Ankaragucu vs Polatli Bugsasspor match preview !

Ankaragucu return to action this Wednesday afternoon at home to Polatli Bugsasspor as they look to get back to winning after their disappointing defeat at Nazilli yesterday. Polatli are on a 3 game winning run having beaten Bozoyukspor, Iskenderun and Altay in their last 3 matches. Another difficult game for Ankaragucu as the visitors are looking to strengthen their playoff chances.

As i said on the match report for the Nazilli game, it was a disappointing result for Ankaragucu, they need to start winning these tricky games instead of just beating the teams at the bottom and middle half of the table. Fuat Aykuz needs to learn from his mistakes from that game with his decision to drop Levent Kale for the second game running. Levent should be brought straight back into the team to partner Umut up top. Ankaragucu look more dangerous with both forwards in the starting line up.

The last time the two sides met it was Levent Kale who scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win for Ankaragucu at Polatli. Gokhan Akkan was the man of the match that day having made some excellent saves to give Ankaragucu the 3 points.

Mehmet Erdem will be up against his former team and after a good start to his Ankaragucu career he will be looking to get one over his former team. Its hard to predict who will be in the starting line up with Fuat Aykuz. No one seems to be guaranteed a starting place which is a good thing, but he needs to find his best 11 and stick to that team. Ankaragucu are 3 points behind leaders Altinordu, but a win over Polatli can take them back joint top for at least 1 night. Altinordu travel to Altay on Thursday before the big game on Sunday between Ankaragucu and Altinordu.

This week is the biggest week of the season for Ankaragucu, their season could either be back on track or finished by 4pm on Sunday. Kick off between Ankaragucu vs Polatli is 1330 Turkish time and the game will be shown live on Baskent TV.

Come on AG lets get the 3 points !!

  1. Absolutely right Nadeem. These next few days will define Ankaragucu's season.

    With Altinordu looking like they are unlikely to drop points, it is imperative that Ankaragucu beat Busas tomorrow and follow up with another win against Altinordu. If not, the play-off lottery looms and who can guarantee winning that !

    You mentioned last week that the KO tomorrow was 11.30am, and I'm pleased to hear that the TFF have changed that to 1.30pm. Common sense prevails at last !

    As I mentioned before, The Hurriyet newspaper reported that the Altinordu match was scheduled for Monday. Is it now back to Sunday ?

    I'll be there tomorrow and will hopefully report on a much needed victory with Levent and Umut both in the starting line-up !!!
