Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
My PC couldn't connect to the Ankaragucu link, so I've nicked Bellshill Kanka's report from his Ankaragucu Iskocya Blog.
An expected defeat, but things might have been different if Ankaragucu had played the match with 11 players on the field !
Ankaragucu took a 2000 strong away crowd to the game in Kayseri and they were on there feet after 25 minutes when Timur Ozgoz got onto the end of a nice through ball, the striker kept his calm before slotting the ball past Behram in the Kayseri goal. It was an excellent finish from the striker who made his long awaited debut.
Ankaragucu passed the ball about well and the defence with Umit Kurt in particular looking solid. Then came the changing point in the match. Goalscorer Ozgoz went up for a challenge with the Kayseri defender, the referee rushed to the striker before handing him a red card for an alleged elbow. Replays show the decision was wrong and there was no contact and no attempt at an elbow.
There is no doubting this changed the match. Ankaragucu put men behind the ball to try and hold out for the win and went in at half time 1-0 up.
The second half started and Kayseri took the game to Ankaragucu. After 54 minutes a nice through ball found Mehmet Ayaz and he took his time before putting the ball past Bayram Olgun. The young Ankaragucu team looked out on their feet at this point.
Kayseri continued to dominate and got the winning goal ten minutes from time. Poor defending down the left hand side from Ankaragucu allowed Kayseri in and the ball found new signing Gohou who put the ball into the back of the net.
A defeat for Yilmaz Ozlem in his first game in charge. He now must pick his players up and hope that tomorrow the transfer ban will be lifted. This young Ankaragucu team needs some experience to help them get through this difficult season.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
