His opening statement:
“I thought we looked very laggy. I thought Bethlehem played well, they have some very good young players and a lot of pace on their team. They deserve a lot of credit but I thought for us that we looked tired and it’s understandable after what’s happened midweek. I just hope that Cameron Lancaster is okay. he’s down at the hospital so hopefully, he is going to be okay.”

On wanting more shots from his side:
“We could have shot perhaps a little bit earlier, we had a couple of shots but the keeper made a couple of decent saves. Credit to Bethlehem because they limited us and we didn’t create an awful lot. The extra touch happened not just in the box but around the field and that sometimes happens when you are a little bit tired and the decision making gets affected. I would like to play a little bit quicker but Bethlehem deserve credit, too.”

On Brian Ownby's impact in the second half:
"He’s got good pace and someone that we believe can play at the MLS level. I think he showed his quality midweek. Again we were just trying to manage because his distance was so high and I was just trying to manage the players and make sure that we don’t overload them.”
