Nuremberg - The points were shared in a riveting 2-2 draw in Nuremberg on Matchday 2 between 1. FC Nürnberg and Hertha Berlin, Hiroshi Kiyotake salvaging the points for the hosts with a late free-kick after they'd gone 2-1 behind in a frantic second half.

Speaking to the media after the game, newly-signed Nürnberg striker Daniel Ginczek was disappointed not to have won his first game at the Grundig Stadion, while Hertha's Alexander Baumjohann equally felt his side did enough in the second half to take all three points.

bundesliga.com rounds up the key protagonists' thoughts after the final whistle...

1. FC Nürnberg


Daniel Ginczek: It's a shame we couldn't win in my first home game, but things didn't go our way in the second half. We can be satisfied with the unbeaten start, however, and everyone's looking forward to playing Bayern Munich next week.

Javier Pinola: It's certainly the feeling in the dressing room that we lost two points. We were good in the first half but dropped off in the second.

Hertha Berlin:


Alexander Baumjohann*: In the first 45 minutes we certainly weren't at our best, but after the second-half comeback it was frustrating not to win. When you lead near the end, it's disappointing when you don't close it out.

Fabian Lustenberger*: It wasn't an unfair result all in all. Nürnberg were better than us for a long time, but when we took the lead in the second half, it was a shame not to see it through. We controlled the half well and created chances, and we looked particularly good when Ronny came into the game late on.
