Simon Mignolet: “Conceded two goals with ill timing”

For the second time this season, Simon Mignolet conceded two goals in one game. A dejected Club goalie offered his views on what happened in Kortrijk.

“Being Club Brugge, you always want to go for the win. Particularly when you're 0-2 up, you just have to hold on to that. We concede two goals with ill timing, however: one just before and one straight after the break. After that 2-2, you just know it can get stormy around these parts, but the guys kept working for it until the end. Unfortunately it wasn't enough to claim the full loot here, and that's sad. We knew this was going to be a physical game, with their small pitch, and the way they usually play. After their second goal, you just know they'll do whatever it takes to hold on to that point. We had our fair share of chances to score that third, and also kept them from creating too much danger too. But we really should have kept a hold of that 0-2. Take that to the dressing rooms, and it's a different game completely.” (SF)
