Greetings Kankas and Kankies.


With only 9 matches left for Ankaragucu until the end of the season, and 10 for Gencler, the Ankara teams have had a season of mixed fortunes.


Ankaragucu is homing in on a return to the Super League either as champions or runners-up.   Gencler, on the other hand, has been flirting with relegation for most of the season and is still only 3 points above the relegation zone.


Ankaragucu has a tricky away fixture on Sunday against mid-table Manisa and will be hoping to bring all 3 points back to Ankara, in view of the likelihood of Umraniye beating Altinordu on Saturday.    At the moment Ankaragucu is 2 goals better off than Umraniye in the goal difference column in the league table.


Gencler has a home fixture on Sunday against fellow strugglers Kocaeli in what will be a ‘Six Pointer’.


Ps ……. Sad to see Ankaragucu’s ‘brother team’ Bursa languishing in 2nd bottom place, but hopefully they will stage a revival and pull clear before the end of the season in May.


Here is the up-to-date league table –
