Central Coast Mariners and Pohang Steelers got their Asian Champions League campaigns underway with a point each after their 0-0 draw.
Played in humid conditions at Gosfordâ€™s Bluetongue Stadium, there were limited chances during the contest and Mariners coach Lawrie McKinna believes his side deserved more than one point.
â€śI think we deserved a bit more, we limited their chances,â€ť he said.
â€śIt was tricky tonight, we turned over possession more times than we should have done but overall, I'm comfortable with the result.
â€śWe've lost bad goals recently but we defended well tonight,â€ť he added.
â€śIt wasn't flash but it was a lot more solid than the last five weeks so I'm reasonably pleased. We're not stood here talking about losing a bad goal.â€ť
