Neestrup: We did enough to earn point at FCM

F.C. Copenhagen battled to a 2-2 draw at FC Midtjylland on Sunday with Kevin Diks scoring a 95th-minute penalty to take a point back to the Danish capital.

Andreas Cornelius put the Lions ahead but FCM turned the tie in their favour with goals from Franculino Djú and Dario Osorio before the break.

FCK had to be patient to find the leveller and it came in stoppage time when Diks swept home in front of the travelling support.

"It was a close and even match," said Jacob Neestrup afterwards. "Both the teams took turns to be the better side and when you equalise through a penalty in the 95th minute you come away with a good feeling at the end, because it really would have been bitter and undeserved to go home without even a point.

"I think we were the better team in the first half-hour and should have been well in front, but then we sort of limped towards the break and they scored twice.

"Even though we are struggling at the moment, the players showed a strong mentality today and those who came off the bench also delivered excellently. We could easily have lost because the game flowed back and forth, and there were chances for both sides.

"However, we could also have won today. There are fine margins in what went for and against us, so it was both important and well deserved that we at least got the point.

"In terms of results, we still haven't delivered when we've only got one point from three games, but it wasn't all bad against Brøndby and Nordsjælland, where we weren't that far from taking points after all.

"The table is still not a nice sight with six points between us and first place. But if we win and the others drop points then it can all quickly turn around. Even if we had lost today, I still believe in ourselves."
