Ankaragucu vs Samsunspor match preview!
Ankaragucu are back in league action this Sunday after their disastrous defeat in the Turkish Cup at Afyon Afjetspor midweek. İsmail Kartal is expected to ring the changes with him reverting to the team that started last weekends match at Rizespor. Nduka Ozokwu is set to miss out due to an injury picked up in that game.
There could be a return to the squad for Lanre Kehinde who has now served his 3 match suspension after his ridiculous sending off at Elazigspor.
The match midweek with Afyon proved that many of these fringe players aren't worthy of a place in the first team. Yusuf Abdioglu and Mehmet Sak again produced a defensive horror show while Mahmut Akkan and Doka were less than impressive on their debuts.
Umut Nayir and Ilhan Parlak formed an excellent partnership in last weeks match with Rizespor and the Ankaragucu fans will be hoping this is the sign of things to come. With the home crowd behind them at the 19 Mathis Stadium the fans will be hoping for two wins in a row in the League.
Samsunspor are struggling at the foot of the table and were also knocked out of the Turkish Cup by lower league opposition after losing on penalties to Ankara Demirspor. That said, there are no easy games in this league and they will be coming to Ankara looking to get their campaign back on track. Both sides met in a pre season friendly in Samsun where the home side won 1-0. A lot has changed since then and on paper Ankaragucu have a far Superior side, paper doesn't win football matches though.
The Kanka Group will again be attending and for full meeting details please get in touch with Jim who will also be doin the match report.
