Ján Haspra (head coach of MFK Ružomberok): „We played with a well organized opponent who did exactly what he had. He closed all the premises for us and we have a significant problem with that. Nevertheless, we had all match dominance, we created a lot of shooting opportunities and many situations that could end in a chance or a goal, but were not completed. It is a problem that accompanies us throughout the season. I think that if we eliminate this shortcoming in our game, we can think about other successful seasons and years in Ružomberok, because the transformation of chances is alpha and omega. Today we saw again that in the end it was a big drama and it could have been decided much earlier. This match was about one goal, which did not fall for a long time and therefore it was so on the dragonflies, because the opponent was very dangerous from counterattacks, which is logical in our game mode, when we threw all our forces into the attack. I think that in the end a fair win of Ružomberok was born on the field and I am extremely happy. We have to prepare for the last match, the last step, I hope we can do it this time.“
