Brugge's head coach Ivan Leko
Club Brugge head coach Ivan Leko says his charges need to get their act together ahead of their massive clash with Standard Liege.

The defending champions are scheduled to host Liege in a Belgian Pro League match at the Jan Breydelstadion on Sunday.

Brugge are heading into this game having failed to win their last three games in the competition.

They were surprisingly thrashed 3-1 by Zulte-Waregem at home in their previous encounter last week Friday.

“Losing is always painful, losing at home is extra painful, and when you deserve to lose, it's even worse," Leko told club's official website.

"It's hard to explain this, as our will to win at training was great. We now need to go back to the basics, and keep working hard with lots of self-confidence and a positive attitude.

One of Brugge's key players is Zimbabwean midfield maestro Marvellous Nakamba, who is trying to regain the form which saw him being linked with European clubs at the beginning of the season.

"We are not as bad as it may seem today, while we weren't as good as it seemed either after those 0-4 wins at Gent and Monaco," he added.

"The truth lies somewhere in between.”
