Edson Buddle on win at Columbus: It doesn’t have to be pretty on the road

Colorado Rapids forward Edson Buddle after scoring the game-winning goal in 2-0 win at Columbus:

On his goal:

"Yeah it was a good ball in from Danny [Mwanga]. I knew he wasn’t going to play it into my feet, saw he was about to cross it, tried to put myself into a dangerous spot. I saw Atiba [Harris] post up his guy before he got the ball and if he was able to trap it or lay it off I just wanted to be there. It popped right to me; I got a good touch and found the back of the net."

On his recent scoring form:

"I don’t know if it’s a groove but we’ll take these points and get back home."

On limiting the Crew’s chances:

"They had some good chances, the Crew, on the road we have to play like that. Put the ball in their end at times. They put us under some pressure, at home they sent a lot of guys forward and we were on our heels quite a bit. We did a good job, Clint [Irwin], the back four, we have to be scrappy; it doesn’t have to be pretty on the road."
