First Team

“Josh Guilavogui is back in the squad”

Oliver Glasner is preparing his side for a high-intensity clash with north German rivals Werder Bremen.

Two wins on the road and two defeats at home – that’s the Wolves’ record since the Bundesliga resumption. Before Sunday’s visit to SV Werder Bremen (kick-off 13:30 CEST), Oliver Glasner spoke to the press about…

… the personnel situation: “Jerome Roussillon’s condition has improved considerably and I’m hopeful he can travel to Bremen. Whether he’s fit to play will be decided after the final training session. Josh Guilavogui has trained all week without any problems and will certainly be in the squad. Everyone else who’s been fit recently is available, apart from obviously Renato Steffen who’s suspended.”

… opponents Werder Bremen: “I don’t want to make judgements about why Bremen are so low down. All I can say is that they have a lot of pace in attack and assurance on the ball in midfield. The club also strengthened in January. We have respect for Werder and the quality in their team.”

... dead balls: “Set pieces are always a big thing for us. Recently it’s been working very well. We’ve been very dangerous at set plays and we want to use that as a weapon again at Bremen. Generally, we want to get back to the high level we’ve been playing at recently and show a good spirit on the pitch. Three points would really help us to stay in the top six.”

… the table: “In the Bundesliga, you can never infer anything from who’s above who. Bremen may have just lost against Frankfurt but before that they got results against Gladbach and at Freiburg. I’m expecting a hard-fought match and an opposing team who will play very aggressively and do everything they can to make life hard for us, which we need to be prepared for.”
