Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear was very pleased with his team's overall performance following a 1-0 home victory against FC Dallas.

Speaking to reporters after the game Kinnear said, "It's funny you talk about defence, but I think Brian (Ching) and Kei (Kamara) and Ricardo (Clark) were really good tonight clogging up lanes. Stuart (Holden), Brian (Mullan) and Brad (Davis) did great defensively also.

"We thought if we got the first goal, we would be in good shape, but it's funny -- the first goal gave them some energy and vigor. They made it hard for us there in the end, they got some good possession.

"It's a great win for us. I think the guys are happy and confident with the way things are going."
