Kerala Blasters and Delhi Dynamos played out an interesting goal less draw, as both teams failed to score even after creating plenty of goal scoring opportunities. Although, the match was an eye candy for fans, both teams would be disappointed by a point.
“It’s always easier to criticize from the outside but the players don’t mean to miss those (chances), it just happens. We created opportunities but we haven’t taken them and so we cannot ask much more from them (players) besides asking them to put the chances into the net which is not happening at the moment,” Kerala Blaster’s assistant coach Trevor Morgan explained.
“That’s two home games that we have now played and we have managed to keep clean sheets in both the games, we got four points, and it’s not looking that bad. All we can do is work hard in training and keep the boys positive about their scoring and keep working at that.”
“I was a bit disappointed at half-time that we were not in the lead, I thought that we controlled the first half and in the second half towards the end, we kept trying to win the game, because of which we left ourselves very open at the back during the last 15 minutes which exposed us. That is something that we have to rectify and something that we have to learn from and make sure that it does not happen again.” he added.
Although Super Sub Milagres Gonsalves came on in the second half, it was Andrew Barasic who started alongside Iain Hume in a two man attack force. Morgan revealed that it was not a tactical switch but a change to freshen things up,
“Andrew has been coming along well and he got 15-20 minutes on the clock, and today, he got 75 minutes under his belt. We had to take him off because the pace of the game was just catching up with him, so we changed things. Sometimes we change things to just freshen it up, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t!” he concluded.
