New England Revolution head coach Steve Nicol has no excuses for the 3-1 defeat to Kansas City following Emmanuel Osei's 31st minute red card.
Speaking at the post match press conference Nicol said, "We were second to most things (all night), The red card changed it. Even up until then, we were second to most things. We can have no excuses. We didn't do well.
"You're a man down, away from home, and it was 3-1 it doesn't get any harder. I'll give them some credit for the second half. We made them go outside us. Too many balls were getting through us in the first half. We did a decent job in the second half, but it's clearly hard to win the game."
