Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Gencler conceded two late goals yesterday to new league leaders Trabzon and have now lost 10 matches which keeps them stuck in the dangerous relegation battle.
GENCLERBIRLIGI 0 Trabzonspor 2
Team – Nordfeldt, Erdem, Flavio, Toure, Halil, Yasin, Baiano, Candeias, Sessegnon, Sefa and Nadir
Substitutes – Ahmet, Seuntjens and Sio
Trabzon won a penalty with 10 minutes of the match remaining which was despatched by Sosa, and with 7 minutes left, the match was put to bed by Nwakaeme.
Trabzon’s top goal scorer, Sorloth, was shown a straight red card deep into time added on.
So, the relegation battle continues with 6 teams at the bottom who are realistically in the fight. Kayseri is looking doomed, but 2nd bottom Kasimpasa is only 5 points behind Gencler.
As I’ve said many times, it doesn’t get any easier in this league, with Gencler travelling to 3rd top Alanya next Sunday.
There will probably be a new league leader later today when Sivas and Basaksehir go head to head, but both Ankara teams are only focused on the bottom positions !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
