The pinstripes from Linz travel to Salzburg on Friday with a chance to get back in the race for first place in the Erste Liga.

Defender Shawn Barry can expect to see some playing time, after getting minutes in his past three games with the Linzers.

Last Friday's 1-1 final with SC Austria Lustenau brought the club to 12 points after seven games, a win away from their adversary and current runners up. RZ Pellets WAC/St. Andrä currently holds the lead with 16 points.

The players from Grödig are still trying to figure out how they fell 3-0 to recently promoted club Blau Weiß Linz last Friday. The loss put a screeching halt to their four-game win streak, including a win in the opening round of the Austrian Cup.

Neither squad is reporting major injury concerns, but Grödig's Stefan Lainer will serve a one-game suspension for getting sent off last week.


SCR Altach's new signee Seth Moses will begin training with the amateur team, which competes in the Vorarlbergliga.
