Today with the 2: 0 triumph over Shkupi as a guests, Vardar secured a place in the 1/4 final of the Macedonian Cup. Thanks to the goals from Nikolov and Maksimov, the "red-black" after 1: 1 from the first match, returned with a victory and booked a place in the next round of the Cup.
After the match, the head coach Cedomir Janevski expressed his impressions of the game and the victory of the team.
"All congratulations for the players, because in four matches we got three wins and one draw. And in a month that's very difficult to play. The players were maximally engaged, focused and mentally well prepared. In the period when all the other teams were on vacation, they trained for longer period, and on this kind of field showed a winning mentality. As far as the match is concerned, it is very difficult to build a game when you have an opponent who has a defensive formation. I do not want anyone to misunderstand me, everyone has their own philosophy and strategy. In the second half, we were far better, we created chances, scored goals, and I think we deserved to go further. Now we are left to take a rest from this hard half-season, and then to prepare for the spring part of the championship, "Janevski said after the duel against Shkupi and Vardar's 2:0 victory.
