The BVB coach rued his side's profligacy after they were held to a tie away from home, losing further ground on the Bundesliga leaders

Thomas Tuchel voiced his frustration with Borussia Dortmund's inability to put the game to bed after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Mainz.

Marco Reus put Dortmund into an early lead after some good work from Andre Schurrle and they created a number of chances to double the advantage.

They failed to add a second goal, though, and Danny Latza eventually restored parity with seven minutes left on the clock.

"It was a decent away game from our side in the opening 45 minutes," Tuchel stated at a news conference.

"But we were unfortunately not able to make the most of our dominance and score a second. It is annoying. We failed to double our lead.

"We did not give away any chances of note until the equaliser. I think we were very alert in defence and showed the right attitude. We dealt well with their counterattacks.

"We feel that we should have had a few more points now. It will be difficult."

Dortmund remain fourth in the Bundesliga table following this weekend's results, trailing table-topping Bayern Munich by 14 points.
