Quotes from last night: Chivas USA

HEAD COACH – ROBIN FRASER:  

Thoughts on the game: “I thought we had a decent start.  We were able to create a couple of chances early on and certainly looked like we were capable of creating a few more. We came out in the second half and I was very happy with the result of the group, certainly there were moments in the game where it became difficult and we had to do a bit of emergency defending, but I was very pleased with the way we were able to finish the game. I thought we finished the game stronger than we have several times this year.”

On the impact of the substitutes: “You really can’t say enough about the three subs who came in. Jorge and Juan [Pablo Ángel] combined for the goal and then Pete had some very intelligent minutes down the stretch. So overall it’s a performance that we feel certainly good about. We always feel like things could be better but certainly it was a performance and a result that we are happy with.”

On the upcoming game at Dallas:  “For us it doesn’t matter who the next opponent is, we have to continue to improve. There were some things tonight that certainly we thought we could get better and sharper at. Regardless of who we play, there’s going to be that challenge. Dallas in particular is a very talented team. They’ve certainly not gotten the results that they’re capable of. The weather is another factor there, it will be warm and hot. It will be our third game in a week, but that’s how this league is. Dallas, for me, is a good team. They have a lot of good players and for us, it’s another real exercise in concentration and being able to tighten up on a few things.”

FORWARD – ALEJANDRO MORENO

Thoughts on the game: “It was tough, we did some good things in the first half, lost the rhythm of the game a little bit towards the end of the first half.  They capitalized on it and they got a tying goal.  The second half was a pretty open game, they had a couple chances, we had our chances and in the end Juan [Pablo Ángel] scored a great goal and we got out of here with a win that we really needed.”

On the win: “It’s three points that we really needed.  We’ve done a lot of good things the last month of the season and it’s important for us to continue to get three points.  There have been times this year where we deserve a little better from the games and we didn’t get the points that we needed, it’s about that time for us to get some consistency with our results.”

MIDFIELDER – JORGE VILLAFAÑA

On the match: “It was a pretty good match, we were on top and then they tied and at the end of the last minute we got the goal and a good result at home.  Let’s keep building on this and let’s prepare for Saturday against Dallas.”

On his assist: “It feels great, it feels good to come off of the bench and help the team win. That’s what you have to do when you come on to the field, you have to give everything you have and this time it made a goal and we won.”
