Quote Sheet:

FC Dallas Head Coach Oscar Pareja

On his team's performance:

"We did well, we played very well. It has been one of our best performances as a team. The discipline, character, and the fight the boys showed today just made us feel like we won more than one point. We want credibility for ourselves after the struggle we had during the week. We have played three games in seven days, we came out big today and the boys know, everybody knows the best team tonight was FC Dallas."

On using his substitutions at the end of the game:

"To be honest the team that performed today was needing a little bit of gas the last fifteen minutes because like I said, we've played three games in a week. If it wasn't for that reason the boys were ready to play more than 90 minutes with such discipline and character. We had a few options and a few looks at goal and Salt Lake was lucky to walk away with a point."

FC Dallas DF Matt Hedges

On playing three games in seven days and earning the road point:

"It felt great. I mean it's our first clean sheet of the year, something that we've been looking to do. Coming into Salt Lake is never an easy place to play and getting a point here and doing it with two or three games in a week is never easy."

On the performance of the defensive back line:

"Fantastic. Everyone in the back four was really great. We stayed organized, we stayed disciplined and it was just a good performance from everybody. No mistakes and we did what we came here to do."

FC Dallas GK Chris Seitz

On his first shutout of the season:

"We came in with the mindset of being hard to beat. We knew we were going to create some chances and our goal was to get out of here with a good result. Obviously we didn't get the three points but we got a clean sheet in a tough place to play so we're going to take the positives out of this for sure, and try to build for a little home stretch that we can build off this with."

On the performance of his back line:

"We battled. We just played a really good team and we shut them out in their place. It's always a tough place to play and for those guys to go out there and do what they did and really put a complete performance on the backline is awesome. We look forward to many more of those."
