Mats Rits: “We had to keep the three points home"

Philippe Clement surprised with Kossounou replacing Rits on midfield. However, Rits replaced the injured Koussounou approximately ten minutes after halftime.

“Our job was actually very simple", talked Rits a few minutes after the final whistle. "You have to keep the three points home when starting the play-offs at home. Therefore, we cannot be happy with this result. Honestly, I was a bit surprised that I started on the bench because I want to play every match. Our first half wasn't good in my opinion. Anderlecht put high pressure and we were not calm enough when possessing the ball. We didn't find the spaces that were there. Moreover, our pressing wasn't good and we gave them to many space. We have to work on that for the next couple of matches."

On to the next match at Genk next Friday. "We mentioned beforehand that we would have to play six finals. So five left now. We play at Genk next week which makes it even more pity that we only grab one point today. Nevertheless, we have to go for the victory there with the same grinta that we showed in the second half." (FDC)
