Yablonski: we have to be patient

BATE midfield Yauheni Yablonski commented on the game against FC Neman Grodno won 1-0 away:

- It is always difficult in Grodno. This is great we won today. I think this is a deserved result. We did not show our best for sure. The home side were really determined, played very toughly with a defence that is hard to play through. There were no free space. We had a lot of set-pieces, but failed to capitalize on them.

Luckily we scored after the break quickly. We knew we need to make the opponent get tired as quickly as possible and then we will have chances. After we broke the deadlock we had opportunities to double the lead. If we had scored, our life would have been easier. But we had to feel nervous until the final whistle.

I think tough schedule affects the way we play. I can feel it myself. But we know we have to be patient. Now this is important to grab points. And I would like to support Aliaksandr Karnitski. We had a terrible collision. But Sasha is a true fighter and will come back soon.
