Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
The Round Ball in Ankara is back in business again, although sometimes with less detail for Genclerbirligi matches due to the recent decision to play matches behind closed doors for the time being !
GENCLERBIRLIGI 2 Konyaspor 1
Team – Nordfeldt, Ozgenc, Toure, Ramos Pehlivanoglu, Sessegnon, Seuntjens Pehlivan, Candeias, Sio and Stancu
Sio opened the scoring after the break on 59 minutes, and Jevtovic equalised 3 minutes later. The winner arrived 7 minutes from the end when substitute Ozdemir made it safe.
As you would expect from these 2 teams, it was a close and tight encounter with Gencler having only 4 shots on target to Konya’s 3.
This win moved Gencler almost into mid-table to 12th position, but they can’t breathe a sigh of relief yet with only 6 points separating them from the relegation zone !!
Next Saturday, Gencler travel to bottom club Kayseri who are still not confirmed as ‘relegated’, so things are becoming tense with points vital for both teams.
With a win, Gencler can cement mid-table safety and put another nail into Kayseri’s coffin !!!
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
