ANDY SCHREUR - Thursday, March 14, 2013
On-loan Stoke City midfielder Maurice Edu and Bursaspor hope to rebound from last weekend's beatdown when they host Trabzonspor on Friday night.

Edu and Bursaspor were dominated in 4-1 loss at Fenerbahçe last Sunday and will look to take it out on the 11th place visitors. The American figures to start once again in central midfield supporting attacking midfielder Pablo Batalla.

Trabzonspor have struggled lately, only winning once in their last five matches. Bursaspor will look to take advantage of a home date with the struggling Black Sea Storm before several imposing dates coming up.

Next week, the Green Crocodiles travel to Kasımpaşa, who they are currently tied with for fourth place in the league. The following week they host third place Beşiktaş. Results in the next three matches will be crucial for on the on-loan Edu and Bursas if they are to push for European qualification.

Bursaspor will have to make due without defender Sebastian Pinto, who is still recovering from a muscle injury.
