Ankaragucu vs Adanaspor match preview !

Bit of news just in before we look at Monday nights game at Adanaspor. Ankaragucu have promoted A2 players Emre Tasdemir, Emir Turan and Eren Ozmen to the first team after signing professional contracts. Emre Tasdemir is a very highly rated left back who had offers to sign for Trabzonspor, Galatasaray and Bursaspor. Siaka Bangura will also play with the A2 team until the transfer ban is lifted after arriving from Istanbul BBS. Furkan Guraslan continues to train with the club. The club have also taken a Nigerian player on trial.

Back to matters on the pitch, Ankaragucu travel to Adanaspor this coming Monday night as the club look to stay in the battle against relegation. After the disappointing defeat at home to Kayseri Erciyesspor at the weekend, Ankaragucu will be looking to bounce back by taking something from the game. Adanaspor are in the playoff places at the moment and won 1-0 thanks to a late Chuks Nwogbo goal the last time both sides met.

Although Ankaragucu lost 3-1 at home to Kayseri at the weekend, there were lots of positives to take from the game. For the majority of the match the team defended well and created many chances late on in the game. Enes Kubat came into the team and looked a very good player. Having Emre Tasdemir in the squad will be a huge boost to the side.

Timur Ozgoz will be looking to get back on the scoresheet at the weekend after having a disappointing game at the weekend by his usual high standards. The likes of Gokhan Erdogan and Mert Erdogan will also be called upon as they can be match winners for the side. Kaan Kanak of late has been one of the teams best performers and he will also be an important player for the team.

Ankaragucu are running out of time in this battle against relegation, they need to start winning games and putting a run of wins together. Rivals Goztepe have done exactly that and are now clear of the drop  zone. Adanaspor have a good side and will have former Ankaragucu duo Koray Colgacen and Metin Akan in their squad.

No predictions from me this week, a huge game for Ankaragucu, lets hope we can get the three points !


  1. Well said Nadeem.

    We are all out of predictions at this stage and looking for (don't want to say ... 'miracles') some good fortune and perhaps some luck !

    At this point in the season it really is a MUST WIN match otherwise we are going to be 'cut loose'.

  2. Muatafa Kaplan speaking today believes the team can take something from this game, Looking forward to seeing some of the new young players.
