Following his teams goalless draw in New England, Chicago Fire's head Coach Dennis Hamlett is confident his team will get the job done when the 2nd leg of the Eastern Semi-Final returns to Toyota Park next week. When Hamlett was asked about the performance of an under strength New England after the game he said: "We knew that they were going to put a competitive team on the field. They won SuperLiga with some guys missing and they're still the defending Eastern Conference champions. We knew that this was going to be a hard game.
"We didn't come in here thinking they're missing all these guys (or) that this was going to be an easy game, because if we did that we would have just basically set ourselves up for failure."
With all eyes on next week Hamlett continued, "There really wasn't much soccer played tonight, but I think our guys competed," Hamlett said. "Our back group defended well. We're happy with keeping it at zero. Now we go back home and take care of business."
