Brouwers, who started the game on the bench due to a back issue, said afterwards, ”I knew that I would not be in the starting lineup tonight due to the fact that I have not trained fully this week and I have had a problem with my back. Of course, you are disappointed when you are told that you are a sub because I want to play but I fully understand the choice the manager has made.

”I am aware that I have to get used to playing on AstroTurf during home games after my return to the Eredivisie after playing so many years in the Bundesliga. I will keep doing my best and I have fully confidence that things will work out fine.

”I must say that I think that a 0-0 draw is a fair result tonight as regards to this being our 3rd draw in 4 games you would be better off winning two games and losing two games point wise . The fact that we did not lose gives us a good feeling but we must win eventually to finally get a win and 3 points on the board too”.
