Fink takes positives from draw
Hamburg coach Thorsten Fink is optimistic about the future despite seeing his side only draw 1-1 with Wolfsburg in his first game in charge. Fink, who joined the northern Germany club from Basel last Monday, saw his side recover from conceding an early goal to dominate yesterday's game, but fail to find a winning goal.
The point lifted Hamburg off the foot of the table, although they are still in the relegation zone. "It was a big shock going behind so early," he admitted to Sky television. "It was tough for the team, but they played excellently after that and created numerous chances.
"I think that we were superior in every department. We just lacked a bit of luck. Everybody could see who was dictating the game and if we carry on like this, then we will win and move away from the bottom."
While Fink was more pleased with his side's performance than the result, the opposite was the case for Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath. "I would not say that we were asking for their equaliser, but we certainly did too little," he said. "We had a good first half, but Hamburg tried to put pressure on us after going behind and overall, I am rather pleased."
