"The group is getting larger, that's good news," said Peter Stöger, who is factoring Manuel Akanji into his plans for Sunday's derby. Lukasz Piszczek will be available too, despite having had to miss a day of training.

"He had some minor issues, but by the weekend he'll be fine to play," said Stöger of Piszczek. Meanwhile, Andrey Yarmolenko has come through the week without any problems, meaning he will feature in the squad and can offer another option going forward. (br)
