Cologne host Hannover today with their new captain Petit keen to maintain their recent upsurge in form. Cologne have won four of their last six Bundesliga games to reach a mid-table position. And Petit, given the captain's armband for the first time in the 3-1 win at Stuttgart last weekend and celebrated with his first league goal, wants to add another three points tonight. "We have beaten Stuttgart 3-1 and are in a positive mood as a result," he said.
"We will get another win at home. We want to thank our fans who have always been there for us." Petit admits he is more used to playing for silverware, but he does not regret having given up life in Benfica to join the Bundesliga club in their first season back in the top flight. * PA Sport
