Quote Sheet:

FC DALLAS HEAD COACH OSCAR PAREJA

Thoughts on the match

"The first half we couldn't find a rhythm. We lost control in the middle, but that was fixed in the second half with the subs we made with Mauro [Diaz] and bringing Fabian [Castillo] on the left. The boys did an excellent job. We won a game that we needed to win."

On returning players

"The team is playing great. We know our chance and we know what happens if we miss it. But at this point getting three points away, we appreciate and it says a lot of the team. Getting players back from injuries and players who are just ending their suspension; all those things make us better offensively."

On getting Fabian Castillo back

"It took him a little bit to get in his rhythm but Fabian is Fabian. He made some great movements in the second half. Having him back is fantastic."

FC DALLAS FORWARD FABIAN CASTILLO

Thoughts on the game

"I think it was a tight match. Chivas created a lot of plays, but so did we. I think the game was for either side, but in the end we took advantage of the opportunity that was given to us and scored a goal that gave us the victory."

Thoughts on the assist

"Those are quick plays where one has to decide whether to kick or give a pass; I think I made the best decision of giving the pass and we won with that goal."

On coming off a suspension:

"I feel happy. I was really excited to get back on the field and I was given that opportunity to get back today so I gave it my all."

FC DALLAS FORWARD TESHO AKINDELE

Thoughts on the match

"I thought it wasn't the best game that we've played but everybody just worked hard and we ended up getting the result and that's the kind of thing that you need during the season."

Thoughts on goal

"I think it was just good passing, everyone was just passing the ball and Fabian [Castillo] did a one-two with Blas [Perez] and I was just wide open in the back post for an easy tap in."

On earning three key points

"The West is so tight right now. Every game is like a playoff game for us so we are super excited about those three points."
