Hamburg (dpa / lno) - coach Timo Schultz from FC St. Pauli would like to gain the next triple point after the end of the series of victories and get down from the relegation places.

The opponent of Hamburg in the 2nd Bundesliga is Jahn Regensburg on Sunday (1.30 p.m. / Sky).

Schultz warned against the table-13.

«Jahn Regensburg is a very well-coordinated, compact and dynamic team.

This is an opponent who is very uncomfortable to play on.

It will be a good job for us, ”said the coach.

Last weekend, the Hamburg team achieved their second win of the season after 13 games without a win with a 3-2 win at Hannover 96.

Nevertheless, after 16 games this season, the club is penultimate with 13 points.

The gap to the non-relegation places is only one point.

"We have proven that we can step on the gas," said Schultz.

The North Germans continue to have to do without central defender James Lawrence due to injury.

"But he can start team training this week or next and then play," said Schultz.


Winter newcomer Eric Smith has to wait for his debut at FC St. Pauli.

«Eric lacks complete preparation.

He's capable of playing, but I'd like to have him on the pitch for the full 90 minutes.

That's why we prefer to do intensive training sessions with him instead of taking him to the game and using only six minutes, ”said the coach.
