"The next thing you know, we have two goals and it was a bitter fight from there "
"We were not good tonight, that's the end result. We know we can do a lot, a lot better, and we have to accept the fact that the performance we did was not acceptable, but we can move quickly to something else.
"We have a big match coming tomorrow, so it's important not to dwell on it and leave it in mind."
