Marko Nikolic: I want us to control the game in the same way we did last week

The Videoton head coach looks forward to his sides visit to Ujpest on Saturday.

„I know that it could perhaps be interesting for the media that two Serbian manager's come head to head. However, there is nothing new in this for us as my teams have played many games against sides managed by Serbian coaches (laughter). The summer game that was drawn does not really have any impact on today's game. That is partly becuase that game came in between our two matches with Bordeaux in the Europa League. Our opponents are a good side that deserve a higher place in the table based on their performances. The have good players especially in attack with the likes of Novothny, Daniel Nagy, Zsoter and Paulijevics. We are talking about an interesting team and a club with tradition that have many supporters so things will not be easy against Ujpest. We have prepared for them over the last couple of days. We will have Istvan Kovacs out through injury and Danko Lazovic missing through suspension. All the other players are ready for the game, so I hope that we will be able to control the match in the same way we did against Puskas Academy. We will remain top of the league if we win this game" - commented Marko Nikolic ahead of his sides game at Ujpest.
