Dieter Hecking believes that his Wolfsburg side are well prepared for their trip to Schalke 04 on Saturday.

Wolfsburg head coach Dieter Hecking has insisted that his players are fully prepared for Saturday's away clash against Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga.

Hecking said that he was expecting a tough encounter, especially now that Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is fit, but predicted that there would be gaps left for his side to exploit.

"Schalke are a team with plenty of great individuals," he told Bundesliga.com. "Huntelaar is back and made a great impression against Hamburger SV. Behind him you've got Max Meyer, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Jefferson Farfan, who all have the ability to change a game.

"[They] have every right to stake their lofty claims to a place further up the table and it probably suits us to play them rather than a potential relegation candidate. The boys are ready to do the job. It's going to be a top game."
