Steve McClaren has expressed his disappointment after his Wolfsburg side were held to a 1-1 draw at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Die Wölfe took the lead through Thomas Kahlenberg on 27 minutes, but Thorben Marx's header denied them a fourth successive win.

Despite losing his first three Bundesliga games after taking charge, McClaren turned Wolfsburg's fortunes around by winning the next three against Hanover, Hamburg and Freiburg heading into today's contest.

I am disappointed that we didn't close the game down after the goal. If you lose the ball so often then you put yourself under pressure.

The 49-year-old, the first Englishman to coach in the German top tier, blamed his side's laxity in possession for the equalising goal.

"I am disappointed with my team," McClaren said after a result that left his side eighth in the Bundesliga.

"We have missed an opportunity. I am disappointed that we didn't close the game down after the goal.

"We made it difficult for ourselves. If you lose the ball so often then you put yourself under pressure."
