Schalke coach Felix Magath has called on his team to get back to winning ways on Saturday, following their crucial defeat at the hands of fierce Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich last weekend.
Bayern clinched a 2-1 win in Gelsenkirchen to leap-frog his side to go top but, with an early kick-off against Hannover, the Blues have the chance to go back to the summit and keep the pressure on the Bavarians.
Speaking to reporters, Magath said: "Even though it is going to be tough, we want to win, also to get back to winning ways quickly after the Bayern defeat.
"We are not easy to play against when we are away and I hope my players realise how strong they can be on the road.
"I am confident that we will put in a good performance in Hannover."
