Miroslav Djukic after the game:

– It`s always good to win point away. I`m very pleased with our second half performance, with our attitude. We looked a bit frightened in the first half, lacked aggression but dominated in the second half. I`m pleased overall. We made pressure in the second half and had a good pace.

We scored after excellent build-up but then retreated as we are supposed to defend something…We should allow that to happen again. The way we conceded was unacceptable too. We still lack European experience. We are Partizan, we have to attack not to let opponent dominate the proceedings.
