Lewis Holtby drops to the bench for Hamburger SV's Bundesliga clash with Hertha Berlin on Saturday.

Josef Zinnbauer has named Lewis Holtby on the bench for Hamburger SV's meeting with Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon.

There is no room in the starting XI for the visitors, meaning that Rafael van der Vaart is likely to operate in a central position behind Pierre-Michel Lasogga.

Ashton Gotz is handed the start in defence as a replacement for Dennis Diekmeier, who misses out due to injury.

Hertha are still without the services of Julian Schieber, which means that Solomon Kalou starts on his own up front in an unchanged team.

Hertha Berlin: Kraft, Schulz, Heitinga, Lustenberger, Pekarik, Skjelbred, Beerens, Ben-Haitra, Stocker, Hosogai, Kalou

Hamburger SV: Drobny, Westermann, Djourou, Jansen, Gotz, Ostrzolek, Behrami, Arslan, Muller, Van der Vaart, Lasogga
