PREVIEW: WEEKEND GERMAN ACTION
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
MATHEW WAGNER - Friday, March 22, 2013
Preston Zimmerman and Darmstadt will try to cement their safety position in a round of makeup matches in the German 3.Liga.

Hansa Rostock - SV Darmstadt 98

Preston Zimmerman and Darmstadt look to solidify their hold on the last safety spot against Rostock on Saturday.

The Lilies climbed out of the relegation zone last weekend with a surprise win over Osnabrück, although the team has played a match more than Babelsberg in 18th place.

A win over Rostock will put the pressure on the Stuttgarter Kickers and Babelsberg, both of whom are tied on points with Darmstadt.

Unlike Darmstadt, Rostock is falling fast. The team has lost seven of its last 10 matches and is just six points above the drop zone.

Darmstadt will be without Kacper Tatara, as he continues to recover from an operation. Leonhard Haas and Manfred Starke are out for Rostock because of a red card suspension and a Namibia national team callup.

Notes

Jerome Kiesewetter and Stuttgart's II match against Babelsberg was once again postponed due to unplayable field conditions.

Royal-Dominique Fennell is still out for the Stuttgarter Kickers with groin problems.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
