WEIZ VS. WOLFSBERGER AC  2-4  

Weiz last season played in Landesliga (4th league), now will play in regionalliga. And they are in problems for thsi game

WAC is Bundesliga team, they are on the end of preseason, their league starts next week (2 weeks earlier from regionalliga) and they are serious in this game

for Weiz:
“A new captain against the Bundesliga That’s really bitter, just before the big Cup Showdown against Bundesliga club WAC Markus Durlacher moved in a test game to a shoulder dislocation and could only be treated under general anesthesia. The team leader thus falls out on Friday – as well as replacement captain Rupert Hopfer, who is on vacation. The loop will therefore take over goalkeeper Sascha Harrer. “The WAC is the clear favorite, but we want our skin to sell as dearly as possible,” says Weiz coach Uwe Hölzl. “It’s nice when you get so attractive lot in the cup.” Behind the use of Christian Friedl is still a question mark. The defensive man suffered in May a scaphoid fracture”

 Scottish Cup, Aberdeen – Motherwell

Aberdeen boss laments his ‘worst injury crisis’ ahead of cup tie

Aberdeen boss Craig Brown has labelled the current situation at Pittodrie as the “worst injury crisis” of his career.

The Dons face Motherwell in the fourth round at Pittodrie with doubts over Ryan Fraser, Chris Clark, Jonny Hayes, Isaac Osbourne and Gavin Rae.

Gary Naysmith, Stephen Hughes, Ryan Jack and Rob Milsom remain out.

Brown said: “It is the worst injury crisis I have had to deal with.

“John Sharp and David Wylie tell me that it is the worst injury situation they have seen at the club.

“There is a queue outside the treatment room. I am jealous when I hear other teams being able to field the same team again.

“We can only keep our fingers crossed and hope the lads we call upon, guys like (Joe) Shaughnessy, (Cammy) Smith, (Jamie) Masson, who I thought all did well the other night, can come in and do a job again.

“These guys have to take the chance when it comes along and I thought Joe was a good example of a player who did that.

“We also have the likes of Jordon Brown and Declan McManus who are bursting at the seams to get their opportunity.

“I think it would be difficult though to put them all on at the same time. As long as they are surrounded by good experienced players then I think we can cope.”

The two sides met in the quarter-finals last season with Motherwell unbeaten in four games at Pittodrie.

Former ‘Well boss Brown said: “Against Motherwell we will have to compete in the midfield area. They are very strong in there.

“Their ability to pass the ball is probably the best in the SPL. So I don’t underestimate the task ahead but I am still optimistic we can do what we did in the cup last year.

“I am still optimistic we can do that in spite of the depleted resources.”

FA Cup, Milton Keynes Dons v AFC Wimbledon

AFC Wimbledon’s leading goalscorer Byron Harrison is back from injury to spearhead the Dons’ attack at Stadium mk.

Harrison, with eight goals to his name, is available for selection for tomorrow’s FA Cup second round clash along with a host of names finally climbing off the treatment table.

Pim Balkestein, out since mid-September, and Mat Mitchel-King, who has struggled since returning in the FA Cup replay against York City, took part in a reserve game on Tuesday night. Both are available for the Franchise clash – although lack of match fitness may keep them out.

Luke Moore is also back in first team training after recovering from a knee injury and is available for selection.

Meanwhile, Rashid Yussuff, Sammy Moore, Jason Prior, Warren Cummings and Brendan Kiernan are nearing a return to action.

Stoke – Newcastle

Double blow for Newcastle 

Newcastle have received a double injury blow with the news that bot Yohan Cabaye and Steven Taylor will be out of action until February.
Cabaye, who picked up his groin injury while on international duty, will have to undergo a second operation while it is a hamstring injury which will keep Steven Taylor out of action. Taylor picked up the injury against Southampton at the weekend.

Speaking about the news, manager Alan Pardew said
“He’s cursing his luck a little, but unfortunately for Steven, his record is that he does pick up injuries. Maybe the fact that we have had to call upon him more than perhaps we would like with the injuries and Colo’s [Fabricio Coloccini’s] suspension has probably compounded the issue.
“He’s [Cabaye] had one side of his groin done and that caused a potential weakness in the other side, so that needs to be done,” added Pardew.
“That will be done, I think, on Tuesday or Wednesday and he will probably be out for eight weeks.
“We are probably looking at 1 February for both him and Steven, so we might as well get the bad news out of the way, because that’s what it is, and just focus on what is important, and that’s what we have got left.”
