Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Genclerbirligi is obviously determined to stay in the title race with another hard fought narrow victory yesterday.
GENCLERBIRLIGI 2 Umraniye 1
Team – Emrullah, Ahmet Oguz, Mert, Claro, Alper, Yasin, Selcuk, Jailton, Sessognon, Ahmet Ilhan and Stancu
Sustitutes used – Nadir and Matei
Yasir of Umraniye scored an own-goal after only 10 minutes to settle nerves, and then Stancu made the match ‘safe’ shortly after the re-start in the 2nd half.
Umraniye gained a consolation goal almost on the final whistle but too late to find the equaliser.
This win moves Gencler back into a serious challenging position at the top, and with Denizli playing Osman....spit....li tonight it will be tight at the top. I’ll put the league positions up here in the comments section tomorrow.
By the way, I noticed from fb yesterday that Lanky Kanka attended the match, so I will ask him to put any further details in the comments section.
Focus now switches to the Super League and Ankaragucu today in their bid to exit the relegation zone !!
Keep watching this space !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
