POSTGAME REACTION: Bradley Wright-Phillips | 06/02/18

On frustration with tonight's result:
Wright-Phillips: “Yeah, just a lot of frustration. Obviously, we got off to a decent start, but I think to sum up the game, there's not enough good performances or final play creation. There just weren't enough today."

On lacking creativity in the final third:
Wright-Phillips: “That's what I've been thinking since I came in here. I don't know why. I think we had a good game plan. I think we could've done better on getting second balls to set up attacks, and I think on that we didn't do too well either. I think that just shows that if we don't do the things that make us play well, we won't get results."

On the key to success entering a busy stretch of the season:
Wright-Phillips: “Individually, we need better performances. We've got a tough week coming up. We wanted to start off this week with a win and unfortunately we didn't, but we've still got two games to make it right. I think we win the Open Cup game and get a good result in Columbus, it's a successful week, but it's just disappointing tonight."

On missing key players to international duty and the players that stepped into the rotation:
Wright-Phillips: “I think we got that spot on. I just think when we [were] winning second balls and the balls [were] dropping, we didn't do enough with the ball, especially in the final third. Sloppy turnovers – I don't think it had anything to do with personnel. I think the guys that have come in today have earned their spots. They've been working hard all season. I don't think it was that. I just think when we had chances to play and create, we didn't."
