Partizan boss Aleksandar Stanojevic on upcoming game:
-This is round 17 derby, a game against one exceptional team on the form rise. Vojvodina is extremely disciplined side but I believe we will play this match in a right fashion, as we played most of the season so far. We need support in every sense of it. Vojvodina is intense team with exceptional transition play, they have a good flank breaks and reaction to flank balls. Their coach imposed discipline on them, his trademark work style. We are aware of all their qualities and prepare for this game accordingly.
You all know how much Natcho means to us, leading the team with his character. He is extremely important player for us. He`s undergoing medical tests in Israel, we spoke on the phone and our club doctor is in touch with him on a daily basis. In absence of Natcho, someone else is going to have to take this responsibility. In general, we are Partizan and we play as a team.
