Ghanaian youngster Baba Abdul Rahman is in line to make his first Bundesliga start for Greuther Furth on Saturday following the suspension of regular left-back Heinrich Schmidtgal.
Schmidtgal has picked up five yellow cards and will not be available for selection against Freiburg.
The Kazakh International has also put up some poor performances and that has necessitated a change for a new performer.
Rahman’s speed and ball skills should make him seal a permanent place in the starting line-up.
“I’m ready,” the 18-year-old said after Thursday’s training session.
The former Asante Kotoko player has already made two substitute appearances for the Greuther Furth who are at the foot of the table.
