“One mistake, one slice of bad luck and we would have blown our lead.
“I am just happy we won, it was a tough game. Mersin were full of confidence and they asked serious questions from us.
“We had to make tactical changes and really prepare well for this game, it was by no means easy, Mersin are a very good side.”
