Edin Terzic wants to ensure that Borussia Dortmund do not get ahead of themselves after they took the lead in the Bundesliga standings on Saturday.

The mood at Borussia Dortmund turned from agony to ecstasy in the space of a week as they took full advantage of Bayern Munich’s slip up against Mainz 05 and moved to the top of the Bundesliga standings with a win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Black and Yellows appeared to be down and out after their 3-3 draw against Stuttgart, but they now hold the destiny of the Bundesliga title in their own hands.

But Edin Terzic knows that they still have a lot of work ahead of them, and they cannot afford to celebrate just yet.

"“We took a really big step, but nothing more. Now there are exactly five steps left and we’re not thinking about what might happen in five weeks’ time. We’re very satisfied with the result, but we’re still not happy and we still have a lot of work ahead of us. We have a tough away game waiting for us in Bochum. We have the chance to increase the cushion a bit on Friday night.”“The last two and a half weeks did not feel good. I don’t want to hear too much praise now. We are far from finished,” Edin Terzic added."

Borussia Dortmund hold a one point lead at the top of the Bundesliga standings, and now know that they will win the title for the first time in 11 years if they manage to win their remaining five matches.

But BVB still have room for improvement as their form has been inconsistent at best in recent weeks, and they haven’t won a game away from home in any competition since late February.

Up next for Borussia Dortmund is a trip to local rivals VfL Bochum, who are locked in the battle to avoid relegation.

A win against Bochum on Friday would be a massive result for BVB. And they will be able to rely on the support of more than 81,000 fans in three of their remaining four games after that.
