Matej Mitrovic: “Head for Standard with a positive feeling”
Despite the two goals conceded, Matej Mitrovic put in a solid performance.
“We knew Racing Genk has a strong outfit. As in all home games, we counted on keeping the three points at Jan Breydel. Unfortunately we were off to a bad start, conceding an early goal. They played it clever in that situation, finding the space between Brandon and me, allowing Karelis to put it past our goalie. Fortunately we had a good reaction to that setback, drawing level with a spot kick. We then took matters in hand, claiming a 2-1 lead in the second half, and creating two major chances to make it 3-1. Those chances went waning, however. To boot, they were awarded another penalty kick making it 2-2. We lost out on two points, and that's a pity, but so be it. We are just as disappointed as our fans, but we need to retain the good as we make our way to Standard next week.” (FDC)
