I am very glad that after an emotional game against CSKA and after such a tough defeat we had a good game. The team retained its spirit and its dedication.
We had the desire today. It is clear that Astana were weakened without their foreigners, but our players did what we want from them. This will be a good stepping stone before a hard week. We will have to play three challenging games against our direct competitors, Khimki, Avtodor and Nizhny.
