The "Lights" at the beginning of this season do not show the speed that fans expect from them. Within the framework of the national championship, 4 duels have already been played. It is worth noting the fact that after 4 rounds, the team has only 2 points in its asset, which it managed to score thanks to two draws. Tournament points were obtained in face-to-face meetings with Krasnodar (2:2) and Dynamo (2:2). In the matches against "Akhmat" (1:2) and CSKA (1:4), defeats were recorded. Although in those games, "Torch" did not look bad at all and claimed points.
Ural is absolutely the worst team in the first four rounds. There are no points scored in the asset of the bumblebees, and therefore the club from Yekaterinburg is the only club that has not scored a single point. In this regard, Igor Shalimov was dismissed from the team. The 16th place is not the result that the club's management and fans hoped for. Moreover, in the first four matches the team scored only 1 goal. Defeats also happened in games with CSKA (0:2), Orenburg (0:3), Krasnodar (1:3) and Spartak (0:2).

Ural looks like a pale shadow against this background, and it is unlikely that with a new mentor they will be able to get points in the first match. Moreover, he is visiting.
