Gold Coast Unitedâ€™s Miron Bleiberg says he was pleased his side managed to keep another clean sheet yesterday.
United returned to fourth on the table following the scoreless draw with league leaders Adelaide United at Skilled Park and the result was a positive for Bleiberg who did think his team were unlucky no to get a penalty when Reds striker Sergio van Dijk appeared to handball in the second half.
â€śWe wanted to win at home and close the gap on Adelaide, but overall Iâ€™m not unhappy. We showed that we are as good as they are and on the positive side we played against the team that is top of the ladder and we didnâ€™t lose or concede a goal,â€ť Bleiberg said.
â€śThe clean sheet shows that we are resilient and defend well when we have to. Adelaide werenâ€™t too adventurous but when you lead the league by as many points as they do, you donâ€™t have to go away and attack for ninety minutes. For them this point away from home is a very good one.
â€śLady Luck followed them a little with the penalty claim. I didnâ€™t see it clearly at the time so maybe the referee didnâ€™t see it either and he doesnâ€™t have the benefit of six or seven replays. If the referee wasnâ€™t sure he canâ€™t give a penalty and thatâ€™s fair enough.â€ť
