Reus: Dortmund won’t score many playing like that

The forward admits his side were below their best against Koln while coach Jurgen Klopp felt they did not do enough to deserve a win

Marco Reus admits Borussia Dortmund will have to play far better in their upcoming matches after their 0-0 draw with Koln on Saturday.

The hosts were stifled at Signal Iduna Park and were almost caught out on a handful of occasions in the second half as they were held to a second draw in a row.

Reus acknowledges Koln made life difficult but feels his side must improve their composure in front of goal for the remainder of the season.

“We could have done a lot better today. Koln did well, but I don’t think our movement was good enough in the first half,” he was quoted as saying by the official Bundesliga website.

“We didn’t take our chances but it was a really tough game. A lot of it depended on us, but we weren’t mobile enough and didn’t create enough opportunities in front of goal.

“Obviously, I’m a bit disappointed with my own display. Like I said, it wasn’t quite the performance we’d hoped for, but when you don’t have many chances, you’re not going to score many goals. We have to keep the ball better in front of goal.”

Head coach Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, accepted his side did not do enough to deserve the win.

“Other teams have been struggling against Koln,” he told Sky . “The very brightest moments were not there today.

“Our standards were okay, but overall it was too little.┬áIn the second half we were consistent and dynamic, but the lightness in the legs was gone.”
