Mendilibar: Eibar 'showed guts' to win

Eibar boss Jose Luis Mendilibar has praised the 'guts' his 10-men showed to win in the last minute at Granada.

Sergi Enrich struck in injury time to give the Basque side a last-gasp win after playing for an hour with 10-men after goalkeeper Asier Riesgo was sent-off in the first half.

"We had the guts to attack in the final minutes, even though we knew it meant we could lose," explained Mendilibar.

"Until the red card we had better possession and position than Granada, so we deserved to be ahead at half time (through Pedro Leon's strike).

"Our game plan had to be completely changed so the players showed great adaptability to pull off the result."
