“It was the game I expected,” NYCFC head coach Nick Cushing said. “We knew it was never going to be easy here. I’m really pleased with the performance. We played well, we dictated large parts of the game. I thought we could have been cleaner in our attacks at times. Sometimes we were on the sides because of their [New England Revolution] diamond [formation]. We are really pleased to get a point on the road at New England and pleased that we probably could have gone and won the game.”
“I think you can see guys that aren’t happy about not getting results. We lost last week in a match where we felt that we should have gotten a result in but to come here and get a point is an excellent result.”
