Heidenheim (dpa / lsw) - 1. FC Heidenheim can make it as good as perfect to stay in the 2nd Bundesliga in the catch-up game at SC Paderborn on Tuesday (6.30 p.m. / Sky).

The eighth table is currently twelve points ahead of the relegation place.

“It is now the case that there is not enough for the front, you couldn't expect that either.

But we're too good for the relegation battle, ”said FCH coach Frank Schmidt on Monday.

Nevertheless, the 47-year-old demanded: “We can't sit back now.

We are now in the secure midfield.

That might sound boring to the outside world, but it isn't to us. "

The coach may have to do without the ailing Dzenis Burnic, Marnon Busch and Denis Thomalla in Paderborn.

Burnic and Busch had already missed the 2-1 away win in Osnabrück, Thomalla injured his head in a collision in this game.

The game in Paderborn was canceled at the beginning of February due to the heavy snowfall in East Westphalia.
