Labbadia rues dropped points

Posted Tuesday, September 22, 2009 by PA

Hamburg coach Bruno Labbadia admitted his side "left two points behind" after they could only manage a 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt.

The result was enough to take the northern Germany club back to the top of the Bundesliga, where they share the lead with Bayer Leverkusen, who were also held to a draw. But Labbadia felt his players should have got more from the game at the Wald Stadion, the result of which also ensured their hosts extended their unbeaten start to the season.

"I have got to say that we have left two points behind," said Labbadia. "Of course we are disappointed. After taking an early lead, we stopped playing football a little."

His opposite number Michael Skibbe accepted his side got off lightly against an opponent he believes were superior on the pitch.

"HSV were more than a length in front of us technically," he said.

"We lost possession too often and restricted ourselves to fighting. The only good thing is that we have fought for a point."
