Marjan Ilievski: Our problems will make us even more motivated

KK Blokotehna-NB finished the Regular season in second place but is coming to SIGAL UNIQA Balkan League Final Four with problems. The competition′s best player Danilo Mijatovic and his teammated Goran Glavchev were injured a week ago while Vojche Lefkovski is also out from some time. Still the Gevgelija squad will fight to win as this was underlined also be head coach Marjan Ilievski. Here is what he had to say before the semifinal game against BC Academic Bultex 99:

 

"The feeling about being in the Final Four is very nice both for the players and for everyone in the club. However we are in handicap at the moment because of the injuries to players who are the ones looking out for our collective performance and chemistry on the court - Mijatovic and Glavchev. By adding to them the absence of Lefkovski and the fact that we couldn′t do any changes to the roster, we are coming to Tirana with a shorter rotation. However we′ll go out on the court with what we have and believing that those players will be motivated to give even above their maximum to win. Of course we want to go to the final but first we′ll have a very tough opponent in Academic Bultex 99. 


To qualify for the Final Four is a success but there are more factors that need to happen in order to win it. At the moment they are not in our favour but this should serve as double motivation for us all and hopefully we can have a bit of sports luck as well.


As a team which entered last this competition and given the dynamics of the games, we surely had some letdowns in our game. Generally I′m happy with the bigger part of the season but if there is one game that I would like to play again, it′s the one against Academic in Plovdiv."
