Silkeborg preview: Finishing the season with a smile

While Silkeborg's form in the league is hardly a reason for content since they have only managed to win once since October, their fans are certainly ecstatic at the moment since Silkeborg are new Danish Cup winners. Their win over Aarhus in the Cup final saw them lift the trophy for the second time in the team's history and secured Silkeborg a place in the Europa League for next season.

Meanwhile, Fredrik Carlsen and Alexander Busch are both in the team's injury list and doubtful for this match.
