Against the “little Gladbachers”, the regional division Münster wants to show off again, claiming the seventh win in the eighth home game (Saturday, 2 pm, Hammer Straße). A surprise is planned …
Hildmann unpacks Møller. Prussia’s Danish phantom appears!
In any case, it is quite possible that William Møller (22) will be in the squad for the first time. The Danish striker moved to the Eagle Club at the beginning of October and was previously without a club for almost a year. His last competitive game for second division club FC Sydvest was exactly 392 (!) Days ago. In the 3-2 win against Dalum IF on November 9, 2019, Møller took the lead with a penalty. After that there was nothing to be seen of him.
Due to Corona, “Willi”, as his colleagues call him, has not yet been able to present himself to the Prussian fans. No chance of playing in the reserve – game operations are suspended. And no spectators are allowed during training either.
Otherwise the lapwing might have seen what now also prompts head coach Hildmann to nominate his squad: “Willi is fully involved in every unit and has gradually made the connection. And it just deserves to be part of it. “
Even if only as a “joker” on the bench. Hildmann on the massive attacker (1.93m): “He definitely knows where the goal is. Maybe we’ll let him play in the final phase.”
Also back after longer injury breaks: Joshua Holtby (24 / after a partial torn muscle) and Marcel Hoffmeier (21 / fiber tear). But they shouldn’t slip into the starting XI either. Hildmann: “A 90-minute exposure would come too early for both of them. We’d rather slowly, but surely, get them back on track. “
The fact is: Against Gladbach II, the Prussians expect a completely different task than the last one in the tired goalless kick against Wegberg-Beeck. The guests from the Lower Rhine are strong, technically adept and travel to Wiedenbrück with the confidence of a 4-0 away win during the week. Hildmann: “I am expecting an even game. Unlike Wegberg, Borussia will certainly not only focus on defending. “
Still counts for table 5. just a win. “We want to avoid slipping into midfield at all costs and instead win all of our games this year,” Munster’s head coach promises a hot final spurt that will not only include Gladbach but also Oberhausen (December 13), Aachen (December 16) and Schalke II (19.12.) Ready.
Veteran Dennis Daube (31) is no longer available for this. The ex-Bundesliga professional (including Union Berlin and St. Pauli) is still suffering from a severe bruised foot from the Dortmund game (0: 2) and has only just started walking again. Hildmann: “It won’t be anything before the winter break.”
It looks better with Osman Atilgan (21). The winger had to pause against Gladbach because of a hip contusion, but should – as of now – be able to participate again in Oberhausen a week later.
