Robbie Kruse is expected to be available for Fortuna Dusseldorf as they get set to face Mainz in the German Bundesliga on Sunday.
The Australian attacker missed last weekendâ€™s 2-1 loss at Schalke because of bronchitis but suggests he could be on the pitch when Mainz come to town.
â€śOn Thursday I should hopefully be back with the team,â€ť Kruse said.
â€śI want to play on Sunday absolutely.
â€śIt was hard for me to have to watch from a distance. My team has done well, but Schalke was a strong opponent.
â€śWe lost against Mainz at Winter Cup and training camp are the strong, but this time it's our turn.â€ť
Dusseldorf currently sits 13th on the Bundesliga table with Kruse scoring four goals so far this season.
