The Pitmen's head coach reflects on the match against Stal
- First of all I want to congratulate all the miners on their professional holiday and dedicate this victory to them. It was a difficult match. We confronted the team that were very closes in defense and played man to man marking. Sometimes it was hard to find space to get as close to the goal as possible. Please understand that almost ten Stal players were at the goal and complicated our task. Nevertheless, we have created chnces in the first half. After the break, we improved some elements of the game. And in the second half we created dangerous opportunities. As a result, we were able to score. At the same time, we barely allowed the opponents to create chances at our goal, not counting the one episode, when Pyatov demonstrated a superb play. Once again I want to say that today's match was really difficult for us. But today we have won, and I think it was fair.
