FC Dynamo Brest’s defender Maxim Vitus shared his impressions from the away game of Belarusian Highest League Round 6 against Isloch, which ended in a surprise defeat 3:1.
– It’s hard to speak after a game like this. Isloch did better and won. We squandered our chances playing against ten men. Our side created enough scoring chances, but the opponent decided to play more simply and shot from long distance. We conceded an early goal and had to get back to the game quickly. We would have played more solidly, if we managed to take the advantage. To our misfortune, it happened vice versa.
We played badly making clearance in the midfield, while conceding the goals. We made bad clearance, let them shoot and they did it well.
– We had a tough schedule recently, and the Head Coach, obviously, let some players rest. We have quality set of footballers, we do believe in each other and don’t make segregation between first and reserve squad. If one has a chance to prove himself, this is a great motivation itself.
Did the move from natural into artificial pitch influence you?
– The pitch was OK. It’s of a high quality on this stadium.
How did you motivate yourselves, preparing to the opponent, knowing their table position?
– Everyone, who follows Belarusian football, knows, what footballers play for the team. These men can make the difference. Moreover, the negative, which stroke the club, united the team. More than that, for the games against Brest many sides have double motivation. Personally I realized the opponent’s strength quite clear.
