Ankaragucu vs Korfez FK match preview !
A tough match awaits Ankaragucu this Sunday as they travel to the city of Kocaeli as they take on Korfez FK. The home side are undefeated this season having drawn against Bozuyukspor and Iskenderun while winning 3-1 at Altay. They narrowly lost against Antalyaspor at home in the Turkish Cup on wednesday 2-1 in extra time.
Ankaragucu are on a 3 game winning run and will take that form into the match knowing they will need to raise their game from the last two performances. After a stunning 6-0 win at Eyupspor, Ankaragucu scraped wins against Diyarbakir and Karaman BB.
Hayati Soldas has given himself the task of deciding his starting 11 after Levent Kale scored a double midweek. Umut Nayir has 3 goals in 2 games and will be disappointed if he is dropped, while Kale put in a match winning performance against Karaman BB. Both similar in style as they are tall target men making things even more difficult for the manager to chose.
Emre Tasdemir looks like he is going to play in a more attacking role this season which should allow Mehmet Tasci to come in and take his place back in the first team after his return from International duty. Aydin Toscali and Ibrahim Sahin are getting closer to fitness which should see them feature at some point. Kaan Kanak and Aytac Oden are also nursing injuries.
Ankaragucu have looked good in attack this season but will need to improve in defence, at times the team has looked vulnerable to the counter attack which better teams would have taken advantage of. On paper this should be a tough game, but Ankaragucu have the quality to go to Korfez and win. We shouldn't be too disappointed with a draw but if we want to win this league these are the games you must win.
