Miodrag Bozovic: "There are still a lot of games, we have to fight until the end".

Miodrag Bozovic in the post-game press-conference spoke about the game against Terek (0-0), explaining that the result of the match could be considered acceptable.

- We weren't be able to play in our maximum lineup, so we can say that the result is acceptable - said Bozovic. Terek is a 'homesick' team, which suffered some defeats in a row and had a great support of the local fans. About the results of the first round of the championship, we could have played both better and worst. We lost some points at home. In general, the situation is positive, we are close to the Champions League zone. There is still time, so we have to fight until the end. 

Have we got the intention to reinforce the teamWe are a good team yet. Furthermore, we are waiting for the recoveries of Tarasov and Logashov. If we buy someone, it's because is good.

Terek - Lokomotiv 0-0.

In the last appointment in 2014, Lokomotiv flew to Groznyj without a defeat in the last 8 matches. Although the terrorist problems happened this week, the game was regularly played in capital of Chechen Republic after a minute of silence in memory of the victims.

The starting lineup of Lokomotiv was similar compared to the Ural one. In the midfield Aleksander Sheshukov substituted the injured Taras MykhalykThe place of Mbark Boussoufa, disqualified, was taken by Manuel Fernandes, while on the left side returned Alan KasaevMaicon, instead, was tried as striker. 

The match started immediately on high levels: the home side got the possession of the ball, while Lokomotiv quietly thought about attacks. The first real chance of the game arrived at 14' thanks to Lokomotiv. On the left, Kasaev dribbled Kuzyaev and sent a cross in the area. Unfortunately, no red-greens were be able to score. 

After a succession of passes, Mauricio made an assist for Ailton, whose kick finished out

At 34' Corluka made an assist for Aleksander Samedov: Sasha kicked, but Godzyur was careful and sent the ball in corner after a deviation. 

Before the finish of the first time, the protagonist was again Kasaev, who run on the left and made another cross for Aleksey Miranchuk, who missed the opportunity to score.

The second half started with some dangerous attacks made by Terek. After just a minute, Rybus made a great kick towards Ilya Abaev, but the ball finished only near the post.

A few minutes later, 'Railroaders' took the initiative and started creating some chances. After 64 minutes, Loko had a great chance with Miranchuk, but in the end the young midfielder was blocked by a defender. 

Some minutes later, Samedov made a cross for Maicon, but the Brazilian wasn't able to kick and the ball finished in corner after the touch of Godzyur. 

10 minutes before the final whistle, Terek attacked Loko dangerously and in one of those opportunities, Abaev made a beautiful save on Mauricio kick. 

Both teams weren't be able to win the game. Lokomotiv kept the unbeaten series, extending it to nine matches in RPL and 11 matches in all the competitions.

In the last appointment in 2014, Lokomotiv is going to fly to Groznyj, where at Akhmad Arena will play one of the hardest away match of the season against Terek.

Loko has already faced Terek in this season and at Cherkizovo the game finished 2:1. It was the debut of Bozovic and 'Railroaders' got the three points after a difficult fight.

Terek is arriving at the match after three defeats in a row (Dinamo, Krasnodar, Torpedo) and on Wednesday they lost against Torpedo 0:1 in Groznyj. Although these disappointing results, the team is going to prepare as usual carefully the game. Ukrainian goalkeeper Godzyur, in fact, said: "Every player want to close positively the year. So I assure each fan: the mood against Lokomotiv will be the same of our best games." Former red-green coach Rakhimov has heavy absents for Sunday appointment: defender Komorowski, captain Utisev and former Loko midfielder Lebedenko are disqualified. All players received the 4th yellow card against Torpedo. They should be substituted by Adilson, Semenov and Aissati. In the center of the pitch should start Kuzyaev, a very interesting talent grown up in Groznyj. 

Lokomotiv comes from the victory against Ural. After Yanbaev, Bozovic probably has lost also Denisov for the rest of the year. He should be changed probably by Pejcinovic. Boussoufa, instead, is going to miss the game due the disqualification. Aleksey Miranchuk should take the place of Moroccan midfielder, as happened on last Wednesday. Mykhalyk and N'Doye are confirmed, while Kasaev should return in the starting line up. Former Rubin and Dinamo midfielder has been nominated the best player on November by fans before Corluka and N'Doye.

Although there are some terrorist problems in Groznyj, the game will be played in Akhmad Arena in the maximum security, as wanted by Chechen leader Kadyrov.

Miodrag Bozovic: "Thanks to the players, who resisted to the pressure and survived!".

Miodrag Bozovic in the post-game press-conference spoke about the game against Ural (1-0), underlining the fighting quality of the team. 

We started well the game, creating a sort of pressure to Ural defense, - said Miodrag. - Unfortunately, we weren't be able to create dangerous actions. I think that the goal of Corluka was regular. In a match against such 'close' teams, generally, it's very important to score firstly. The visitors had also two chances in the begin of the game, we could have lost it in the end, but players fought until the end. 

I have never spoken about referees, but today I'm going to do it for the first time. Today referees were the worst players on the pitch. They behaved timidly and they were also laughing. 

When fans noticed that the team needed their support, they started chanting and supporting us. Thanks a lot!
