Hamburg - SV Hamburg's season continued to improve Sunday as goals by Paolo Guerrero and Marcell Jansen gave them a 2-0 Bundesliga victory against Nuremberg.
It was the second game that the club from northern Germany won under new coach Thorsten Fink and takes them to 11th in the table on 17 points.
For Nuremberg it was the fifth away defeat in a row and leaves them in trouble on 15 points. They are one place off the relegation zone in 15th place.
Peruvian international Guerrero, who was accused by Nuremberg players of pushing aside his opponent before scoring in the 23rd minute, said that his side deserved the win.
'We put them under a lot of pressure. It was not a foul when I scored. The referee said nothing and I played on.
'The new coach has made a difference. I played with him at Bayern Munich and he knows my strengths.
'We are on a right way. We have a young team and we want to continue going forward,' he said.
Nuremberg twice hit the woodwork through Tomas Pekhart and Nuremberg players rued the missed chances. 'It is a match that we should really not have lost. We had more of the game and had chances to win,' said midfielder Daniel Didavi.
On Saturday, two goals a piece from Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery took Bayern Munich back to the top of the standings with a 4-1 victory against Werder Bremen.
The win takes the club from the Bavarian capital to 31 points - one more than Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Moenchengladbach, who drew 1-1 in the other top-of-the-table clash in Moenchengladbach.
