Foxborough, Mass. — It wasn’t pretty and they didn’t play well. But, the New England Revolution left Saturday night’s game with three points and that’s all that matters.
“Truth be told, we didn’t play well, we didn’t pass the ball well,” said Revolution coach Steve Nicol after Saturday’s game. “I think the biggest thing was we didn’t have any legs tonight. And consequently, we didn’t pass it well and we didn’t play well, but what we did do was we stuck at it and we got a goal.”
The Revolution defeated D.C. United, 1-0, on Aug. 7. The lone goal came in the 42nd minute after Pat Phelan headed in Chris Tierney’s free kick from near midfield. Phelan flicked the ball into the inside post.
