Atlanta United interim boss Stephen Glass has admitted that the 1-0 defeat against Toronto FC was a massive disappointment on several fronts. Just when it seemed that Atlanta take a point from the game, Pablo Piatti scored in the final minute of normal time to inflict more pressure on Atlanta. The club are struggling in the Eastern conference table and they are placed 12th in the standings. There were some moments in the game when it seemed like Atlanta would finally get back to the run of form. However, the offence was lacking a spark required to get the team out of trouble.
“Massively (disappointed) because I think the performance of the players and the work rate, they deserved a lot more tonight. We are very disappointed not to get one or three points. If we continue that performance level hopefully we will be well situated come playoff time,” said Glass. “It’s no secret that we aren’t getting loads of chances. That’s the game. It’s certainly frustrating. There’s frustration in the sense of the result. We have to try to find a way to pick up points over the last four games and see where we end up,” said goalkeeper Brad Guzan.
