Ankaragucu vs Aydinspor match preview!

Another away match for Ankaragucu this weekend as they travel to Aydinspor looking to make up for the disaster that was last weekend. Three days have went by and i still find myself frustrated and angry at the performance against Tepecikspor. Sometimes in football you play well, give it your all and lose. We simply looked like we didn't care and were playing in a pre season match.

Instead of thinking about challenging Manisaspor for the championship, Ankaragucu need to concentrate on securing a playoff place. Kemal Kilic will also need to find a way of making this team create more chances and more deadly in front of goal. The defence has done its job this season and goalkeeper has done ok to, however the midfield and attack need to up their game.

One change Kilic needs to address, is the need for playing 2 defensive midfielders in Salih Sefercik and Muhammed Gonulacar. Their is no need to have 2 players who are slow and don't create anything going forward in the team. He needs to chose between those two and Harun for the defensive midfield role and bring another attacking player into the team.

The likes of Hasan Ayaroglu, Hasan Kaya, Orhan Evci, and Mustafa Ozturk all find themselves out of the team with Hasan Kaya now on loan at Golbasisspor. Scoring goals win matches, if we can't address that situation then we could be in danger of missing out on a playoff place.

The home side Aydinspor have only won 1 of their last 10 matches in all competitions. They still find themselves in 6th position in the league. That kind of sums up how bad the quality is in this division. If you look at the Ankaragucu team from 2 seasons ago that lost out in the playoffs to Alanyaspor, that team would have won this division comfortably. Unfortunately that season we had two very good teams in Altinordu and Alanyaspor that we were up against, this season their aren't any good sides.

The match kicks off at 13:30 Turkish time and all the updates of the game will be on our Facebook page Round Ball in Ankara.


  1. Yes, well said Nadeem. btw, Altinordu and Alanya are still doing well in the PTT League which shows that their elevation wasn't a fluke.

    I've been keeping an eye on the White League, and even if Ankaragucu do win the Red League Play-Offs, they will have to face a strong team from the White League in the final.

    Whatever happens, it's a certainty that we will have a nail biting end to the season !!!
