And after seeing Billy Kee pop up with a late winner, Coleman said: "The players were magnificent. We rolled our sleeves up and came out in the second half and gave it a real go.
"I thought on the balance of play we were the better side and good value for the win. The players always work hard and they are very enthusiastic.
"We started brightly and could have scored four goals but then we have our keeper sent off. You start to think that luck is against you but we stuck at it, kept going and got our reward."
