Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Gencler caused the upset result of the weekend yesterday when they went to the Mediterranean coast and blew Antalya away with a goal storm.   With Gencler deep in the relegation zone it was unthinkable that they would cause waves against mid-table Antalya.

Antalyaspor         0                GENCLERBIRLIGI       6

Team – Ertac, Erdem, Bjarsmyr, Flavio, Polomat, Ayite, Berat, Sessegnon, Candeias, Stancu and Sio

Substitutes – Mats, Sefa and Rahmetullah

Gencler was 3-0 up with 2 goals from Candeias and 1 from Sio before Bahadir of Antalya received a RED card in the 23rd minute.   Two more goals followed from Candeias and Sio before the half time whistle and that sound must have been a relief for Antalya.   Stancu added a 6th in the 2nd half.

My friend, Haluk, watched the match and he said all the Gencler goals were top-drawer and then they took their foot off the gas after the 6th goal went in.

Gencler now move off the bottom of the league to 2nd bottom, but are only 3 points behind Ankaragucu, so it’s pretty tight down at the bottom and shaping up for a dog-fight of a relegation struggle with 9 teams in the mix at the moment.

Next Sunday Gencler play host to Denizlispor who have slipped down the league in recent weeks after a strong start.   Gencler will probably fancy their chances of adding to Denizli woes !!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
