D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH BEN OLSEN
On tonight’s performance:
“I was just told we hadn’t won here in 13 years. This was a good thing. We got that monkey off our back. It’s always a tough place to play. In this league you get teams that are down on their luck with injuries. They (the Earthquakes) have a lot of them and you have to take advantage of it in this league. I was just happy we took advantage of a team that’s down on their luck. I was proud of the guys. Dwayne is obviously in a very special place.”
The San Jose Earthquakes return home looking to put an end to a long winless run when D.C. United pay a visit to Buck Shaw Stadium on Saturday evening. The Quakes haven’t won in eight league games, since defeating United on June 11, after a 4-0 loss at Real Salt Lake last weekend. United last played in league competition 10 days ago, falling 1-0 to the New England Revolution at home.
