The week ahead

Training, cup derby and league clash

The past week has been packed with big matches – and things are continuing thick and fast. We are to start a double Austria week - first in the UNIQA ÖFB Cup, then in Lustenau.

  • Monday: Our boys were busy training yesterday and are back on the pitch at 15:30 CEST. Gerhard Struber and one player have an earlier start with a Mixed Zone for the press from 14:00.
  • Tuesday: Another training session is scheduled at 11:00 before our boys go to Grödig in the evening. Our Red Bulls are facing SV Austria Salzburg on the edge of our city with a sell-out crowd expected and a spot for the UNIQA ÖFB Cup at stake. It will start under the lights at 20:45.
  • Wednesday: After what we hope will be a successful night in the cup, our coach is to gather his proteges on the training pitch at 10:30, with the team having the rest of the day off.
  • Thursday: The training schedule will be the same as Wednesday, with no need to adjust the alarm clock.
  • Friday: Amar Dedic & Co are to fine tune at 13:00 CEST (behind closed doors) ahead of the ADMIRAL Bundesliga encounter in the far western tip in Austria.
  • Saturday: MATCHDAY! We are away in the ninth Austrian Bundesliga gameweek at Austria Lustenau. The match against the side bottom of the league is to start at 17:00.
  • Sunday: Hard work turns you into winners - after the morning session (10:30 CEST) in Taxham there will be one or two players in front of the television though seeing who our boys are drawn against in the UNIQA ÖFB Cup last 16. If everything goes well on Tuesday, our name will be in the hat when the ties are determined as part of the ADMIRAL Bundesliga am Sonntag programme on ORF.
