RONNIE SHABAN - Friday, October 4, 2013
Terrence Boyd and Rapid Vienna look to get back to winning ways this weekend when they visit SC Wiener Neustadt.

In their last Austria Bundesliga match Rapid saw a 2-0 lead erased by Wolfsberger AC and ended up losing 4-2.

In their Thursday match in the Europa League against FC Dynamo Kiev, it was their turn to comeback as they earned a 2-2 draw after falling behind two goals early.

Boyd played 90 minutes in both matches, but failed to get on the scoresheet.

Neustadt sit one point behind Rapid in seventh place in the Austria Bundesliga standings. Their last match was an embarrassing 8-1 loss to league leaders FC Red Bull Salzburg.

These two teams met in the second week of the season when the green and white came out big winners 4-0. Boyd scored twice in that match, as did his teammate Guido Burgstaller.

Burgstaller was injured in their match against Kiev. He will miss several weeks with torn ankle ligaments. Apart from that both teams will have healthy squads for Sunday's match.
