Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
After last week’s euphoria of thrashing Antalya on the Mediterranean Coast, Gencler came crashing down to earth in Ankara last night shooting blanks against a disciplined performance by Denizli.
GENCLERBIRLIGI 0 Denizlispor 2
Team – Ertac, Erdem, Flavio, Toure, Polomat, Berat, Candeias, Sessegnon, Ayite, Stancu and Sio
Substitutes – Nadir, Rahmetullah and Mats
Olcay scored the crucial first goal on the half hour mark and that’s how it stayed until the referee, Halis Ozkahya, made the brave decision to award a penalty to Denizli at the 90 plus 5 stage of the match which was despatched by Murawski.
This result leaves Gencler stuck in 2nd bottom place and only 2 points ahead of bottom club Kayseri. After Ankaragucu’s defeat on Friday night they find themselves sucked into the relegation zone and only 3 points ahead of Gencler !
It doesn’t get any easier in this league with Gencler travelling to Konya next Saturday. Despite being thrashed by Fenerbahce in Istan.....spit....bul last Saturday, the home form of Konya will make them strong favourites to heap more grief on Gencler.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
