Ankaragucu vs Karabukspor match preview!

Ankaragucu travel to Karabukspor on Tuesday in the Turkish Cup group stages clash between the two clubs. Karabukspor won last weeks match 3-0 comfortably in Ankara and will be looking to take 3 points again as they fight it out with Sivas 4 Eylul and Istanbul Basaksehir for a place in the next round.

As Jim said on the match report thread, we don't care about the Turkish Cup, we have more important things to worry about at the moment including keeping our place in Lig 2 and more importantly the existence of the club.

Ankaragucu will go into the game without Serhat Gulpinar who terminated his contract with the club and Mehmet Erdem who signed for Goztepe. Losing those players will be a real blow especially Mehmet Erdem who has been the clubs best player.

Levent Kale has been appointed club captain and should come back into the team, and their also could be a place for highly rated Batuhan Gulcan. The Ankaragucu U17 team are top of their league table and the club continue to produce talented youngsters. That alone would be a real shame if the club did finish as Ankaragucu are responsible for bringing through many talented young players.

Karabukspor will likely field a weakened team and we can only hope that Ankaragucu can keep the score to a respectable outcome. Aykan Atik will take control of the Ankaragucu team following the resignation of Mustafa Kaplan. Lets hope he gets off to a decent start.


  1. We are OUT of the Cup, so all that matters is maintaining some semblance of pride in the name of .......... Ankaragucu !

    It will probably be live on TV. If it is, I'll put the details up here tomorrow morning.

  2. The game might not go ahead due to heavy snow

  3. Aye Nadeem. Saw the satelite picture on BBC News last night - not lookin very promising in the west of Turkey.

    However, if it does go ahead, it is on A Haber TV Channel KO 4.30pm. I'll try and catch the 2nd half.

    The Gencler v Giresun match is also on today in Ankara. Raining here at the moment - no snow forecast. KO 3pm and it's on A Spor TV Channel.
