Ankaragucu vs Nigde Belediyespor match preview!

For the first time in his Ankaragucu career Ismet Tasdemir could face losing his job if the team don't take all 3 points from Nigde at the weekend. Ankaragucu have only won 2 of their last 7 games which ultimately isn't anywhere near good enough if you want to win the title.

Despite dominating last weekends match with Tokatspor, Ankaragucu dropped points at home with after a disappointing 1-1 draw. Gumushanespor are now 3 points ahead with a game in hand. There won't be a better chance of winning promotion than this season as there aren't any stand out sides. Gumushanespor are only top because we have dropped so many points when it mattered and Menemen have had a start stop campaign in 3rd.

The problems for Ankaragucu this season lie in attack. To many games the team have dominated play and created more chances but failed to finish teams off. Only one player can hold their head up high and be satisfied with their performances of our attacking players and that's Omer Bozan. The other players such as Erhan Senturk, Emre Sahin, Muharrem Ozan, Enes Kubat and Kenan Özer need to up their performances and start finding the net.

Nigde are on a 6 match unbeaten run and find themselves in the playoff places sitting in 5th place. They have a very good defensive record and will be difficult to break down, where as they have struggled like Ankaragucu of late in attack.

Gumushanespor also have a tough match at the weekend, they are at home against Hatayspor who are in 4th place. That game will be played behind closed doors due to the 5 match stadium ban for crowd trouble.

It will be interesting to see who delivers and who slips up at the weekend, let's hope it's a positive outcome for Ankaragucu while Hatayspor take 3 points home from Gumushane.

  1. Well said Nadeem.

    Applying the law of averages, surely it is time for some positive good news this weekend after Hibernian showed the way to do it last night !!!

    This may be Ankaragucu's last chance to apply any real pressure on Gumushane. Returning from Nigde with all 3 points would be making a statement that the chase isn't over yet !!!
