Yuri Zhirkov "We are looking only for the win against Ufa"
The Zenit and Russian man on Saturday's match with Ufa.
The fact that we lost points in Ekaterinburg isn't very good, so we are aiming for only a win against Ufa.
Will it be difficult to open up their defence?
I think so, although we are playing at home, so it will be a little easier than if we were away. Ufa will try and defend with men behind the ball and play defensively, so let's hope we can break though their defence.
How angry are the Zenit players for recently dropping points?
We always want to win, including away games, where we've lost points. We're at home so we will go for the win, but this is football and anything can happen, including losing points. We are looking only for the win against Ufa.
Zenit and Spartak are on the same number of points. Are things getting interesting?
Yes, for the week's games and for the entire season.
This week Zenit fans celebrated their 40th anniversary, will this spur the team on on Saturday?
I really hope that we can congratulate the fans with a good game and a win.
