Head coach Dominic Kinnear

On today’s performance:

We had some chances and they [The Crew] made a little bit of a push - one point is not so bad. Obviously going into halftime one to zero, you feel pretty good. We started off the second half pretty good too; I thought we had some good possession and some decent looks. You knew they were going to take some chances going forward and if that’s a penalty, then there you go … a tie’s a tie. I think it is a penalty and I’m not questioning the call, I’m just saying if that's the way it’s going to happen, then that’s the way it’s going to happen.

On Kofi Sarkodie’s performance:

I think he wanted to play well and his movement for the goal was excellent – great attacking play and a great cross. I think Kofi wants to play well if it’s here [Crew Stadium], or in Houston, or anywhere else.

On Tally Hall’s performance:

He made a good double save when it was 0-0 at the time. He’s made some big saves and sometimes you need that when you’re on the road and under pressure.

Midfielder Warren Creavalle

On today’s match:

We were fortunate enough to go up in the first half and just unlucky enough to hold on to our lead. It’s a game of momentum and the momentum switched a couple of times. Throughout the game we had our runs and then they [The Crew] had their runs. Towards the end, we had to dig deep to hold them [The Crew] off on their last push

On Tally Hall’s performance:

It always helps when you have a great keeper such as Tally Hall in between the pipes - he held it down for much of the night. Unlucky to only give up the penalty kick, but he did fantastic job tonight.
