A tough day at the office
In the end it was all fairly easy and Gencler stay at the top of their Turkish cup group
Genclerbirligi 4 - 0 Cizrespor
A couple of hundred fans for Gencler and, impressively, a couple of busload of fans from Cizre were at the Cebeci stadium to watch a procession.
As you can see in the photo I was unable to attend and so hogged the bandwidth at work. As predicted, Gencler put out a “youth” team with the only regular player in the starting eleven being Petrovic.
And it was lanky midfielder who scored first with a penalty after about 30 minutes.
That was it for Cizre. They made a few attacks and probably deserved at least one goal... then again there were two clear-cut penalties that the referee refused to award against the south-eastern team.
Anyway, the youngsters got a bit of a workout and it all finished nicely.
