Yernar Zhalbyrov: Despite the result, I am grateful to my guys


The head coach of the youth team “Aktobe” assessed the match against the “Kyran” from Shymkent.

— We met with the “Kyran”, which has been a strong middle peasant in the First League for five years. We came to this game with lots of injuries. Even at the pre-match warm-up one starter drop out and we had to replace him urgently. Also, for some guys it was the first match of the season. We conceded an early goal, but immediately leveled the score. We started to control the ball and leveled the game. In the second half we attacked a lot and created lots of chances. However, the implementation was lame. We have been working and will continue to work on it. We pressed on the opponent’s gate, but luck was not on our side. Our defender and goalkeeper had a misunderstanding, which led to an unnecessary third goal. There is a pause ahead, then we are going to play away with “Ongtustik”. Despite this result, I want to thank my guys. They fought to the end and tried to play well. Of course, there are lots of criticism against us. There is something to work on, especially, psychology part.
