DAVID SMITH - Friday, September 30, 2011
Linz return home to host the country's oldest team, and look to nab points in their chase to return to the Austrian Bundesliga.
Although used as a substitute in last week's game against Blau-Weiss Linz, American defender Shawn Barry can expect to see some playing time in coach Walter Schachner's eleven.
On the Linz side of the field, Brazilian newcomer Luiz Henrique will have to sit out after having picked up a red card in last Friday's 1-1 draw with their crosstown rivals. Goal-scorer Harald Unverdorben will also sit out after picking up a yellow card in the same game.
Vienna are coming off a vital 2-0 win against Austria Lustenau, which keeps them hovering five points above the league minnows FC Lustenau.
As for the Viennese, Andreas Tiffner's knee and Nicolas Dvoracek's tendon will keep them out of coach Frank Schinkel's lineup.
LASK slipped out of Vienna the last time they met with a 1-0 win, in which Ulrich Winkler made the difference.
