Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Gencler won the big ‘Six Pointer’ by a narrow margin on Saturday afternoon to relieve a little of the pressure on their precarious position in the relegation zone.
There have been too many false dawns for Gencler this season, but I think it’s safe to say that there is a small ray of light at the end of the tunnel ?! Having won their first home match of the season is a step in the right direction.
GENCLERBIRLIGI 2 Kayserispor 1
Team – Ertac, Erdem, Toure, Flavio, Halil, Nadir, Candeias, Berat, Sessegnon, Stancu and Sio
Substitutes – Ahmet, Biano and Rahmetullah
Sio opened the scoring at the quarter hour mark in the first half and then Kayseri thought they had won a point when Emre equalised with 15 minutes to go to the final whistle.
However, the ever reliable Stancu put the match to bed with the winner 10 minutes from the end to put some icing on the cake.
So, Gencler change places with Ankaragucu to move to 3rd bottom of the league and that’s how it will stay if Ankaragucu draw or lose to Basaksehir tonight.
It’s the International Break next weekend, so Gencler will resume their struggles on Sunday 24 November away to Kasimpasa who are languishing in 12th place in the league. Another difficult match to call and a close encounter is guaranteed.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
