Nurnberg have won one and lost two of their first three games of the season and Hecking does not believe that is a true reflection of his side's ability and form.
Therefore, he is counting on three points against Augsburg on Saturday to set the record straight.
"I am very happy with the start we have made to the season as far as the performances are concerned, but I am not happy with the points we have got," he said.
"We have analysed our game against Dortmund and my team was great at gaining possession. We want to do that against Augsburg too."
The two sides last met 15 months ago when Nurnberg held the upper hand in a two-legged play-off match which saved them from relegation and denied their neighbours a maiden ascendancy to the top flight.
Augsburg gained automatic promotion 12 months later, however, and are now searching for their first win in the top flight after two draws and a defeat.
"We just need to carry on working so well and then we will be rewarded," said their coach Jos Luhukay after last weekend's 2-0 defeat to Hoffenheim.
Augsburg warmed up for Saturday's trip with another Bavarian derby against Bayern Munich's reserves, which they were also unable to win as they threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2.
Luhukay was unable to take a closer look at full-back Paul Verhaegh, who faces a two-month lay-off after picking up a knee injury.
The hosts have the same squad as they did a week ago in Dortmund with the addition of Tomas Pekhart, who has recovered from a knee injury.
However, Mike Frantz is still out and regular number one Raphael Schafer faces a two-month break due to injury.
