Partizan won Mladost Lucani 3-0 away with goals from Markovic (`52), Menig (`78) and Natcho (`90+1) with youngster Jevremovic making his cameo debut coming in for Diabate in injury time.
We spoke to one of the goalscorers, Bibars Natcho, after the game.
“It was a very important win for us and we need to keep on moving step by step, game by game, win by win. Our confidence is back and we have to use that all the way to the end of the season, to win the next game before the international break and get some rest afterwards. Our aim is to win all the remaining games”, said 35-year-old midfielder.
This was your 12th goal of the season. You achieved the same feat with CSKA Moscow back in the season 2014/15.
“It`s nice to have good stats and to score goals but it`s win that matters at the end of the day. I hope I`ll score more goals in our wins”.
Partizna hosts Radnik Surdulica next. We dropped quite a lot of points at home this season.
“We are aware that we lost many points at our ground but we have to get over it and move on. Radnik is a new game and it`s all on us, how we enter the game”.
You are joining Israeli national team over the international break?
“Exactly, no rest for me”, said Bibars Natcho.
We also spoke Svetozare Markovic who scored the game`s opener early in the second half.
“At the moment, it`s important we win and gain confidence as such. As for our performance…we can always play better but, as I said, it`s all about winning now. Our confidence is back and it resulted in a comprehensive 3-0 win. We have five days to get ready for the next game and do our best to win it at home. That`s really important to us”, said 22-year-old centre-back.
Partizan is home to Radnik Surdulica on Friday.
