Alan Khabalov: We missed our coach and the fans

— I don’t know about the guys, but for me the game was tough. In the last game of the training camp I played 30 minutes, and in the last round I did not enter the pitch at all. I think that because of this I lost a little in "physics". Plus Spartak Arturovich was not there, I think we all find it easier when he prompts.

— Did the silence in the stands affect the game?

— Of course! We really missed the fans in the stands, they usually push us forward all the 90 minutes. But we heard them from a nearby building! Well done! It was very nice.

— Both Tom and Irtysh are outsiders of the tournament, but they gave us a real fight in Vladikavkaz.

— We were expecting such a viscous game from Omsk. They knew that they did not play the ball from the goal, but immediately beat forward and there they were already imposing a fight. Yes, it was not easy, but it's good that we took important three points.
