Please press f5 for updates throughout the match
1835: Just over 1 hour until kick off as Ankaragucu take on Adanaspor at Adana in the Turkish PTT Lig. According to various Ankaragucu facebook pages, Mehmet Yiginer will announce before kick off the outcome of the transfer ban. An announcement was expected at 1300 today but as of yet nothing has been announced.
1855: Ankaragucu go into the game bottom of the table and 9 points adrift of the teams above them, three points would take a bit of pressure off the young players as the club looks to lift the transfer ban. Adanaspor are in the playoff places and will look close the gap on the top two to one point.
Adanaspor won the last match between the two teams 1-0 in Ankara at the start of the season thanks to an 85th minute goal from Chuks Nwogbo.

2000: Game is underway !!
1- Bright start from Ankaragucu winning a corner after only 1 minute, Timur looking sharp up top.
10 - Even game so far, Timur nearly on the end of a through ball but Tolgahan comes out to collect the ball.
17 - A message of support from our Gencler friends as Oz Kanka messages Haydi Ankaragucu !
21 - Adanaspor living dangerously as Teoman nearly in on goal and Tolgahan makes a mess of the clearance. Ankaragucu growing in confidence but Adana look dangerous on the attack.
24 - Sedat fires his shot over the bar from about 30 yards for Adana.
25 - Kaan kanak goes inches wide with his free kick, so close as Ankaragucu nearly take the lead.
32 - Ankaragucu counter attack ends when Kaan makes the wrong decision when he puts his shot wide with men in support. Again encouraging signs from Ankaragucu.
37 - Kaan whips in a dangerous free kick but no one can get on the end of it, Ankaragucu look comfortable but need to put the ball in the net.
45 - Teoman so close to giving Ankaragucu the lead, lovely cross into the box from Mert which Teoman headed past Tolgahan but the ball went inches past the post.
Half Time - Adanaspor 0-0 Ankaragucu, excellent spirited first half performance from Ankaragucu, but as so often the case Ankaragucu just can't get that breakthrough. Adanaspor will be looking to up their performance in the second half as they showed nothing going forward. Bayram will be pretty happy that he had a quiet first 45 minutes.
