Clinton Mata: “No more room for point loss”

A physical combat for Club as it took on league leaders Union: Clinton Mata saw how his team had trouble finding room in a tight organisation, and had an unlikely man of the match in his ranks in Simon Mignolet.

“We are somewhat disappointed", Clinton Mata said at the conclusion of the game. “We really needed to win this one, but we came across a strong Union. A game with lots of intensity, but we are already looking ahead. We're making progress, and we need to be patient. There's no use in wasting energy on details, we just need to keep the focus on our goal. The stats don't lie, however: a nine point lead. But I keep the faith, we had an even broader lead last season and ended up winning it with only one point ahead of Genk. One thing's for sure, there's no more room for point loss.”

Union showed just why it is in first place. "A physical game with a fiery Union. They played well as a team, hardly leaving any room on the pitch. It was up to us to start finding solutions, but we didn't manage to do so today. I did see a number of fine things, though, we need to remain positive. Sometimes it's just that final step that's missing in our play. What's clear now is that they are truly contenders in the title race. Simon put in a massive performance, saving the day on a couple of occasions. But as of now, our focus is on the next game.” (KN)
