Stanislav Matyash: “They deserved to win …”

Zenit-Y`s striker admitted that he could have scored in the first half, but that Nalchik-Y`s victory was deserved.

- We played well in the first 20 minutes, but then we seemed to get tired, - said Matyash. – Although I have to say that even though the field had real grass, it had a lot of bumps. But really, honestly Nalchik deserved to win today. We didn`t attack as well today as in the previous matches. We had a couple of chances, of course, but we couldn`t put them away.

– Could you have scored today?
- Ya, I had some chances. The best chance was in the first half when I was one on one with the Nalchik goalkeeper from the side, but I shot just over the goal. Too bad – if I shot a little lower, it would have been a goal.
