“I am very disappointed about the fact that we gave away a 2-0 bonus", said the goalkeeper of the Blues. "You have to finish the game then and not allow the opponent to come back. We gave Mechelen a kind of oxygen before halftime by letting them score easily. That is never a good moment to concede a goal and it was proved again afterwards. The visitors were very motivated in the second half and wanted to score the equalizer. If we are honest, we admit they were the better team and deserved that second goal."

Simon Mignolet described their equalizer. "I saw the ball coming but the ball went further away than I expected. Therefore, I stood completely out of position and Schoofs could score easily. Unfortunately, we could not score a third goal on the counterattack in the second half because it would have been a totally different game then. This draw is certainly not a good result and especially not for a home match. Luckily another game is waiting for us on Wednesday. Therefore, we have to focus on the future and not on this weak performance." (FDC)
