Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
After last week’s ‘red mist’ in Gaziantep, Gencler spurned the opportunity to win their first points of the season last night by throwing away a 1-0 lead in the last 10 minutes of the match.
GENCLERBIRLIGI 1 Basaksehir 2
Team – Diallo, Erdem, Flavio, Fabricio, Halil, Sio, Sessegnon, Toure, Berat, Candeias and Stancu
Substitutes – Yasin, Soner and Rahmetullah
This match was a ‘6 pointer’ with both teams propping up the league on zero points, so when Sio opened the scoring on the half hour mark it should have been the signal to kill the match off with a 2nd goal.
However, as we have seen during the last few seasons, Basaksehir is not a team to take lightly, even allowing for the fact that their best two players have since moved on to pastures new.
Goals from Demba Ba and Visca in the last 10 minutes consigned Gencler to the bottom of the league on zero points after 3 matches in.
It doesn’t get any easier in this league with an away match next up after the International Break against Trabzonspor !
Interestingly, at the other end of the table, Alanya lead the way with a 100% winning record and are 2 points clear of the chasing pack. How long will they stay there I wonder ??!!
Gencler need to start winning points and ......................sooooooon !!
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
