With just one goal scored and four defeats, many have already started to write off the league newcomers, but Lieberknecht is not going to be so hasty.
"We're going to try to lift ourselves above Nurnberg, and we've also prepared well for this," he said at a press conference.
"In the past two weeks, we've analysed a lot and the defeats have not been down to the system we've played, but individual mistakes.
"My lads now have to show courage and make a few brave passes, and I am convinced that this courage, combined with good tactics, can earn us our first points."
Nurnberg already have two points, yet they like their hosts are still waiting for the first win of the campaign.
To boost their chances of getting it tomorrow, they have signed Japan captain Makoto Hasebe from Wolfsburg, and he is in line for his Nurnberg debut at the Eintracht Stadion.
"He's going to improve us," predicted coach Michael Wiesinger, who will name the midfielder in his starting XI even if he has only seen him in training a handful of times.
Having a new recruit does not mean all of Nurnberg's problems will automatically be resolved, though, and Wiesinger is aware that his side must now start to deliver the points.
"We're always under pressure, no matter where we are in the table," he said. "We know what our duty is tomorrow."
Wiesinger is without the suspended Javier Pinola while Hiroshi Kiyotake is a doubt with a dead leg.
"Marvin Plattenhardt will probably take Pinola's place while Adam Hlousek has a chance of starting too," revealed Wiesinger. "Maybe both of them will start."
Marcel Correia is ruled out of the reckoning for Braunschweig while the game comes too soon for Torsten Oehrl and Matthias Henn.
