Ankaragucu vs Eskisehirspor Match Preview !

Ankaragucu take on Eskisehirspor on Saturday morning at the 19 Mayis Stadium in Ankara.

The game will be played with Ankaragucu fans only in the stadium as the Turkish FA have kept the away team ban for this match due to crowd trouble.

Ankaragucu finally scored there first goals in nine games last week, but still lost 3-2 at Karabukspor. As the weeks go by the youngsters seem to be improving and gaining more confidence. The players can go into the match with there heads held high, as they are doing Ankaragucu proud playing for the club with no wages.

Eskisehirspor got back to winning ways last week with a good 2-1 win at home to Fenerbahce. Former manager Michael Skibbe left the club in January as he took the management job at Hertha Berlin. He was replaced with former Ankaragucu manager Ersun Yanal who has had a slow start as Eskisehir boss. He will be hoping to call on Key players Diomansy Kamara, Alper Potuk and Burhan Eser for this match as they look to push on for a European Place. Also in the Eskisehirspor squad will be ex Ankaragucu duo Hurriyet Gucer and Ediz Bahtiyaroglu who signed for the club in January.

The last time the two sides met Eskisehirspor won 3-2 at home. They were 2-0 up at half time through goals from Kamara and an own goal from Ozgur Cek. Ankaragucu came out in the second half and drew level through Atilla and Ergin and should have won the game but for an open goal miss from Murat Duruer. Eskisehir scored a late goal through Diego Angelo to win the game.

Ankaragucu are now officially relegated to Bank Aysa and the young players will go out and give there all in front of the Ankaragucu tribunes in another tough match. Eskisehir may be to strong for Ankaragucu on the day.

Other news from today, New Turkish FA President Yildirm Demiroren shrugged of suggestions of a new 22 team Super Lig. And Genclerbirligi will work with the Democratic Republic of Congo to help them build a profesional football league.


  1. I'd be supporting Ankaragucu anyway in this match, but as a Gencler fan I'd love it if you could get this one. We need to get some points difference between us.

    Great preview Bellshill.

    Lets hope Ankaragucu can do Gencler a favour this week Oz. I think the best we can hope for is a draw


  3. Mmmmm ..... I have a sneaky feeling that Ankaragucu could cause an upset tomorra. As I said in last week's report, the pressure is off the lads now, and there is only one way to play this match and that is to ...... attack ....... shit or bust !!
