Former Spartak Nalchik man expressed his desire to see his old club come out of the danger zoned in the wake of their latest Russian Premier League defeat against Selmashi.
Hector Bracamonte and Kornel Saláta’s goals ensured FC Rostov win the latest Russian Premier League tie 2-1 against Spartak Nalchik on Sunday at Olimp-2, Rostov-on-don.
The host team took a 2-0 first-half lead but the Orly ensured a tense second period as Adnan Zahirović got one goal back in the 61st minute. However, Rostov retained their one-goal lead until the end of the match as they enjoyed
numerical advantage on the pitch.
In the aftermath of the outcome, Valentin Filatov has expressed his delight upon the latest win and urged his teammates to extend their decent domestic run if they are to play in the Russian first division next season.
The former White-reds defender played against his old team for the first time since making his move to the Selmashi during the summer transfer window last year. He put in an eye-catching defensive performance against his former
club, helping Rostov move well outside of the drop zone.
The Selmashi recorded their second win of the third league round, having already defeated FC Krylia Sovetov Samara earlier this month. As things stand they are seven points clear of the danger zone.
Filatov admitted that Rostov have been struggling during the third league round and urged his teammates to help claim more points or else they will find themselves at the bottom of the league table.
The former Zenit St. Petersburg defender went on to reflect his sympathy for the Eagles, expressing his desire to see the Nalchik-based club leave the drop zone as soon as possible. He wished them luck for the remaining games of
the ongoing season.
“I have spent a memorable time at Nalchik. So, I am sorry that Spartak are in a terrible condition on the league table. Though I am glad that today Rostov managed to win, I am feeling bad for the Eagles.” Filatov was quoted as
