Shandruk: The fate of Veres is still in our hands and heads

Rivne team tied with Oleksandriya and are in 14th place before the last round of the UPL

Acting head coach Veresa Oleg Shandruk results of the match with Alexandria (2:2) in the 29th round Ukrainian Premier League.

“We lacked defensive reliability and composure today. Especially in the episode with the second missed goal. We were leading in the score, and subconsciously began to play to hold. Yes, the opponent controlled the ball, but without any sharpness at our goal. We ourselves created this second goal, which did not allow us to win today.”

“Our fate is still in our hands and heads. Of course, it would be better to win today. But, as we see from the results of parallel matches, a victory would not guarantee us a place even in the zone of transition matches. We are disappointed, the fans are disappointed. I thank them again for their support. But I am also grateful to the team. The players fought and really wanted to win this game. Let’s rest and start preparing for the game against Metalist 1925. Everything depends on us.”

“Regarding the injury to Vadim Yushchyshyn. He received a severe blow. He felt uncomfortable. More can be said after the examination. Dmitry Klets most likely has a problem with a knee ligament. There will also be an examination.”

“Given that after the substitutions we missed, the substitutions did not work. They wanted to saturate our defense. After losing the ball, Evgeniy Banada sat in the position of the fifth defender. Nikolai Gaiduchik also looked tired at the end. Unfortunately, an unfortunate mistake led to a penalty. Although this penalty would be worth carefully reconsidering.”

Veres in the match with Alexandria won after the first half with a score of 2:1. In the second half, the guests managed to get even, with Nikolai Mikhailenko scoring a double.

The Rivne team is in 14th place, being in the play-off zone for the right to compete in the elite next season. In the next match, Veres will play Metalist 1925 on May 25.
