Kasımpaşa beat Mersin 2-1 at the Mersin Arena to win their third consecutive game and move into joint third place alongside Galatasaray and Başakşehir on 29 points.
On-loan Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo started for the Istanbul minnows and put on yet another fine performance for the second best defensive side in the league who have conceded just 13 goals all season.
Omeruo won five aerial duals and also four important clearances as well as two tackles. The Nigerian international also made the second highest number passes in his team (47) in what was his 11th game of the season.
