Ankaragucu vs Altinordu match preview !

The time is almost here as the 10 month stadium ban has come to an end and the Ankaragucu fans can at last go and support their team in the 19 Mayis Stadium. Ankaragucu take on Altinordu on Sunday at 3pm in the top of the table clash after Ankaragucu won 1-0 at Polatli midweek. Another tough game for Ankaragucu but the fans will play a huge part in cheering the team onto victory.

Not only do the fans make a come back but Sir Eski Kanka Jim will make a return to doing the match report. For any new members Jims reports were one of the reasons why i started supporting Ankaragucu so it will be nice to have him back.

Altinordu have started the season as expected as one of the strongest sides in Lig 2, they are only 1 point behind Ankaragucu after a 0-0 draw with Altay midweek. They are capable of coming to the 19 Mayis and taking the 3 points so Ankaragucu will need to be at their best both at the back and up top.

It will be interesting to see if Hayati Soldas sticks with top scorer Umut Nayir or opts for Levent Kale who was the hero midweek with the winning goal against Polatli. Key players again for Ankaragucu will be Gokhan Akkan who has had a fantastic start to the season, midfield maestro Mehmet Cakir and youngsters Hasan Ayaroglu and Umut Nayir.

Their was still no place in the team for Aydin Toscali on Wednesday against Polatli as he is not match fit, also missing was Emre Tasdemir, Volkan Geyik, Mert Erdogan and Veli Torun. The match will kick off at 3pm on Sunday so please get to the stadium early Kankas and cheer the team onto victory !


  1. Yes Nadeem, it will definitely be a tight match and Ankaragücü need to score the early goal to put Altinordu under pressure. Hopefully the huge crowd will play a part in inspiring the team to greater heights and intimidating the Altinordu players !

    The Kankas will go to the stadium 2 hours before KO to ensure entry. Missing this historic occasion would be a sin !

    Report will be up on Monday. I have a feeling that we will be celebrating till late on Sunday night !!!
