New England Revolution head coach Steve Nicol feels strongly that his team lack any game sense.

Speaking to reporters following the 2-0 defeat at home against the Houston Dynamo this weekend Nicol said, "Most of our problems have come from lack of game sense.

"We have so many young guys playing, and you're playing against a team who's just a good experienced team. They're a good solid team. They don't overcomplicate things.

"They have two guys up front who hold the ball, and we can't hold the ball. Which means it makes everything else very difficult. Game sense, game knowledge, is what beat us today."
