The atmosphere at Cherkizovo is really stretched. Lokomotiv has fallen in a deep crisis and it seems that nothing can be done to save this situation. At the same time, tomorrow 'Railroaders' will face the most in form team of RPL: Krasnodar. They haven't lost neither a game in 2015 (5 victories and 3 draws), underlining the success of Galitskiy's project. 

In this moment, Krasnodar is probably the worst team to play against for Loko. The arrival of Shirokov has brought a lot of quality, while Mamaev has been playing an amazing second part of the season as Pereyra and Kaleshin. In particular, the last one scored also two rounds ago the goal of 2:3 in the derby against Kuban'. However, Kononov can't rely on Joazinho, who got injured against Ural and will return only for the RPL 2015/16. This is a big loss that strengthened the Belorussian coach to use Petrov as a left back due also the absence of Polish defender Jędrzejczyk. For tomorrow's match, 'Biky' have only a doubt: Izmaylov or Wanderson? In our opinion, former Lokomotiv midfielder should start to guarantee better skills in the center of the pitch. 

On the other side, Bozovic has recovered two key players such as Abaev and Pejcinovic: both trained with the main group during last days, however they shouldn't start from the first minutes. Furthermore, Mykhalyk will return from the disqualification and probably will be in the starting line-up. The Montenegrin should confirm the usual XI, with Sheshukov that should advance to the midfield to replace Tarasov, who got a red card in the last minutes of the game against Ufa. 

Searching a bit of support to get over this though situation, captain Guilherme made also an appeal for fans: "Guys, I'd like to speak about this. The team is unhappy like you. We understand it. After the game against Ufa we had a seat and spoke one to another. During this conversation, there were emotions that I think will help us in the next matches. We know as players what to do on the pitch. However, in the last game... we weren't lucky and something didn't work. I want that fans know this: we'll do everything is possible on the pitch to return winning."

Will it be enough?
