Horst Heldt is annoyed with his Schalke 04 side after they allow a two-goal advantage to slip against Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Schalke 04 manager Horst Heldt has admitted that he is struggling to come to terms with his side's dreadful late defending against Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Despite early goals from Klass-Jan Huntelaar and Joel Matip, Schalke let a two-goal advantage slip against a spirited Dusseldorf.

Heldt told the club's official website that the result felt more like a defeat.

He said: "It's almost inexplicable. We dominated the game in the first half in a way that not many other teams in the Bundesliga have matched on the road.

"I'm lost for words. We'll take another look at it to identify the problems and then deal with them. We can't afford to let that happen. We've thrown away a game we were in complete control of for no apparent reason."

The point pushed Schalke up to third place in the Bundesliga table, but a win would have seen them go second, just behind league leaders Bayern Munich.
