Odisha responded well in second-half, says coach Baxter after facing defeat against Chennaiyin FC

Chennaiyin FC registered a 2-1 victory over Odisha. After this defeat, Odisha coach Stuart Baxter said that he was happy to see the fight shown by his team in the second half of the game.

In a post-match conference, Baxter said, "I am not happy with the manner in which we gave away two goals and the way we started the game. But the game was not lost. I know football. I thought the response in the first half was okay. The response in the second half was very good. We deserved to get something out of the game." He further added, "The goals were from our own mistakes, I don't think we were in a lot of trouble apart from that. It was an even game for the rest of the half. In the second half, we played good football."
