Next Match: at home to Bayer Leverkusen, December 21
Werder Bremen coach Robin Dutt recognizes he is under pressure, but says he knows how to deal with it. Defeat to Hertha Berlin last weekend has set up the prospect of another relegation battle this season. "I'm not nervous on the inside," said Dutt. "I'm too experienced in my work for that." Nevertheless, he knows his side must turn the corner as the club prepares to post its worst first half to a season since 1974/75. For that to happen, he must improve a defense which has shipped 37 goals. "I've not yet got to grips with that," Dutt admitted. "That's our biggest obstacle."
