SV Werder Bremen coach Viktor Skripnik is hoping Anthony Ujah can replicate his goalscoring feat against Cologne in Tuesday's DFB Pokal Cup at the Weser Stadion.
Ujah, who was one of the 10 Werder players that trained separately indoors at the Weser Stadion ahead of the fixture on Monday, scored a brace against Mainz last Saturday as the Green Whites ended their five-game winless run just as he ended his goal drought of five games.
"I'm very happy that we have Ujah. He's an important player at Werder and is looking forward to the game," Skripnik told the club's website.
Meanwhile, Ujah who took his Bundesliga goal tally to four at the weekend admitted that they overcame the pressure at the Coface Arena against FSV Mainz.
"Back to winning ways. Let's keep fighting boys. Our away fans were great and loud.
"We have been under a lot of pressure in the last few weeks, but we have overcome it.
"It was an amazing feeling, especially as the Mainz fans applauded me. But we have to look forward and concentrate on the upcoming important matches," he told his club's official website.
