Bernardo Corradi

On the team's improvement:

Things have been getting much better. The precision behind our passes is improving and the finishing as well. Our intensity is getting much higher. We battled today and we managed the game better.

On the team's scoring chances:

We had opportunities to score today. I missed a good one so if we keep creating these chances, we'll keep scoring goals. The guys who came off the bench created a lot of chances today. We have to continue like this because with so many games coming up this month, we'll need that help from the bench.

On the win:

It's definitely one of our goals to not concede at home and to be tough to play here. The entire group of guys worked towards that in today's game and I think it was a very good performance defensively.

On playing as a sub:

Right now, the most important thing was to get the three points. We said all along that we've been playing well enough to get results, but we haven't gotten the points. Now, some of those results are coming, so for me personally, I want to keep pushing and make Jesse's job as hard as possible. It's a different preparation coming on as a sub. When you start, you don't know what to expect. When you come on later in the game, you have to prepare yourself mentally for what type of game is being played.

I don't think we played well at all today ...the field was very poor
