With Cheikou Dieng, coach Karl Daxbacher has an alternative for the Wacker attack in the squad. Dedic and Harrer are fit for the second home game of the still young season against St. Pölten.
Innsbruck – Wacker Innsbruck welcomes the team of the hour in the Bundesliga in the fourth round with St. Pölten. Tyrol coach Karl Daxbacher paid respect to his former club for the current form: “Compared to the previous season they have practically ushered in a new era, but our victory has also given us the conviction that we can keep up in the league.”
His counterpart is relying on his proven concept to expand his series of seven season-over-season competitive games without defeat. “It’s no secret, we have to do what all clubs have to do: Show the same willingness as in the games before,” Dietmar Kühbauer stressed.

Heart of the defensive at St. Pölten
With the victory in the Westderby in Altach the week before, the Tyroleans have written for the first time. The key to their success was a strengthened defensive. Daxbacher also saw this as the heart of his opponent. “They played against LASK and Sturm in a new system with a five-string chain, that is their recipe for success.”
Daxbacher did not want to rule out the possibility of a “standing race” in view of this initial situation. “It could be a waiting game. An early goal would make the game more attractive.”
Kühbauer contradicted this. “We always want to play offensively. Just because the defence is good doesn’t mean you can’t play offensively,” said the 47-year-old, who referred to six goals scored by his team in the first three rounds. “If we keep that average, I’d be very happy.”
Dedic and Harrer fit again
Under no circumstances will St. Pölten – where only Taxiarchis Fountas fails with an inflammation in his hand – “wait tenth in the back. We need at least one goal to be able to win,” the Burgenlander tried simple mathematics.
With Cheikhou Dieng, Daxbacher has an old acquaintance at his disposal for the first time. The work permit for the Senegalese, who had already stormed St. Pölten under the 65-year-old, arrived at Tivoli on Thursday. Whether the 24-year-old would already be a topic for the match against St. Pölten, Daxbacher could not estimate. “He’ll definitely be in the squad, but he has very little playing practice.” “Sir Karl” can plan ahead with Zlatko Dedic and Martin Harrer, who each had to miss a training session during the week.
