Maxim Uchaykin, Zenit-M Head Coach:

Yesterday we had a practice, today there will be another one. We are getting ready, because I am not happy with the last game. I would like it not to turn out the way it did in the first game in Moscow: as soon as it stops working on offense, we stop playing defense. Aggressive actions in defense should bring the desired result.
