Russian league leaders CSKA Moscow's Swedish midfielder Pontus Wernbloom, who scored the only goal in clash with Terek Grozny at the weekend, had said that he believes the team are capable of keeping their lead through to end of the season.
CSKA are currently top of the Russian Premier League with 60 points from 27 matches, three points ahead of defending champions Zenit St Petersburg. "The battle for the title is going at full swing but this was easy to predict," the 26-year-old was quoted as saying by his club press service.
"We have dropped points in recent matches but are still determined to finish this season on top of the table. The champions Zenit are chasing us closely. They're a very strong outfit but we're strong as well. For us, every one of the remaining matches is just like a final. We have no right to slip-up. But I believe we have enough power and spirit to win the title."
This season Wernbloom, who has been playing as a defensive midfielder, has scored four goals, every one of which was a match-winner for CSKA.
"I'm happy with every one of my goals as the players of my type usually do not score too often," said Vernbloom, who netted his first goal for CSKA in his debut match for the club in the 2012 Champions League round of 16 clash with Real Madrid.
"But any individual record is nothing if compared to the team's achievement. We are all set to finish this season in high spirits. The team has played quality football this season and the chemistry in the dressing room is really good. All we need is just to come into every of the remaining matches at full concentration and responsibility."
