Two games without a goal, only seven in the entire Hinrunde - not the numbers the Werder attack had in mind, especially not Josh Sargent. The USA international scored against Hertha BSC in the 2-2 draw, but has since been waiting for his fourth goal of the season. "It's really frustrating for us a team, we want to create a lot of chances, but it's just not working for us at the moment," said Sargent. "But we won't let it get us down."

This coming Saturday the boys will play bottom of the table Paderborn, in a game where the ball has to hit the back of the net for Werder. Is it a real 'Do or Die' game for you? "Absolutely," said Sargent. "We have to win." Werder could go level on points with Fortuna if they win, with Düsseldorf having to play second-placed Dortmund in their game. "We know how much is riding on this game," said the American.

Sargent was injured for the reverse fixture against Paderborn, but now he's back and he wants nothing more than to help his team avoid the drop. "No one at this club wants to go down. This club has such a long history, and no one wants to that the team or the city down. We'll fight until the end to ensure that that doesn't happen."
