Hesse: Darmstadt 98 has to do without Schnellhardt for weeks

Darmstadt (dpa/lhe) - SV Darmstadt 98, unbeaten in nine games, wants to continue its successful streak in the 2nd Bundesliga in the top game against Fortuna Düsseldorf. However, coach Torsten Lieberknecht has to do without Fabian Schnellhardt on Saturday (1 p.m. / Sky). The midfielder suffered a partial tear of the outer ligament in his knee and will be out for several weeks, Lieberknecht announced on Thursday.

In addition to Schnellhardt, he still has to do without Klaus Gjasula (torn muscle bundle), Mathias Honsak (back problems), Oscar Vilhelmsson (ankle) and Alexander Brunst (Corona) against the fourth in the table. Otherwise all players can be used. "With all the games in October, we will definitely need everyone. The boys who are not playing that much at the moment know that their time will come," said Lieberknecht.

He approaches the game against the strong Rhinelanders with anticipation and respect. "I'm expecting a strong opponent in Fortuna. They have a squad that's also extremely well-stocked across the board. Düsseldorf has quality and can definitely have a say in the promotion race this year," said Lieberknecht.

A plus point is likely to be the return of the spectators to the main grandstand, some of which can be occupied again after the stadium has been renovated. "I'm looking forward to the fans sitting behind me. I'm sure I'll get a tip or two during the game," said Lieberknecht. "Overall I'm really looking forward to there being a few more spectators in the stadium."
