Ankaragucu 4-2 Samsunspor match report !
Ankaragucu took all 3 points today in a 6 goal thriller at Samsunspor. The victory makes it back to back wins for Ankaragucu for the first time since April 2011 when they won 5-3 at home to Bucaspor and a 4-1 win at Istanbul BBS in the Turkish Super Lig. The win today now gives Ankaragucu an outside chance of staying in the PTT Lig.
Timur Bayram Ozgoz was the hero of the day with a sensational hat trick and 1 assist for substitute Umut Nayir to give the big traveling support a memorable day. The Ankaragucu fans were on their best behaviour today as both sets of fans sang each others songs. Indeed Samsunspor fans even gave the Ankaragucu players a standing ovation as they walked off the field at the end of the match.
Damon mentioned that some Ankaragucu fans were locked outside the stadium as too many fans travelled to the match and their were no more seats available. An incredible show of loyalty again by the Ankaragucu fans. Its just a shame the fans cant show the same support at home due to the stadium ban.

Man of the Match - Timur Bayram Ozgoz
A fantastic performance from Ankaragucu who really look a difference team in the second half of the season. Mustafa Kaplan has done a fantastic job and if he can keep this young team together then next season will be successful no matter what division we are in. The team as a who were excellent today, Orhan Evci had one of his best games, but the man of the match Timur Ozgoz was sensational. Timur works so hard for the team and today he got his reward.
So 6 points from 2 games and Ankaragucu are right back in it. Next up is Boluspor a week on Monday, lets take one game at a time but if we play the way we have the last two games then there is a great chance of making it 3 wins in a row.
