it does about their own form but there is no denying that, in Cory Burke, they possess a dangerous striker in their ranks. He will be full of confidence after his midweek hat-trick and he could be the difference maker in this clash so backing the Jamaican to find the net again looks like a tempting option.
