Radzivonau: tough in tackles

FC BATE Borisov captain Vital Radzivonau commented on the game against FC Neman Grodno won 1-0 away:

- I am happy that I managed to come into the game not badly. I thought I might be coming as a substitute, but coaching staff takes decision. I need to gain fitness and it is much more pleasant via playing. Today I spent almost half an hour on the pitch. But I lost breath quite quickly and it was a bit harder. I had a good chance to score, but failed to put the ball lower and missed the target from a very good position.

I have to give credit to Neman who are a tough opponent. The game was difficult without a lot of opportunities from both sides. In Grodno we always have difficult games. Now Neman are doing well in the table and definitely sets big targets. You can see the team is well organised and plays great.

But we had no right to drop points. This is why we were so determined. The game was difficult for refereeing with a lot of tackles and yellow cards. The most important thing is that we did not lose those tackles and won three points.
