Chicago Fire head coach Denis Hamlett admits that he was happy with a goalless draw against the New England Revolution at the Gillette Stadium on Thursday night.

Chicago Fire managed to keep their first clean sheet since September 6.

“We knew that they were going to put a competitive team on the field,” Hamlett said. “They won SuperLiga with some guys missing and they’re still the defending Eastern Conference champions.

“We knew that this was going to be a hard game. We didn’t come in here thinking they’re missing all these guys (or) that this was going to be an easy game, because if we did that we would have just basically set ourselves up for failure.”

“There really wasn’t much soccer played tonight, but I think our guys competed,” Hamlett added. “Our back group defended well. We’re happy with keeping it at zero. Now we go back home and take care of business.”
