'Gladbach without Reus at bottom side Augsburg

08 December 2011 01:16

Bundesliga dark-horses Borussia Moenchengladbach will be without injured winger Marco Reus for Saturday's clash at Augsburg as he continues his recovery from a broken toe.

The 22-year-old has scored 10 goals in 14 matches, but broke the little toe on his left foot a fortnight ago and is still not able to run without pain, forcing him to miss last Saturday's 1-1 draw with defending champions Dortmund.

With just three points separating the top four teams, third-placed 'Gladbach have the chance to go top of the table, for at least 24 hours, with leaders Bayern Munich at mid-table VfB Stuttgart and second-placed Dortmund at home to Kaiserslautern on Sunday.

Augsburg are bottom of the table with 11 points from 15 games, but 'Gladbach are the surprise package of the Bundesliga this season having become title-contenders after only narrowly avoiding relegation in May.
