“It was a great team performance, even if we had our problems in the first half. But I always believed we would manage it.”

Club sports chief Oliver Ruhnert said: “The team really this after such a season, but it was the toughest route they chose.

Hundreds of Union fans were waiting for their team to arrive before the game with reds flares and flags.

Before kick-off, the supporters put on a display in the crowd  to encourage the players to take their heart in their hands.
