Sloppy, sloppy defending and some strange non shots from Genclerbirligi leave us staring into the abyss... yet again.
Kayserispor 3 - 2 Genclerbirligi
Bernard and me made it down to the Alerta to escape Ankara's harsh spring conditions and for our trouble we got a pretty boring first 20 minutes.
Kayseri dominated possession but weren't really doing all that much. We had a couıple of goes... but again, not much happening until Kayseri scored after a goal mouth scramble following a freekick.
Gencler tried to counter but looked very tired towards the half-time break and just as soon as Bernard mentioned that half-time couldn't come fast enough for Gencler, our defenders fell asleep and let an easy one through.
Two-nil at half time and all seemed lost.
But then came a bit of a fightback. We started playing the better football and we were deservedly awarded a penalty when one of our players was taken out in the box.
Sessegnon calmly put it away and we continued battling on.
Then came our second shoot yourself in the foot moment when our defence was just rubbish. arrggghhjjj
So, it was 3-1 and just to keep us awake Skuletic clawed one back.
Time was late and Gencler were on the attack, just seconds left and a long ball is sent in and the ball is put into the back of the net. The Alerta erupted in joy. Replays showed he was offside.
Next week is the big one. Genclerbirligi v Osmanlispor.
