FC BATE midfielder Dzmitry Baha commented on the game against FC Shakhtyor Soligorsk.
- The goals we conceded were... I cannot even find the right word for that. Not necessary, let's put it like that. In the first half we were better, we had the game in control. We did not create any super opportunities, but we lacked just one last pass. It could have ended differently.
This is football. Every player makes mistakes. But for goalkeeper the price for it is much higher. Now we need to support Germans and move on. In the dressing room no one reprimanded Māliņš for the blunders. Quite on the contrary, we tried to cheer him up. The team is to do everything for our goalkeeper to forget about this match. And helped us in future.
After Edhar Aliakhnovich was sent off, we had troubles up front. And the first goal conceded was a psychological blow for us. The home side did not have any chances to score, and all of a sudden they have such an advantage.
Definitely it is hard to start the championship with a loss. We will try to bounce back and rehabilitate for it. The main thing is to remain a team and to overcome all the hardships. We are to be optimistic.
