'Overall, it wasn't a very good game from us," said Werder Bremen coach Florian Kohfeldt after Saturday's 2-0 victory over Carl Zeiss Jena in the DFB-Pokal.

Second-half goals from Josh Sargent and Tahith Chong sent Werder Bremen through to the second round of DFB-Pokal on Saturday as the Bundesliga outfit beat fourth-tier side Carl Zeiss Jena 2-0.


Despite his team's win, Werder coach Florian Kohfeldt wasn't entirely satisfied with the performance.

"We weren't happy with the first half, we were too slow. We did much better in the second half. We'll have to talk about our finishing, we have to be more clinical. You have to say that Jena really put up a fight. We never had the feeling that we could take our foot off the gas," said Kohfeldt and added:

"We were perhaps a bit too nervous in the first half, because we wanted to try and score early. Overall, it wasn't a very good game from us. In the end, we fully deserved the win, but it wasn't the dominant performance we had hoped for."

Werder begin their Bundesliga campaign against Hertha BSC on Saturday.
