Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Yesterday's score -
Manisa 0 ANKARAGUCU 1
The surprise package in early season, Manisa, is now a pale shadow of the team who were riding high at the top of the league for the first month or so. They are now classed as a `mid-table team` and are currently in 8th position in the league.
That said, we should not be too euphoric about yesterday's result. However, 3 points are 3 points and for that we must be grateful !
There is still lots of water to pass under the bridge before the season ends, so each point will be vital in the fight to avoid relegation, and with ANKARAGUCU on 7 points above 3rd bottom placed club Denizli, it will be a fight for survival !
Not much said in The Hurriyet this morning about the match, except that `it dispersed the dark clouds over them this season`. Mmmmmm, yes, I suppose we could say that, after all, it was their 1st victory outside Ankara this season !!
The vital goal was scored by `Mr 90 Minutes`, Abdurrahman Derili just before the half-time whistle.
ANKARAGUCU is at home against Gaziantep next weekend 24/25 February. More details of that nearer the time when known.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
