Matko on the match
Preki was not in the country on Sunday as he was in Serbia tending to some sort of family emergency. In his place was Mike Matkovich, the club's assistant coach.
Matko, as he is known to his players, and Preki took care of the starting lineups as they were in communication throughout the day. Not sure if Matko will have to explain much to Preki or if Preki watched the game in Serbia via the internet or something.
Preki was certainly missed but the squad did well without him. I did think that Matko sort of threw everyone out there after the Revs went up but I don't know that Preki would have done differently.
Here's the audio.
