Ketsbaia eager to beat Pyunik heat
Tuesday 22 July 2008by John Leonidou from Nicosia

Anorthosis Famagusta FC coach Temuri Ketsbaia warned his players not
to get "into any hot water" as they defend a 1-0 lead away at FC

Off the woodwork
The Cypriot champions missed a host of chances to put the tie beyond
their opponents in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League first
qualifying round tie. Three efforts crashed against the woodwork
before a late penalty from Nikolaos Frousos finally broke the
deadlock, and the Georgian coach is taking nothing for granted.

Fierce heat
"We could have made sure of our qualification in the first leg", said
40-year-old Ketsbaia. "Now we have to win it again in Armenia." The
former Newcastle United FC attacker is expecting a difficult match in
Yerevan. "It won’t be easy because of the hot weather and the fact
that we are playing in the afternoon," he said. "We need to be
cautious and not put ourselves into any hot water during the game."
