Stuttgart coach Bruno Labbadia wants his relegation-threatened side to right the wrongs of last weekend when they visit Cologne today.
Die Roten are just two points clear of the Bundesliga’s relegation zone after last weekend’s 4-2 defeat to Kaiserslautern ended their five-match unbeaten run, and Labaddia has called for an immediate response with just five games remaining in the 2010/11 campaign.
Labaddia said: “We have analysed the defeat to Kaiserslautern and trained during the week with a lot of concentration and intensively, and shown a good reaction.
“We travel to Cologne wanting to put into practice what we have worked on.
“With a win over Cologne we could also pull them into the relegation battle.”
Cologne will be hoping to bounce back from their own heavy loss last time out, a 5-1 hammering at the hands of bottom side Borussia Monchengladbach.
