SV Mattersburg boss Franz Ponweiser has zero fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game with a completely injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: SKN St. Pölten
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group of players, there’s just the one fitness problem for the SKN St. Pölten gaffer Robert Ibertsberger to be concerned with. Kwang-ryong Pak (Elbow Injury) misses out for this game. Cory Burke cannot play in this game through suspension.
We’ve got the feeling that SKN St. Pölten should get enough chances to put one past this SV Mattersburg lineup, however it may not quite be as many as they’ll concede. We’re going for both teams to score in a 2-1 advantage for SV Mattersburg at the end of the match. There looks to be little in this one.
