Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
While Ankaragucu recorded a routine and expected victory against istan....spit....bul fener....spit....bahce on Saturday, Genclerbirligi upset the form book and defeated high flying Alanya on the south coast yesterday.
Bear in mind that this is the team that knocked galata....spit....saray out of the Turkish Cup last week, so we must congratulate Gencler on an outstanding result.
Alanyaspor 0 GENCLERBIRLIGI 1
Team – Nordfeldt, Erdem, Ramos, Halil, Toure, Sefa, Sessegnon, Baiano, Yasin, Candeias and Stancu
Substitutes – Ahmet, Sio and Berat
Stancu was the hero for Gencler (again) with the crucial goal in the 77th minute. However, it must have been a team performance to put the shutters up against an in form team like Alanya who have scored 41 league goals this season.
It is still a ‘dogs breakfast’ in the fight to avoid relegation with only 12 points separating Antep in 9th position and Kayseri at the bottom, with 8 other teams in the mix.
Therefore, the Ankara Derby takes on added significance next Sunday KO 4pm in the ‘6 pointer’ !
It is Gencler’s home match, and it is unclear at the moment if they will make Ankaragucu take the small away section, or open up the Stadium for Ankaragucu.
I will inform you of the decision in the comments section of this report and the Ankaragucu v fener....spit....bahce report when it is known.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
