bundesliga.com was on hand to collate a handful of post-match thoughts on Matchday 8's closing fixture...
SC Paderborn 07
Mario Vrancic: We kept our cool after falling behind and stayed patient. We knew we'd have chances. We upped the pressure after the substitutions. That rocked Frankfurt; they didn't know how to defend against Marvin [Ducksch] and Stefan [Kutschke]. It's important to have quality on the bench.
Stefan Kutschke Hats off to the whole team, they put in such a massive effort after going a goal behind. We earned it and could have won by more. Marvin [Ducksch] and I are grateful to the coach for giving us the chance. I said to Marvin beforehand that this'll be our game. I'm really happy, but it's about the success of the team more than anything else.
Lukas Kruse: The win's the right result. We dominated, had more of the game and fought back brilliantly. The equaliser was the turning point; Marvin [Ducksch] showed what he's capable of.
Bastian Oczipka: We had one or two chances after they equalised, but defensively we weren't compact enough.
Felix Wiedwald: Until conceding, we'd done a good job. Then we fell apart and gave the game away. We need to consolidate our place in the table, pick up as many points as we can and keep the relegation places at arm's length.
