THE TURKISH CUP - GROUP `A` STANDINGS

Greeting Kankas and Kankies.

A very interesting scenario is developing in ANKARAGUCU's Group `A` in the Turkish Cup.

Last night Sekiztrash beat Ankaraspor 3-1 (I didn't know whether to laugh or cry !!), and Rize `teaboys` beat Diski 2-1.

Rize scored the winner in the 4th minute of time added on which could come back to haunt ANKARAGUCU at the end of the day !

So, with the next Group matches coming up next Wednesday, the standings are as follows -

Besiktas P3 W2 D0 L1 F8 A3 Pts 6
Rize P2 W2 D0 L0 F4 A2 Pts 6
A'spor P2 W1 D0 L1 F3 A3 Pts 3
A'gucu P2 W1 D0 L1 F3 A3 Pts 3
Diski P3 W0 D0 L3 F2 A9 Pts 0

As I said in last weekend's match report, all the pressure is now on ANKARAGUCU after the unnecessary loss to Ankaraspor last Saturday. Only wins at home to Sekiztrash on Wednesday and away to Rize the following Wednesday will keep them in contention.

For those of you with long memories, it was goal difference which eliminated ANKARAGUCU last season !!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
