Ankaragucu vs Payasspor match preview!
There is no such thing as an easy game in football these days. You just have to look at the Faroe Islands who were the laughing stock of football but beat Greece last month, or even Iceland who have qualified for the Euros.
Ankaragucu host Lig 3 side Payasspor on Tuesday afternoon at the 19 Mayis Stadium and it should be a match that see Ankaragucu progress to the next round. Payasspor sit bottom of Lig 3 with 4 defeats from 4 games. This weekend they were thumped 5-1 at home against Ayvalikgucu.
The match will also give coach Aykan Atik the opportunity to play some of the fringe players such as Hasan Ayaroglu, Enes Kubat, Sedat Bayrak and Timur Kosovali. The players will want to keep the momentum going after a good 1-0 win at Keciorengucu yesterday thanks to a late goal from Omer Bozan.
The priority for Ankaragucu this season will be the league, but a good cup run can keep the confidence levels high and also bring in needed money. Unfortunately the Turkish FA have again made the kick off time a midweek afternoon which will mean the stadium will likely be half empty.
Jim will be there, so if anyone else would like to join him get in touch and he can give you all the details.
