POSTGAME QUOTES: Houston Dynamo at Toronto FC

Dominic Kinnear- Head Coach, Houston Dynamo

Thoughts on the game…

It was a tough game with tough conditions, we didn’t play particularly well but we got a positive result and we’re happy with that.

What are your thoughts on the red card?

I haven’t really seen it but from my vantage point it didn’t really look like it was a red card. Obviously I will have to take a look at it again before we know if it is the correct call.

What does this late comeback do for the team’s confidence going forward?

We are a confident group no matter what; we don’t get too high or too low. It wasn’t the best performance today but it was a great result. We’ll take this point and be happy with it and move on to the next game.

Did the weather play an impact on the game today?

We actually don’t mind the cold but the wind played a big factor. You can handle rain and other weather conditions but the wind made things uncomfortable for the players and made it a scrappy game.

Warren Creavalle- Defender, Houston Dynamo

What are your thoughts on the game?

We were unlucky to go down a man but the team really showed our character.

What are your thoughts on the red card?

The referee made a decision and there is nothing we could do about it.

Do you feel the weather had an impact on the game?

It was a bit windy and the ball was holding up a bit. Both teams had to adjust to the climate

What does the late comeback do for the team’s confidence

It is a big away draw where instead of them getting three points we were able to get a point out of it and keep pushing up the standings.

Tally Hall- Goalkeeper, Houston Dynamo

What are your thoughts on the game?

It was a difficult game because of the wind, the temperature was fine but the field was a bit soft. I felt like my pivot foot was giving way every time I tried to strike the ball which made it an interesting game for me. Sometimes when the conditions aren’t great and it isn’t going your way you just got to keep fighting.

What does this comeback do for the team?

It wasn’t a great game for us but one thing we always try to do is outwork the other team and put the effort in as sometimes the ball bounces your way and at the end of today’s game, the ball bounced our way and we equalized. We’re buzzing right now because the cards were stacked against us a little and we showed great character to come back and tie the game.
