There are still 4 rounds to play in the Admiral 2nd league in which Horn is relaxed with only 1 win (against relegation candidate Rapid Vienna Am) in the last 7 matches. Also, they have some absences like Hausjell (24/1), Schelle (20/1), and Bauer (1/0). Kapfenberg is the 4th strongest team in the league in the spring part of the season with 6 wins, 3 draws, and only 1 defeat from 10 games. Most recently they celebrated a home against Dornbirn, while in 2023 they only suffered a single defeat against BW Linz. They have steadily worked their way up the table under coach Ibrakovic and are now in 9th place with 30 points after falling last in the table with only 9 points. The guests are only +3 points from the relegation zone and will have the motive and ambition to take at least a point.
