Okan Buruk: We exploited Sivasspor’s weak defence


Gaziantepspor manager Okan Buruk has praised his side for their 2-1 victory over Sivasspor in the Turkish Cup.


Gaziantepspor came from behind to win with goals coming from Sen and Yilmaz.

Buruk spoke with reporters after the game.

“The group games are tough to play during a busy schedule in the league however, it gives some players who haven’t played much football this season a chance to prove themselves,” Buruk said.

“Its also important to let our young players play in these games.

“With regards to the game, we played against the strongest team in the group. Despite conceding first we didn’t lose shape and managed to equalise then take the lead.

“Sivasspor have one of the strongest attacks in the league but we knew about their defensive frailties and exploited┬áthem.”

Gaziantepspor sit in second place in Group A following their victory.
