Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Gencler hosted league leaders Alanya yesterday and were able to stay undefeated for the 2nd week in a row. However, with Kayseri and Kasimpasa picking up points, Gencler move to the bottom of the league and one point behind Kayseri.
GENCLERBIRLIGI 1 Alanyaspor 1
Team – Ertac, Ahmet, Flavio, Toure, Polomat, Baiano, Dialo, Candeias, Sessegnon, Stancu and Sio
Substitutes – Seuntjens, Berat and Ayite
Gencler opened the scoring with a Stancu penalty just before half time and Alanya equalised half way through the 2nd half with a goal by Ceyhun.
So, a creditable draw by Gencler considering that those 2 points were the first points dropped by Alanya this season.
Now all eyes are focused on next Sunday’s Ankara Derby with both teams anxious for a win for various reasons.
Gencler is still without a win this season and will be looking to rectify that against an unsettled Ankaragucu team still struggling to cope with the transfer ban still in place.
Ankaragucu has lost their last two matches, however, they showed great fighting spirit last Saturday in Kadikoy and only lost by the odd goal due to two basic mistakes. If they play like that on Sunday then Gencler will have a problem on their hands.
It promises to be a close encounter as derbies usually are, and the report will be up here on Monday.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
