Darko Milanič: "As we have seen again, beginnings are hard, but victory is very important. It is a pity that we did not score in the opening minutes, as the game could have gone faster in the other direction, so the domestic footballers were aggressive and persistent until the end. Compliments to the boys for their performance, and to Bajde for the goal. We have an advantage on which we can build, but this does not ensure us getting ahead. We saw the competitor show a dynamic play and other good qualities, so we will have to present a solid and quality performance at Ljudski vrt.
We have positioned ourselves well and Saša Gajser assessed them well during the observations. However, we need to prepare thoroughly for the match next Thursday."
