Drawing 0-0 with Paderborn the last time around, the team has managed to imbed in place a set of fruitful and promising results, showings which make for promising viewing for their ardent supporters.
And they’ll be striving to emulate the same defensive resilience and fortitude come their latest outing in the league today.
