Rayan Raveloson has scored four goals in the last five games. Make hay while the sun shines and hand him the armband. He also gets a lot of points from his all-action display from the center of the park and returned a match-winning performance last time out.
Damir Kreilach could be pivotal if the visitors were to get anything from this game. He has five goals and an assist in the last ten games. He is very good in the air and always involved in set pieces.
Aaron Herrera could pay rich dividends for the risk-takers. He can deliver on both ends of the pitch. He has a goal and five assists this season from the right-back position.
