More on Darmstadt

Torsten Lieberknecht has rung the changes, with Thomas Isherwood and Klaus Gjasula dropping into his back three. With all of Aaron Seydel, Luca Pfeiffer and Oscar Vilhelmsson starting, it looks like Tim Skarke will be asked to deputise at right wing-back once again.

More on Heidenheim

Recent USMNT cap Lennard Maloney has shaken off an ankle injury to start at the base of Heidenheim's midfield. He's covered a league-high 158km this season. Jan-Niklas Beste, a fellow former Borussia Dortmund player, goes in search of his 10th direct goal-involvement this season.

Schmidt's view of Darmstadt

"It'll be an even and intense game. Darmstadt have a lot of tall players. We need to throw ourselves into the challenges. We have a little cushion [on the relegation zone], but it's not much. We need to take our chances."

Lieberknecht's view of Heidenheim

"We know Heidenheim well from all our meetings in Bundesliga 2. They're a team that fights hard and runs hard. In addition to their physicality, Heidenheim also have good footballers in their ranks. Our matches against each other were always tight and and hard-fought. We're happy that we're now deservedly playing against them in the Bundesliga and can battle for points."

Home comforts

Heidenheim have picked up all but one of their 11 points this season at home, and could go three home matches unbeaten for the first time in their Bundesliga history.
