Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
As I mentioned in last week’s report, the likely outcome of last night’s match would probably be a draw, with both teams willing to accept such a scenario. However, it may well be that Antalya was the happier team last night as they snatched a point from almost defeat near the end.
GENCLERBIRLIGI 1 Antalyaspor 1
Sio made the breakthrough for Gencler shortly after the resumption of the 2nd half and it looked like Gencler had earned a valuable 3 points. However, 8 minutes before the final whistle, Podolski scored the equaliser to keep super league survival hopes alive for both teams.
The most important priority for Gencler at the moment is to keep winning points and to keep space between them and the relegation zone !
Gencler can’t relax just yet with only 5 points separating them from 3rd bottom Kasimpasa, and 9 matches left to keep it that way.
Gencler face yet another crucial match on Saturday when they travel to Denizli who are on the same points total but with a slightly better goal difference. Denizli will be all fired-up after winning a point last Saturday in Kadikoy against Fener......spit.....bahce.
Meanwhile, on Friday night, Ankaragucu will be desperate to beat Rize and join Kasimpasa on 23 points.
It is long overdue for both Ankara teams to make it a winning weekend !!
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
