After the 2-0 defeat at Jahn Regensburg, here's the pick of the reaction from the mixed zone and the post-match press conference.

Head coach Timo Schultz: "Once again, we failed to bring a performance to the pitch that was good enough for three points away from home. We had our moments and control of the game, but that counts for nothing. In football, it's goals that count."

Director of sport Andreas Bornemann: "It isn't our easiest or best phase. We go out with high intentions and then concede a penalty like that. It was a disaster for us mentally and for the way the game developed. They then got close to our goal for a second time and we were left chasing the game."

Etienne Amenyido: "We fell behind early on and then failed to take our chances, which makes things difficult. We wanted to keep calm and carry on but were unable to find any space. All in all, we have to be honest and say that we didn't have enough attempts on goal."

Luca Zander: "We didn't do enough. It can't be that we have to concede twice before we put our foot on the gas. We could have defended the goals better. The cross for the second was too easy, the header was too easy. I'll need a few days to assess the performance. We have good actions in every game but you don't get anything for that. The bottom line is we need something tangible."

Igor Matanović: "We were unlucky when Paqa hit the post with the free-kick, of course. Ultimately, though, it comes down to a lack of resolve. Regensburg showed how it's done and got the goal from a cross. That has to be our aspiration, too. We need to be more focused and reward ourselves more often."

Mersad Selimbegović (Regensburg head coach): "We consciously allowed St. Pauli control of the game. We knew we wouldn't be able to press them up front all the time. In the second half we were very mature and had some luck at the decisive moment. I can't really fault my team today. I'm so happy for the fans, who've suffered a lot recently and shown they're behind us."
