Reus demands Dortmund momentum

The winger is determined to end the season on a successful note by finishing second in the Bundesliga and lifting the DFB Pokal

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus has urged his side to continue their good run of form after securing Champions League qualification.

BVB have little to play for in their remaining three Bundesliga games after their 4-2 win at home to Mainz on Saturday confirmed their spot in the group stages in Europe in 2014-15.

Jurgen Klopp's men can fall to third, but while that will not affect anything but their pride, Reus wants Dortmund to build some momentum in their remaining matches.

"We've still got four games left, so it's important we don't let our performance levels drop and keep improving," Reus said.

"We also want to take the DFB Cup back to Dortmund, so we mustn't rest on our laurels. We have to keep going."

Nuri Sahin was at fault for Mainz's second goal, as his attempt to find Australian goalkeeper Mitch Langerak was intercepted by Shinji Okazaki, but the midfielder says he will not lose any sleep over an innocent mistake.

"You see bad back-passes all over the world," he said.

"I've seen it a thousand times on TV and now I've experienced it. It's an experience I didn't necessarily want, but that's football."
