“Disappointing first half ... I was not happy but it was better second half. I had expected a little bit more, I hoped for a little bit more,” he said on SuperSport TV.

“But I also have to say that I think they played good, we were a bit lucky a few times, even if we were also close to scoring.

“But 0-0, or should I say it was positive to have a clean sheet again, if I should find something [positive instead of negative].

“It’s been a good week for us, we won two games, but we had hoped for a little bit more today definitely. But that’s how it is. As we said before the game, we expected a tough one and we got a tough one.”
