Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Spare a thought for bottom Club Karabuk languishing at the bottom of the League on Minus 2 points after 14 matches played !!
They were unfortunate to catch Gencler in a ruthless frame of mind last Saturday, as Gencler recovered from two consecutive defeats to go on a goal spree !
GENCLERBIRLIGI 6 Karabuk 0
It’s not only Ankaragucu who must travel out of the city for their home matches these days. Gencler has now suffered the same ignominy when the TFF sent them to Eskisehir due to the poor condition of the Osmanli Stadium pitch in Yenikent. There is still no news about the New Eryaman Stadium concerning its state of readiness. It goes without saying therefore that the sooner its ready the better !
Among Gencler’s scorers were Nadir Ciftci, Deniz Yilmaz and Stephan Sessegnon. So, Gencler remain on top of the league 5 points clear of Denizli in 2nd. However, both teams will meet each other next Sunday in Denizli in what is sure to be a closely fought encounter.
Prior to that though, there is the small matter of a Turkish Cup match to negotiate when Gencler play host to Hatayspor at the Osmanli Stadium tomorrow (4 December). I’ll put the result of that match in the comments section of this report on Wednesday.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
