Zhaunerchyk: it was hard at times

FC BATE Borisov defender Maksim Zhaunerchyk commented on the game against FC Gorodeya won 2-0 at Borisov-Arena:

- The win is the most important thing today. Although I can also say that in terms of play we were better than average. We created a lot of opportunities up front and kept a clean sheet quite convincingly. The away side did not have a lot of opportunities. Before the break it was only one shot from outside of the box. On the whole we took a well-deserved three points and continue chase for opponents.

For me it was the first game after an injury. I managed 90 minutes, although it was hard sometimes. I lost some playing momentum. But to get it back one has to play. Hopefully I will become better and better with every game.

We knew Gorodeya is a tough opponent. They can make troubles to any team. They play really with a lot of tackles and fouls. But we were ready for that. I only thought that at 0-2 in the end they would attack with the whole team. That was not the case.
