Mumbai City FC boss Peter Reid says that he satisfied following his side's goalless draw against FC Goa, despite his team not being able to find the net in their last three fixtures.

Even though the Ranbir Kapoor co-owned side were dominated by FC Goa, especially in terms of shots on target, they still managed manage to keep a clean sheet and salvage a point from the game.

And Reid, who's side are now on a five-match unbeaten streak, says that that he is happy with Mumbai City's performances, insisting that they are currently "the hardest team to beat" in the Indian Super League.

"I'm delighted with the performance. Defensively, we were good again," Reid told ISL's official website. "At this moment in time, we're the hardest team to beat in the league."

The former Manchester City boss, however, admits that he is disappointed with his side's inability to convert their chances.

"I was disappointed with just one thing – not finishing off the chances," he added. "If you have chances and the keeper makes saves, you hold your hands up. But when you get through in those positions, you've got to work the keeper," he added.

"You won't believe this – in training, the finishing is fantastic. It's absolutely fantastic. But, in the pressure of the game, at this moment, we're not delivering."

Yet, Reid is confident that Mumbai's goal drought will come to an end soon.

"We can keep creating, and sooner or later, I promise you, we'll stick it in the net," said the Englishman.

Meanwhile, FC Goa manager Zico feels that his side's 0-0 draw against Mumbai City was due to both teams' goalkeepers and defenders being on top.

"I think the goalkeepers played really well. They saved numerous chances. As both teams had very good forwards, the defenders had to play well. It is not easy marking Robert Pirès, André Santos or Nicolas Anelka. I think the crowd that came today liked the game," the Brazilian legend told ISL's official website.

Although the Virat Kohli co-owned side are currently second from bottom in the ISL, with nine points from nine games, the 61-year-old Brazilin is confident his side can qualify for the semifinals.

"We still have hope because we have three matches at home. We will have to work really very hard to recover the points that we lost today. The important thing is that the team is reacting well to such results and I hope that we will be able to show the same in the next match," he added.
