Cabrera urges Chivas USA to bring more fight

Chivas USA head coach Wilmer Cabrera wants his players to bring more fight to the pitch.

The Goats were brushed aside 3-0 by the LA Galaxy on Sunday, producing a performance that their Colombian boss was not all too happy with.

In the wake of the defeat, Cabrera spoke of how he wants his Chivas side to treat every match like a cup final as they look to improve their record of one win, two draws and two losses.

"The team stopped fighting," Cabrera told reporters. "We have to talk about it because a team should never stop fighting.

"I believe in this team and I believe in these players. But no doubt, in order for us to become a better team and more competitive in MLS, we have to be more consistent and have to take every game like it is a final."

Former Colorado Rapids assistant Cabrera took the reins of the Californian club in January but after guiding Los Rojiblancos to a first-up win over Chicago Fire on opening day, has failed to steer the team to victory in four successive outings.
