The final whistle recorded the score 2:2. In an interview with the Press Service of the club the Head Coach of Astana youth Vasiliy Marunyak told on the match:
- We got an intense match, losing in the course of the meeting, the guys did not lose heart and managed to snatch a draw in already compensated time. The team is in a difficult situation, we spent 5 matches in 13 days, two of them away, so it was clear that the guys were tired, especially at the end of the match. But the guys showed mettle, for which they have a special thanks. In general, I think that a draw away is also a good result, now we will try to win in home matches to gain a foothold in the top of the standings.
- Taking into consideration a busy schedule, are all the players healthy and ready to play?
- Fortunately we don’t have injured players, but fatigue accumulated. We are doing the rotation of the squad, today the young Akhanov, Dyusembayev, Basmanov came out, plus four players left us to take the UNT. Of course, five matches in such a short period is too much for the guys, although, despite the fatigue, we owned the initiative, had opportunities, but the quality of the fields does not always allow us to play the football that we are able and used to.
