Simon Mignolet: "Our substitutes made the difference"

Jupiler Pro League

Simon Mignolet was called upon several times in the second half to keep Charleroi from scoring a third, only to see Club then pulling the game to themselves thanks to goals by Nusa and Jutglà.

"I am very happy with the three points. We didn't start well. The first five minutes were for Charleroi and they also took the lead. We took over after that and started playing better. We managed to score the equaliser but they scored a second goal afterwards. That changed the atmosphere but we scored again quickly. The second half was difficult, with Charleroi playing a good game. I had to grab a few balls at that point. I'm glad I could save those for the team, along with Brandon Mechele's save. At the end, we pull off the win. It is very important to still find a way to keep the three points home after a tough match. I am very satisfied with that because that creates resilience when something goes against us. I'm glad I was able to keep a clean sheet in the second half. Our substitutes made the difference today." (KN)
