Head coach of Lviv Karpaty Myron Markevich commented on the victory over Epicenter Kamenets-Podolsk (2:0) in the 6th round of the First League.
“We had very serious problems before the match. Evgeniy Podlepenets dropped out of the general group and was injured. Arthur Ryabov and Ambrose Chachua were sick and were given IV drips.
Today it felt like they were coming off a cold, and this was reflected in their actions on the football field. They just got back to work yesterday and did some ball work. Their participation in the fight against Epicenter was in question. And to some extent this hindered us. There was no freshness in the center of the field. In the first half, Egor Demchenko had a chance. If he had scored, it would have been much easier.
It’s good that in the second half of the match we made timely substitutions. The guys who arrived only the day before yesterday decided the fate of the match. The game was level until the first goal, but we scored on time,” Markevich said.
