Pavel Ulyanko:
We played against a very difficult opponent. We had a change to cling on to something in the game. At the end, we were only four or five points behind but then conceded a couple of easy points, which led to the defeat. The team of such a class as Nizhny Novgorod would not let this victory slip away being 10 points in front.
