Ankaragucu vs 1461 Trabzon match preview!
It's been 7 months since Ankaragucu last played a home league match in front of their own fans at the 19 Mayis stadium after the 5 match stadium ban. The club were punished due to the behaviour from the VIP section who ended up fighting with Amedspor officials back in April after a 2-1 home defeat. The irony is that the Ankaragucu fans were banned for 5 matches while the VIP section and club officials were still allowed to attend the games.
Let's home the club can put the behavioural issues behind them and help guide the team to promotion which in Mehmet Yiginer's words is a must this season. Next up at home on Wednesday night is 1461 Trabzon who are the B side of Super Lig giants Trabzonspor.
After a poor start to the season 1461 find themselves on a 4 match unbeaten run including wins against Kastamonuspor and Tuzlaspor. They also drew with Menemen and will be no pushovers with Ankaragucu needing to be at their best if they are to extend their winning streak to 6 in a row.
Some players of note in the 1461 side are 16 year old Cafer Tosun who is very highly rated and has played 6 games this season in midfield, an incredible achievement for someone of that age. The front two of Yasin Hacimustafaoglu and Ali Kucik have scored 8 goals between them and are highly experienced at this level.
It was another good win for Ankaragucu at the weekend and it will be interesting to see the effect the fans have on the performance. The Ankaragucu fans are like a 12th man with the passionate backing they provide from the stands.
As of yet there are no reports on whether Enes Kubat and Erhan Senturk will make the game with both struggling through injury. Serkan Balci was injured in the warmup at the weekend and is also a doubt.
Ticket prices have been priced at 10TL - 15TL and with the club needing all the money they can get I don't think anyone can complain.
Gumushanespor travel to Inegolspor and we will be all hoping that Inegol can take something off them as they look a formidable force at the moment. Both Gumush and Ankaragucu sit top of the table on 24 points.
The Kankas will be in attendance on Wednesday night and Jim will be back with his first match report of the season. Let's hope it's a positive one and another win for Ankaragucu!!
