Ankaragucu vs Karabukspor Match Preview !

This weekend will see the 19 Mayis host Ankaragucu vs Karabukspor in a match that is a must win for both sides. Ankaragucu are yet to win a game this season, and Karabukspor haven't won in there last three matches.

Ankaragucu will go into the game with a bit of confidence gained from there performance two weeks ago at Samsunspor. A 2-2 draw was a disappointment in the end when we deserved to take all three points.

Karabukspor lost at home to Eskisehirspor 2-1 who themselves were also on a poor run of form. The main players in the Karabuk side are Romanian midfielder Florian Cernat and Luton Shelton there Jamaican Striker. Ex Ankaragucu players Bilal Kisa and Muhammet Hanifi are also part of the squad.

With both sides struggling in the relegation zone, they will be both hoping to take three points and kick start there seasons. Ankaragucu need to win the game to keep the gap between them and the teams just outside the drop at a minimum. Cengiz Topal has already said the team in January will be a completely different side as we will add to the squad.

Ankaragucu will hold a Press Conference on Wednesday and then the elections will be held on the 18th of November, so an interesting week ahead. In transfer news, Trabzonspor have added Ozgur Cek and Ugur Ucar to there wanted list in January, and Bursaspor are interested in Hurriyet Gucer. Hopefully we will keep the mentioned players and add to the squad instead.

Its also unknown weather Jan Rajnoch will return to the team at the weekend or if he will remain back home in the Czech Republic. The starting line up will be interesting to see if Ziya Dogan will go with Atilla Garhan up front after his goal last week. I think the boy deserves his chance and it will allow Tonia and Serdar to play in the side areas to support him.

Tough match again, the last time we had a good performance at Trabzon, it was followed up by a poor one at home to Orduspor, so im not going to predict a score this week. Good Luck Ankaragucu and lets get that first win under our belts !!


  1. "Cengiz Topal has already said the team in January will be a completely different side as we will add to the squad."

    I'll believe it when I see it. Let's hope for the best this week and next half.

    Yes Nadeem. Good idea NOT to give any predictions this week !!

    Agree with Damon. Seeing is believing ! Let's just concentrate on one game at a time at the moment and try to finish the 1st half of the season in a 'reasonable' league position to kick-start the season in the 2nd half.

    This Saturday the KO time is 1pm.

    Gencler is away to Sivas on Sunday and also KO at 1pm.

    All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

  3. I don't trust anyone from Ankaragucu management these days. I hear Melih Gokcek has said we will be an amateur team in 4 years time.

    That may well be the case Melih, but id rather be in the amateur league with honour than in the TSL with a corrupt scumbag like you as president.

  4. so Sami Altinuva is the new president elected today ? was quite a show as the riot police had to be called in.
