on the result…
To concede with the last kick of the game is always disappointing but what is more disappointing is that over the 90 minutes I thought we had chances and more possession, especially in the first half. We could have put the game to bed and we didn't do so. When that happens you always leave yourself open to conceding late on, which we did.

on concentration…
The girls know that a throw-in to feet in that area of the pitch is criminal. You just allow people to put the ball into your box and when that happens you are always in danger of conceding goals.

on an entertaining second half…
Frankfurt started well in the second half and we knew they were going to come out a little bit. They were probably better in the second half than in the first and we had to weather that storm a little bit. But we started to get ourselves back into the game and once they scored we created a few more chances and made changes to try and win the game. But it just wasn't to be.

on uplifting equaliser…
I thought we were pushing at that stage and dealing with their threat. They always have a threat going forward no matter who is on the pitch, but I thought we were coping with that quite well. To be fair I thought our back four played really well and to have conceded two goals is disappointing on their behalf. But at this stage of the competition, if you don't take your chances then you won't win football matches.

on Frankfurt…
They are a good side, their history and tradition says that. The players they have in their squad says that. The players they have injured and couldn't even play in this game says that, they are a great side. We knew what we were coming up against. If you would have asked me before the game if I would have been disappointed with a loss I would have said yes, and to have lost the way we have is obviously gut-wrenching.

on the second leg…
I think we have shown we can compete with Frankfurt and create chances. We are confident we can go to Germany and score, which is going to be a major factor in the game. I think the next goal changes the game either way really, so we have to go out there to try and score goals.
