Jedzik Wary Ahead of Kyiv Clash

16 November 2004

CEZ Nymburk are undefeated in the Czech Republic and the FIBA Europe League but coach Michal Jezdik knows the perfect record is in danger with BC Kyiv coming to town on Wednesday.

Nymburk followed up their opening week victory over CSKA Sofia with a narrow 84-82 triumph at defending champions UNICS Kazan in the second round of the European competition.

"We would like to continue our undefeated run," Jezdik said ahead of Wednesday's game.

"Our win in Kazan will mean nothing if we lose against Kyiv at home."

Kyiv have prevailed in two of their first three games but they were hammered 96-65 by Turkish outfit Fenerbahce in the second round.

"Kyiv have a good team despite their defeat at home to Fenerbahce," Jezdik insisted.

"They won over Rabotnicki and there is no question that it will be a very tough game.

"I am happy that all my players are in order and nobody is injured. We all are looking forward for this game and believe in a good result."

Nymburk beat BK Opava 95-55 on Saturday for their sixth straight victory in the Czech top flight.
