José Gomes: We will need to be very patient in the second leg

The two managers spoke to the gathered media after Wednesday's first leg cup match.

: DVTK made two changes to the side that started Sunday's league match. They did not really surprise us with the way they played. They play really well the football that they build on, with plenty of passing in the midfield area. They then try to be very dangerous up front with their two forwards. I would not say that I am totally satisfied with today's result, due to the fact that for example, if I would compare today's game with our Hungarian cup match with Győr, then I would add that Győr managed to beat us with two counter attacks, despite the amount of chances we created. We did not allow the opponents to have such chances today, but we cannot be unhappy from the point of view that this was the first part of a 180 minutes battle. Naturally we would have liked to have won and we had chances, but unfortunately we did not succeed in this today. We need to remain patient for the return match in Diosgyőr, and have more possession of the ball, and create chances from these situations.


Tomiszlav Szivics: We closed down our opponents from the first minute, not allowing Vidi to have any space. This takes a lot out of the players, but I feel that after Sunday, everyone gave more than 100%. Futacs coming off gave us problems, but we were still close to winning even after this. We played with discipline, and the players did what we spoke about, so I am satisfied with both the players and the result. This was the first half and the tie will be settled in Miskolc next week.
