Chivas USA head coach Preki is very happy with his team's two performances in the second half so far this season. Speaking to reporters following his side's 2-0 win away from home in Dallas, Preki said: "It was a funny first half. We were OK for the first 25 minutes then Dallas got a lot of momentum and moved the ball up and down the field. Both teams were getting chances and luckily for us they didn't score before halftime.

"So we talked about that whole thing at halftime and made sure that we were a little more compact and that they didn't get much space in between the midfield and defensive lines. You have to give our guys credit. In the second half it was a very good and professional performance by us. The way we got the first goal and afterwards. And after the second goal, we stayed very compact and we didn't give Dallas very many looks."
