Could Baumjohann be the difference against Bonnyrigg?


While Bonnyrigg endured a tough season in NSW – and were relegated from the NPL – they won’t die wondering against the Wanderers.

Having seen APIA Leichhardt eliminate Melbourne Victory last week, there’s some hope in the Eagles’ eyes that they could repeat the dose in front of what should be a big crowd at Marconi Stadium.

But the White Eagles may have to deal with a Wanderers side that will be a little sharper, they’ll also have to stop the likes of ex-Bayern Munich and Schalke playmaker Alexander Baumjohann. 


Babbel likes the creativity of the 31-year-old midfielder and has revealed he may give the German his debut in Wanderers’ colours. 

“If he’s [Baumjohann] playing well, he makes the difference,” Babbel said.

“It’s easier for the striker, for the wing players because he has the eye to play the right balls in the right situations.

“Then we will create many chances and hope we can score from these chances.

“We are prepared for this game. We watched some videos of them and they are a good side.

“We have to bring a good performance on the pitch…all respect to Bonnyrigg but if we do our job right, we’ll go to the next stage.”
