THE TEAM NEWS

HOLSTEIN KIEL

  • Holstein Kiel parted company with coach Andre Schubert, who was only appointed in the summer, following last Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Heidenheim.
  • Ole Werner has been placed in interim charge and he will have to check on the fitness of Daniel Hanslik, who missed the trip to Heidenheim with a knock.
  • Kiel have not had a settled defence so far this season and there could be changes at the back again, with Werner having plenty of options across the back four.

Predicted line-up (4-3-2-1): Reimann; Ignjovski, Neumann, Wahl, Van den Bergh; Meffert, Ozcan, Muhling; Lee Jae-Sung, Baku; Serra

Unavailable: Dehm (Injured), Sander (Injured)

Doubtful: Hanslik (Injured)

HANNOVER 96

  • Hannover 96 boss Mirko Slomka is already under pressure following a disappointing start to the campaign, his side collecting just five points from a possible 18.
  • New signing Dennis Aogo went straight into the starting line-up in last Saturday's defeat to Arminia Bielefeld while fellow new arrival Marc Stendera was an unused substitute.
  • Waldemar Anton is suspended for this one after being sent off against Bielefeld while Sebastian Jung, Timo Hubers and Linton Maina continued their recoveries from injury.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Zieler; Korb, Franke, Felipe, Horn; Aogo, Bakalorz, Prib; Muslija, Weydandt, Hansson

Unavailable: Hubers (Injured), Maina (Injured), Jung (Injured), Anton (Suspended)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Holstein Kiel will be hoping a change of coach can kick-start their season, although their home form is not actually that bad. They are unbeaten at the Holstein-Stadion this term and are slight favourites against a Hannover side who have won just one of their last 21 away games in all competitions.
