Ankaragucu 1-0 Adanaspor Full Time

Please press f5 for updates throughout the match

1835: Just over 1 hour until kick off as Ankaragucu take on Adanaspor at Adana in the Turkish PTT Lig. According to various Ankaragucu facebook pages, Mehmet Yiginer will announce before kick off the outcome of the transfer ban. An announcement was expected at 1300 today but as of yet nothing has been announced.

1855: Ankaragucu go into the game bottom of the table and 9 points adrift of the teams above them, three points would take a bit of pressure off the young players as the club looks to lift the transfer ban. Adanaspor are in the playoff places and will look close the gap on the top two to one point.

Adanaspor won the last match between the two teams 1-0 in Ankara at the start of the season thanks to an 85th minute goal from Chuks Nwogbo.

We will have the team news as soon as they are confirmed, the game will be shown live on TRT Spor and TRT HD.

1917: Ankaragucu welcome back Mehmet Tasci from injury and there is also a place in the starting line up for Teoman Sefa Erkan.

Ankaragucu Team : Bayram, Aytac, Gurkan, Volkan, Mehmet, Teoman, Mert(c), Bilal, Kaan, Serkan, Timur

Subs: Gokhan Akkan, Aykildiz, Orhan, Enes, Umut, Hasan, Bilal Gundogdu

Adanaspor Team : Tolgahan, Tuna, Uzumcu, Koray, Tayfun, Fevzi, Ilkem, Sedat, Kibong, Rahman, Mbilla, Umit

1956: Both teams on the park for the Turkish national anthem. Ankaragucu in the yellow strip while Adana will play in Orange and white stripes. Looks like a decent crowd in Adana.

2000: Game is underway !!

1- Bright start from Ankaragucu winning a corner after only 1 minute, Timur looking sharp up top.

10 - Even game so far, Timur nearly on the end of a through ball but Tolgahan comes out to collect the ball.

17 - A message of support from our Gencler friends as Oz Kanka messages Haydi Ankaragucu !

21 - Adanaspor living dangerously as Teoman nearly in on goal and Tolgahan makes a mess of the clearance. Ankaragucu growing in confidence but Adana look dangerous on the attack.

24 - Sedat fires his shot over the bar from about 30 yards for Adana.

25 -  Kaan kanak goes inches wide with his free kick, so close as Ankaragucu nearly take the lead.

32 - Ankaragucu counter attack ends when Kaan makes the wrong decision when he puts his shot wide with men in support. Again encouraging signs from Ankaragucu.

37 - Kaan whips in a dangerous free kick but no one can get on the end of it, Ankaragucu look comfortable but need to put the ball in the net.

45 - Teoman so close to giving Ankaragucu the lead, lovely cross into the box from Mert which Teoman headed past Tolgahan but the ball went inches past the post.

Half Time - Adanaspor 0-0 Ankaragucu, excellent spirited first half performance from Ankaragucu, but as so often the case Ankaragucu just can't get that breakthrough. Adanaspor will be looking to up their performance in the second half as they showed nothing going forward. Bayram will be pretty happy that he had a quiet first 45 minutes.

2050 - Cider Kanka John, comments "exciting times, guess we didn't lift the transfer ban ?" We are hoping to find out the answer to that question after the match.

46 - Second half under way, Serkan plays in Kaan  but his first touch lets him down. Wasted chance from Kaan.

48 - Good run from Mbilla down the right hand side, he cuts the ball back but the Ankargucu defence clears for a corner.

49 - Another chance for Kaan but he shoots high and wide, looks like Kaan has lost his shooting boots tonight

51 - Gol Gol Gol, Kaan redeems himself with a lovely pass for Teoman who finishes with a lovely shot with the outside of his foot. 1-0 Ankaragucu !!!!

52 - Fevzi Ozkan shoots from distance easily saved by Bayram in the Ankaragucu goal

54 - Burak Calik played through on goal but shoots hight and wide for Adanaspor. Good response from Adana since the goal.

57 - Adanaspor nearly equalise but their headed effort is cleared off the line

61 - Battle Damaged Damon and Timotheos Leonidas join us and the later comments, " goals lead to victories, victories lead to points, points keep us in the league. Hope is rising.

63 - Nwogbo replaces Tayfun for Adanaspor.

69 - Great chance for Teoman after mistake in the Adana defence , but Tolgahan saves before the defender clears the ball.

75- Nwogbo fires just wide for Adanaspor, seconds later Adana had a chance at the back post but the ball was headed back across goal with no one on the end of it.

76- Timur fires over from just outside the box, good effort from the striker who is working his socks off.

77- Another chance for Adana but shot deflected wide for a corner.

78 - Enes Kubat replaces Mehmet Tasci for Ankaragucu.

80- Corner from Kaan nearly finds its way into the net as Tolgahan drops it, but the Keeper manages to grab the ball at second attempt.

84 - Mehmet Umut Nayir replaces the goalscorer Teoman for Ankaragucu.

88 - Hasan comes on to replace Serkan Sirin for Ankaragucu.

90 - Big penalty shout for Adanaspor as Gurkan looked to have caught Sedat in the penalty area, referee waves play on.

Full Time - Adanaspor 0-1 Ankaragucu !!! Fantastic performance tonight from Ankaragucu who deserved the 3 points in Adana. The gap is now 6 points, with news coming up on the transfer ban, lets hope its good news. !!

  2. Thanks OZ, will do, this is my first attempt, need to go back in with the times though, need to also put it in turkish time.

  3. I've e-mailed the kanka group... everyone is watching... NO PRESSURE AT ALL NADEEM!!!!

    By the way people, send in comments!

  4. Thanks Oz, game just starting , come on Ankaragucu !!

  5. Nadeem, please check your e-mail. Your deleting my add-on stuff.

  6. Right then, seems as if we have sorted out the editing hassles! Haydi Gucu!

  7. Exciting times. I guess the transfer ban wasn't lifted then?

  8. we are awaiting the outcome of that after the match john

  9. 0-1 up. keep going Gucu!

  10. We're so close!!

  11. C'mon ref. Just blow it up. I'm sick of pressing F5!!!!

  12. yaaaaaaaaaas well done ankaragucu, that was a long time waiting in extra time. Well done boys !

  13. Well done Gucu. As soon as I read the "penalty shout" I was sure it had all gone wobbly. Luckily not. Good stuff Nadeem, good report.

  14. for a change it looked like we got a decision our way tonight OZ. great result , now we have a chance of survival. just lift the ban

  15. sarııı laciveeert

  16. Yesssssssssssssssss ..............

    Just arrived back in Edinburgh from North Berwick so couldn't 'live' comment.

    Well done Nadeem for the report and ...... what a relief. Predictions are dangerous these days, but I apologise for being so negative recently.

    This result could be the turning point ...... with or without the Transfer Ban being lifted !

    Well done Ankaragucu boys - you did us proud !

  17. no apologies required Jim, Ankaragucu make us negative these days. But the last two performances have given us hope. These are two teams challenging for promotion and we should have beaten Kayseri, and did beat Adana.

    Next up is our friends Karsiyaka next week at home, another team at the top end of the table, and then we have a trip to top of the league manisaspor the following week.

  22. Great! Going for a meal on Hosdere tonight to celebrate the win.

  23. Well done burr Kanka, great to see you flying the flag for britain in Ankara !

  24. Yep. I thought I'd try the Beer Bus today, (keep hearing about it on here!) but alas, it was shut, too early in the day I fear. Bought myself a Gucu wooly hat, very smart indeed.

  25. Good stuff burra, where did you buy the hat from ? it always annoys me how in Ankara the shops sell more istanbul teams merchandise than the ankara teams.

  26. Hi Bellshill.

    The hat was bought in Kusiley, there are one or two stalls/shops that have them. The guy who sold me it rushed to bring a mirror, which I politely declined!

    Sadly, as you say, there are more shops dealing with the glory boys than the local pride.

  27. Hey Burra. Don't forget that Maniac Harun has a shop in the Sports Shop Arcade in Izmir Cadd in Kizilay. Next time you are in Ankara let me know and I'll give you the directions on how to find it. If he doesn't have what you want then he'll find it for you.

  28. Thanks Jim. I was in Kizilay this morning, but only just got your message. Moving off tomorrow but thanks for the advice. I'm told also that the Red Lion has a beer festival this weekend, pity I'll miss it!!
