He said: 'I am satisfied with the result, the same as the result when we went to Latvia (in the last round). We have got an away goal and a clean sheet, which was vital for us tonight for obvious reasons.
'The first-half performance was very good, but in the second half you have to say that at times, we did not look as sharp as you would expect us to be.
'I do not make excuses, but you have got to look for reasons. We looked at our travel arrangements and we have been out here for two days like we did when we went to Ventspils and looked full or energy throughout the game.
'But tonight, five or six players looked tired with 20 minutes to go, which is quite unusual. But when we had to defend, we defended a lot better tonight.'
