Schubert: Draw is a fair result

Borussia Mönchengladbach head coach André Schubert felt his side did not do enough to claim all three points after seeing them held to a goalless draw by Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday evening.

The Foals were unable to make their home advantage count as their winless run in the Bundesliga was extended to four games, leaving them languishing in ninth place ahead of the weekend’s round of Bundesliga fixtures.

In a match short on goal-mouth action, both sides managed to fashion just one shot on target.

Schubert was pleased to pick up another clean sheet, but was less than satisfied with his side’s error-strewn performance.

“We have a very good defensive structure to our game, and have kept clean sheets in our last five games,” he told reporters after the match.

“That is a positive, but we’re lacking a bit of creativity going forward. We’re missing a few key players, and we’re playing every three days at the moment.

“You could see that we were making lots of little mistakes, technical mistakes, which we wouldn’t normally make, like in our movement and control of the ball.

“It meant that we never really got into a good flow. Our opponents didn’t have any chances at all, and we had the one, and apart from that it was a very scrappy game.

“Both teams battled hard. Had we created one or two more chances, I’d have said we deserved to win the game. As it was, we’d have been lucky to get the win, so you have to say that a draw is a fair result.”
