Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Gencler avoided a nail biting last match and possible relegation with a resounding win against fellow strugglers Menemenspor yesterday.
With only one match of the season left, they moved up into mid-table security and can now begin planning a re-build to challenge for promotion to the Super League next season.
I was at The Eryaman Stadium yesterday to watch the Ankaragucu match, so have only sketchy details of the Gencler match.
Menemenspor 1 GENCLERBIRLIGI 3
Team – Ramazan, Muhammed, Gokhan, Metehan, Omurcan, Hrechyshkin, Tshibola, Berisberk, Lima, Baris and Ilker
Substitutes – Arda, Serdarcan, Aksel, Lualua and Furkan
Gencler opened the scoring just after the half time resumption with a goal by Lima.
Menemen equalised half way through the 2nd half with an own goal by Gokhan,
But, Gencler made sure of all 3 points with late goals by Lualua and Tshibola.
Gencler may view their last match as academic, but it takes on greater significance for Ankaragucu as Gencler will play Umraniye at home next Sunday.
With Ankaragucu requiring a win against Keciorengucu next Sunday to be crowned Champions, all Ankaragucu supporters eyes will also be focused on the Gencler match !!
However, the main focus is for Ankaragucu to concentrate on winning and so avoid having to rely on Gencler to beat Umraniye.
As always, watch this space for the outcome.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
