A scheduled "end-of-year-assessment" was bumped up to yesterday as Borussia Dortmund reportedly sought to hold a "crisis summit" to address the team's recent poor league form. According to two highly reliable German footballing media sources, this meeting has adjourned with a decision. BVB trainer Edin Terzic and club sporting director Sebastian Kehl will both remain in place.

Westphalia's "Ruhrnachrichten" newspaper reports that club boss Hans-Joachium Watzke continues to support the current coaching and administrative regime. Matthias Dersch, one of the senior German journalists for Germany's preeminent footballing publication, confirms this. Dersch cites his own internal sources to claim that Terzic and Kehl will remain in charge through the new calendar year.

Tuesday's 1-1 draw with FSV Mainz 05 leaves Dortmund with just one win in their last eight league fixtures. Die Schwarzgelben are five points adrift in the race for the top-four and have also been eliminated from the DFB-Pokal. A series of spirited performances in the Champions' League - which saw Dortmund top the so-called "Group of Death - has nevertheless served as a bright spot amid the current gloom.
