Glenn Roeder insists it wasn't bad defending from his side that gifted Frankfurt so many chances, it was brilliant play by the Germans.
The Magpies defended resiliently but on several occasions they were carved open by the excellent Naohiro Takahara, Benjamin Huggel and Markus Weissenberger.
Roeder: 'It was not because of our poor play at times that Frankfurt created a number of chances, I thought it was more their excellent play.
'They had very, very good movement and good quality, particularly from wide areas.
'I take the view that it was the quality play of Frankfurt that caused us the trouble rather than us not doing what we should have.
'When we were allowed to pass the ball, we passed it as well as we could.
'I accept we were on the back foot, but it is still a fantastic result for us, and to have collected 10 points from this particular group with the quality of teams in it, I do not think too many people would have thought we would achieve that.
'But we have achieved it on merit.'
