Pastoor stated that he felt his team look powerless at times during the match and was annoyed that his side were not awarded a penalty.

He said, ”We did not control the game tonight and I had the feeling we looked powerless at times.

”We had an initial game plan to zonal mark in the midfield which we then switched to man marking.

”We played better in the last 15 minutes than in the entire game and that is an important lesson for us tonight.

”I also believe that we had a case for a clear penalty ourselves and when you do not get it then you have a bad feeling post-match when you look back on the game.”
