Ankaragucu vs Polatli Bugsasspor match preview !

Ankaragucu make the short trip to Polatli on Wednesday afternoon for the local derby against Polatli Bugsasspor in what will be a tough encounter. The home side go into the game undefeated having drawn 4 games and won 1. They drew 1-1 at Altay at the weekend and have shown they will be a difficult outfit to beat.

Both Ankaragucu and Polatli have come under the spotlight over the years due to the Gokceks being involved with the clubs. Polatli are known as the team of Melih Gokcek as are Ankaraspor and the kick off time of 3pm Turkish time will at least keep any trouble to a minimum as most people will still be at their work.

Polatli have spent most of their history in the lower leagues and were unlucky not to be promoted last season but for losing in the playoffs. Mustafa Keceli is their probably their most well known player haven played for Trabzonspor and Denizlispor. They usually play their home games in the dreaded Stadium of Hell the Yenikent.

As Ante discussed in his match report Ankaragucu have shown sign of improvement, but need to sort themselves out at the back. For me I'm still not sure about the new coach Hayati Soldas and his team selections. We have to praise the emergence of Umut Nayir though, the big striker has caught the eye this season with 5 goals in as many games. Ibrahim Sahin and Levent Kale are both keeping him on his toes though and the youngster knows he needs to stay focused.

In other good news, the match will be shown live on Baskent TV, however with the kick off time being 3pm its doubtful that many of the Kanka group will get to see the match. Im predicting a 1-1 draw between the 2 sides.


  1. well said nadeem...didnt know there was a bit of history and feeling to this one ! should be a tough match...ill do my best with this one guys...though ill probably be in a taxi trying to live strea it !!!

  2. Yes, it will impossible for any of us to tüne-in for this one. However, I'll be on Facebook as soon as I get home.

    Ante and I are singing from the same hymn sheet, ie, we want the coach to bring in Aydin to shore-up the defence. Even if he's not 100% fit, his presence will be immense for the young guys around him and he can do what he does best, ie, lead from the back.

    It's almost a 'home' match for Ankaragücü, so I'm going for a win. The team are on fire and if Hayati Bey sends out an attacking formation then I believe we can pot 2 or even 3 goals.

    That's optimism for you !

  3. you are very optimist Jim lol, ill settle for even a 1-0 win.

    Sivasspor in the cup away on Tuesday 29th October

  4. Great prediction Nady !!

    I'm really pissed off it's an away match in Sivas. We always seem to be eff-yoo-kayd by the TFF !

    Let's hope Aydin is back to his best by then, and if we don't win, at least bring them back here for a replay !
