Following the Europa League tie vs Celta, the Pitmen did not fly to Kyiv to stay in Kharkiv for preparing for the Ukrainian Premier League round 19 fixture against Poltava-based Vorskla

The Orange-and-Blacks dedicated the first half of the day to rest and recovery. At 15:30, the Donetsk side gathered on the pitch of OSC Metalist. Before the training session, Paulo Fonseca delivered a long speech, in which the mentor voiced supporting words to the players and cued in on team's preparation for the meeting with Vorskla.

The players, involved in the match against the Galicians, had a brief warm-up before leaving for recovery procedures. The rest of players hold an hour session. It is worthy to note Facundo Ferreyra’s return to the general group, with Viacheslav Tankovskyi still training individually.

The Pitmen are expected to have a morning session tomorrow.

We remind you that the Ukrainian Premier League round 19 meeting Shakhtar vs Vorskla is to be held on 26 February at the OSC Metalist. It gets underway at 17:00. You can buy tickets at the ticket offices of the stadium, online on shakhtar.com, on the club’s partner sites tickethunt.netinternet-bilet.ua and e-sport.in.ua, as well as in the retail chain in Kharkiv.
