Dost: 'It's quality with a bit of luck involved'

Wolfsburg - Bas Dost was the talk of the town once again as he followed up his four-goal salvo against Bayer 04 Leverkusen with a brace against Hertha Berlin on Matchday 22.

VfL Wolfsburg rounds up what the big Dutchman and the other protagonists of Sunday's late match had to say...

Bas Dost: "It wasn't pretty football today. We took the lead and started off well, but then we threw our advantage away too easily. We need to play better than today really. I still believed we could win and eventually made it 2-1. It happens sometimes that when you're on a run, the ball just always seems to arrive where you are. It's a quality too, but there's also a bit of luck involved."

Andre Schürrle: "It was a battle and we had to hold our own while we enjoyed a lot of the possession. We just had to try to force a way through. In the end, it paid off that we remained patient. We had a few chances, and then in the end we got the decisive goal. It was an incredibly important win."

Naldo: "Hertha did a great job and didn’t leave us much room. It's a pity we conceded and the coach told us we had to be quicker in the second half when I think we were better. Bas scores all the time at the moment. He's always there when you need him."

Robin Knoche: "We knew that they would stick men behind the ball and defend with discipline, but we're delighted that we won the game in the end. Maybe we should have taken some of our chances better."

Christian Träsch: "We let ourselves get lulled into a false sense of security, and then they equalized. However, it's great to be part of this team again. It's so much easier just to slot into a side when everything is working than when things are not going so well."

Hertha Berlin

Per Skjelbred: "We just have to move on. We held our own, fought our corner, but it's not easy to play against Wolfsburg. Now we've got to move in the right direction. Next up we have Augsburg and we've got to think from game to game."

Marcel Ndjeng: "I've got to pay compliments to the team for the attitude we showed. Wolfsburg didn't have huge chances and they really struggled for a while. It was a real blow when they hit the post and Dost was there [to make it 2-1]."

Fabian Lustenberger: "I think it was a decent game from us. We put in a lot of effort against a strong team, but football's all about results: Wolfsburg have three points and we have zero, so we're disappointed."
