Austrian new boy David Nemeth has established himself in central defence alongside Jakov Medić. The 21-year-old, who has started every game since returning from injury, has impressed with some excellent performances. After training on Thursday morning, Nemeth took questions from the media.

David Nemeth on...

... the number of goals conceded: "It's obviously annoying, both for me and the entire team, but I do think we've done better in the last few games. We had a few organisational problems early on, though that’s improving as well. We're functioning better as a team. We're giving away fewer chances overall, but the ones we have allowed have usually gone in. If we keep working, though, I'm sure we'll have more clean sheets."

... his pre-season injury: "I played in the first two warm-up games and was out for about seven weeks after that. It's obvious you're going to have organisational problems then, but I think it's looking better now."

... partnering Jakov Medić in central defence: "I think Jakov and I are very similar types of player. He's very aggressive in the tackle and does his job extremely well. He has a super left foot. I think we complement each other quite well. We've both quite experienced, even though I'm not that old yet. We have a good mentality that we're trying to transfer to the team and it's looking good."

... Regensburg's modest goal tally to date: "We don't make a point of looking at how many goals the opposition have scored or conceded. We don't want to concede against any team we play. That's why I don't care who we face next, I never want to concede a goal."

... special training sessions for the defenders: In general, we're gelling more and more as a team and improving our internal organisation in training. We also have the video analysis sessions as well, which we do both individually and as a team. You can see we're communicating better now."

... the personal relationships in defence: "Obviously, it's always good when you get on really well. All the centre-backs get on very well. We're a super group as well and that's definitely a huge help."

... the discontent among the fans after the draw against Sandhausen: I did notice that. We had a game plan we were determined to see through. I don't think you can reproach us either because we had our chances, we just didn't take them."

... his personal goals at St. Pauli: We have huge potential in the team. We play good football. Even though we haven't always won, we've been well in it every time and within reach of a win. Apart from the Hansa Rostock game, we've always been well in it. If we can play to our potential, we can be successful. Personally, I want to achieve things here with the team and that's the priority for now."
