Current SEHA GSS league's runner up, Vardar will tomorrow play game versus Borac Banja Luka without six players ,but even in that situation for Macedonian team, victory is only option.
Some players will not be at tomorrow's game, mostly beacause of injuries but some even due to the completion of documents for obtaining a working visa. Vardar will miss goalkeeper Peter Angelov, wingers Vladimir Nedanovski and Timur Dibirov, back players Alex Dushebaev and Alexei Rastvorcev and line player Michael Chipurin. But team from Skopje is again favorite, and now each player available should do his best for the win.
Bosnian team has this season had financial and organizational problems, and this has surely reflected in their form and results. However, coach Andon Boškovski has respect for rival.
"Borac is name in handball, it's one of the biggest handball clubs on Balkan. At the start of the season they were in a difficult financial situation and therefore started with five defeats. But, they have passed it and are now slowly returning to form. Therefore, the opponent should not be underestimated and must be played with 100 % of our possibilities. It must not be forgotten that guests so far have players of the caliber of Nikolic and Trivundza , which means nothing is going to be easy, said Boskovski.
Besides Nikolic who has played in Vardar, goalkeeper Mario Blazevic has also experienced playing in Skopje in past. On the opposite side Stefan Terzic now member of Vardar,was in last stwo and a half seasons part of a team from Banja Luka.
"We know that Borac is a team with great tradition in handball, and there I spent two and a half years. They always work well, train well and fight every battle to the end. The opponent in this game has nothing to lose and I think we have to be concentrated to achieve the best possible result. It is a team of experienced handball players and we must not underestimate them if we want to win, said Terzic.
For Jani Cop, Borac's new coach this will be debut on the team's bench. Although he is aware that Vardar is favorite in this match he is happy because of the fact that Borac's form is rising.
- I am satisfied with the atmosphere in my team, and I am aware that Vardar is a big favorite in this duel. We have to be really good if we want to play with them or even catch a point. All players are ready and we're traveling to Skopje in acomplete squad, said Jani Cop.
