New York City FC Head Coach Ronny Deila:

On the match and a scoreless draw despite outshooting D.C. United 19-0...

"We didn't take our chances in the first half. We had two, three very good chances and we should have a goal from that. We didn't do that and it's always dangerous to get one counter attack [against you]. You get a little bit impatient or you lose discipline and concentration for awhile and they get their chance and score, but they didn't do that...We need to create more, but it's not easy away when the other team has 10 players inside the box...We get a point, but we feel that we've lost two. Again, they had no chance to get three [points] so that's a positive thing."

New York City FC Midfielder James Sands:

On D.C.'s tactics...

"It's a little bit of a sign of respect that we've been doing well the past couple games. It's also a bit of a learning experience for us. If we keep winning games we're going to play more and more teams like that. I think it was good to play that type of game now, especially as we have Cincinnati coming up which I know plays a similar sort of style. On one hand we were really good defensively and that's a big positive, and on the other we, all have to work a little harder to create some more chances."
