We matched Bielefeld well and created some good chances, as well as the offside goal. What we really need to talk about is the second-half. We came unstuck with two or three long balls and started to lose the control we had. At the end, we had a bit of luck but it was not an undeserved victory by any stretch of the imagination.”
