Ankaragucu share the points in Hatay!
Ankaragucu finish the first half of the season top of the league thanks to a 1-1 draw at Hatayspor. The good news is that the team haven't even reached their full potential, the bad news is that we keep dropping points every time we go top.
Team - Emre Koyuncu, Serkan Balci, Sezgin Coskun, Alihan Kubalas, Onur Atasayer, Harun Aydin, Ferhat Culcuoglu, Muhammed Gonulacar, Emre Sahin, Omer Bozan, Muharrem Ozan
Subs - Altay Bayindir, Mehmet Tasci, Orhan Gulle, Ali Sinan Gayla, Mustafa Ozturk, Murat Yilmaz, Enes Kubat
Ismet Tasdemir went with the same team that won 3-0 at home against Kayseri Erciyesspor last week. I managed to catch the game on a poor stream on periscope. The first half was awful, we didn't manage a single effort on goal and went in 1-0 down through a Talha Balci goal for the home side.
The second half was slightly better, Ankaragucu got their equaliser through Omer Bozan and had a couple of other half chances.
The game ended 1-1 but it was a disappointing performance and the team will need to do much better if they are to win this league.
Gumushanespor won 2-0 at home to Etimesgut and go level on points with Ankaragucu. Starting to creep up on the top two are Menemen who are in 3rd just 6 points behind.
The Ankaragucu management team now must press on and add 1-2 quality players to the team when the January transfer window opens and give Ismet Tasdemir the best possible chance of winning this league. We won't get a better chance than this.
