Volkau: it was a pleasure to play

FC BATE Borisov defender Zakhar Volkau commented on the game vs FC Vitebsk won 1-0 away in Belarusian Vysshaya Liga MD4:

- We faced a strong team that has had a good start in the tournament and beat Shakhtyor. We understood it will be a difficult game. And we are very happy to get the result we needed. I think that was a deserved win. We created chances and on the whole controlled the game. Maybe only after the break we devoted a bit more time to defense. I would not say a game in Vitebsk is something special for me. Today a lot of my relatives and friends were in the stands. They supported me for sure. I think the atmosphere was great. It was a pleasure to play with a lot of spectators present.

This is great we kept clean sheet again. For me as a defender this is the most important thing. Although an assists was also great. Ihar Stasevich made a cross, I jumped off and prolonged the pass. And then Misha Hardzeichuk's scoring skills made a difference. This is great we started well in Vysshaya Liga. But it is just 4 matchdays. We cannot afford stopping now. We need to win in every match to get where we want to be.
