Shakhtar defender gives his take on the upcoming game against Volyn

- Definitely, we will go to Lviv to claim victory only. Regardless of the opponents, we need to continue playing our own game and achieve some positive results. Physically, of course, it is not easy to act on two fronts. After the Europa League game, the team felt somewhat tired in the duel with Vorskla. But we are professionals and will be ready 100 per cent for the meeting with Volyn. In no way should the gap between us and Dynamo make Shakhtar complacent. All our players worked hard not to lose points. We need to be as focused as possible and achieve victory.

- Do you feel at home on the right wing now?
- From match to match, understanding between the teammates improves. In training, I work with full dedication. We should try to justify the coach’s confidence.

- Bohdan, you used to play for Volyn, so you have an insider’s knowledge about your opponents. Will it be easier for you to counteract Lutsk?
- Volyn are a good-level team, who always focus on physical readiness. I'm sure we are facing a tough match. Lutsk are currently at the bottom of the table and, without any doubt, they will fight for points. Plus, all the opponents play against Shakhtar with a double motivation.
