Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
A poor 1st half tonight which was mainly dominated by Eyup, but the Gencler defence was able to deal with most of their attacks.
Gencler threatened only once in the entire match when Metehan had a downward header well saved.
Eyupspor 1 GENCLERBIRLIGI 0
Team – Adiyaman, Kerem, Metehan, Arda, Omurcan, Gokhan, Hrechyshkin, M. Sahindere, Lima, Baris and Eleke
Substitutes – Eralp, Sallalich, Muhammed and Altiparmak
The only goal of the match was scored by Ankaragucu Olde Boy, Umut Bulut, 3 minutes into the 2nd half. Good inter-play between 3 Eyup forwards on the right, then the cross into the box. Umut made a well timed run between 2 defenders to stroke the ball in with ease.
He almost scored again 30 minutes later, but after a great sweeping move down the right, the cross was just too far in front of him to connect.
The Eyup forwards gave the Gencler defence a torrid evening, especially the speedy and skillful Mete Kaan. Therefore, Gencler can have no complaints on returning to Ankara without any points.
It will be back to the drawing board for Gencler to prepare for the visit of Adanaspor on Monday 17th January who sit 3 points above Gencler in mid-table.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
