Rukh assistant coach Vitaliy Ponomarev commented on the 2-2 draw with Chornomorets in the match of the 14th round of the UPL:
“Difficult game. This is understandable, because it is the end of the football year. But thanks to the guys for showing character. We have a young team, in today’s game two more guys made their debut in the main team.
It is very valuable that, losing during the match 0:2, we bounced back, fought to the end, wanted to win. For our guys, this is a significant experience, we thank them for the game.
I can’t say that we played poorly or non-aggressively in the first half, but the more experienced Chornomorets team used their chances. Even for the first half, I can’t reproach the guys, just considering the experience of the Chornomorets players, we lost in it.
