Dusseldorf vs Greuther Furth Preview

Greuther Furth are on the road again and their coach Mike Buskens is not just happy to be travelling because he is visiting the city of his birth.

Football News: Greuther Furth.

Both of Furth's Bundesliga wins have come on their travels this season, which is all the more reason for Buskens to look forward to a trip to Fortuna Dusseldorf, where he hopes to get what he set out for in the reverse fixture.

"We wanted to win our first home game of the season when we played Dusseldorf, but it didn't work out for us," he said.

"We had high hopes for that game after picking up four points from our first four games, which was good since we had started with real crackers against Bayern Munich and Schalke.

"There were plenty of games in which we have been able to hold our own, yet we have not been rewarded for our efforts, which is why we have dropped a few points along the way."

Furth have picked up just three points from their first four games of 2013, which is why they need a win now more than ever.

"When I see the work we are doing every day in training, and then have the Schalke game in my mind, then I am very optimistic that we are not far away", Buskens added on Fortuna's official website.

"Fortuna are not that far away from where they wanted to be this season either.

"As a newly-promoted side, back in the big time after an absence of 15 years, their one and only target is to avoid relegation back to the second division."

Forty points is usually the target for such clubs, and a win on Saturday would take them to 27 points with 12 games of the season remaining, more importantly maintaining at least an eight-point cushion over the relegation zone.
