Gillet says Anderlecht will push on

Guillaume Gillet set RSC Anderlecht on their way to a win over SK Sturm Graz and qualification, yet said there is more to do despite his side having the only 100% group stage record.

Guillaume Gillet's goal set RSC Anderlecht on their way to a victory that booked their place in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 as the only side on four wins and stated: "We don't just want 12 points out of 12, we want to go further and finish top of the group." Meanwhile, SK Sturm Graz strikers Roman Kienast and Imre Szabics felt that the second yellow card for Ferdinand Feldhofer at 1-0 down ended their chances.

Guillaume Gillet, Anderlecht defender
It was a great team effort. The cross from Matías Suárez was tremendous; he could hardly have seen me. I controlled the ball with my left foot and then shot with my right. The Austrians had some good chances and fortunately for us they didn't go 1-0 up. Five minutes later we scored and we had the impression that it was going to be all right for us if we stayed organised. We are playing well at the back, in the middle and at the front. But we don't just want 12 points out of 12; we want to go further and finish top of the group with six wins out of six.

Tom De Sutter, Anderlecht forward
I'm happy with my goal but above all I'm happy for the team. We won and we have 12 points out of 12. I don't think any team in [the Europa League] has 12 out of 12, so it's a good thing. [Ferdinand Feldhofer's sending-off] was important for us going two and three up, but I didn't think we had difficulties before it.

Roman Kienast, Sturm forward
I think we played a good game but we conceded a stupid goal in the first half. Then we had some chances too, but we lacked the final pass in the box. When you don't create good chances, and you don't score, it's going to be difficult. After the red card we didn't play so well and Anderlecht were very confident with the ball.

Imre Szabics, Sturm forward
It's decisive when a team scores at this level. If we had managed to take the lead it would certainly have been an interesting game. The red card was too much for us since Anderlecht have a really good team. We played just as well as they did up to the sending-off, but afterwards you could see the class of their side.
