FC BATE Borisov defender Zakhar Volkau commented on the game vs Isloch won 2-1 in Belarusian Cup at Borisov-Arena:
- We are continuing to make up with our supporters for the loss in Supercup game. Two wins vs Isloch is a plus. To add to that we wanted to get a positive result in the first home game of the year and to celebrate it with our supporters.
At first we had to adapt to the pitch which is not the best at the moment. Big thanks to all stadium staff who made all possible efforts to prepare the pitch. We have to admit before the break the game was not good on our side. We were not too sharp up front and we also conceded a goal.
In the break coaching staff made some changes and we understood that we needed to be better. We started to play more aggressively and quickly made it 2-1, and could have scored even more. And we also tried to be better in the rear not to give the opponents the chance to hope.
Now many BATE players will go to the national teams. I hope everyone will return to BATE in good mood.
