Zieler: There is time to turn it around

Hannover 96 goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler has warned his teammates to pull it together and quickly turn around a poor start to the season.

Die Roten suffered their fourth successive defeat after the 2-0 reverse away to FC Augsburg on Sunday.

The loss left them in 16th position with just one point from their opening five league games of the season and Zieler says it's about time Hannover pull themselves together and arrest the decline.

"It's incredibly annoying for me that we conceded the second goal so quickly after the first," he told the official German FA website.

"It obviously doesn't make our job any easier when we're playing away in Augsburg.

"Anyone can make a mistake, but we need to ensure that we keep them to a minimum. That's expected from every one of us.

"We still have enough games, but it's also clear that we need to slowly pull ourselves together and turn things around as quickly as possible."
