Adler sidelined for Gladbach clash

14 February 2013 15:16

Hamburg goalkeeper Rene Adler is set to miss Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Borussia Moenchengladbach with an abdominal injury.

Manager Thorsten Fink said although the injury is only minor, he is not willing to play Adler and risk further damage.

"Rene has fallen to 90 percent from 95 percent," Fink told Bild.

"He felt a sharp pain. We don't want to take any chances. It is an abdominal muscle strain, but it is not torn yet.

"If that happens we lose Rene for three or four weeks. It is a risk we do not want to take."

Following Hamburg's terrific 4-1 win at Dortmund last weekend, Adler's injury has got progressively worse, and he missed training on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Jaroslav Drobny will replace Adler in the side on Saturday for what will be his first league appearance of the season.

And although Adler has been the obvious first-choice this season, Fink has plenty of faith in 33-year-old Drobny.

He added: "I have the greatest confidence in Drobny. He will do the right things when called upon."

Hamburg sit in seventh place in the Bundesliga table, just one point ahead of Moenchengladbach.
