The result saw crisis-hit Gladbach end a run of three losses in a row in all competitions.
"It was a well-fought, intense and physical game. We wanted to put in a good performance, be brave and implement the coach’s ideas. We managed that at times, even though we gave away two or three dangerous counterattacks, but that can happen," Sommer told reporters after the game and continued:
"It was a well-balanced first half. There were a few attacks after the break that we ought to have made more of and then we could have created some clear-cut chances.
"All in all, it was a step in the right direction. We can build on the point going into the next game. It will be a real fight against Augsburg, one we’ll be ready for. The Bundesliga is hard-fought – we need to battle through and really dig deep to pick up points."
