Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Genclerbirligi scorned the chance to move into mid-table safety last night when they drew a blank against bottom club Kayseri. Well ........... they were bottom, but that ‘distinction’ now belongs to Ankaragucu !!!
Kayserispor 2 GENCLERBIRLIGI 0
Team – Nordfeldt, Oguz, Kizildag, Toure, Pehlivanoglu, Baiano, Pehlivan, Ozdemir, Candeias, Sio and Stancu
Interesting to spot that old Ankaragucu favourite, Djedje was in the Kayseri team !
Henrique opened the scoring after half an hour of play in the 1st half, and substitute Kravets put the game out of Gencler’s reach near the end of the match.
Gencler is still left with plenty to do with 6 matches left to play, as they struggle to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone.
Currently in 11th position, they could be in 12th position if Kasimpasa beat Fener tonight.
Some crucial matches coming up for Gencler against fellow strugglers Kasimpasa, also Fener....spit....bahce, Sivas and Beshiktrash.
First up though is the home match against Kasimpasa on Monday 29 June which is one of those ‘must win’ matches.
Watch this space for the outcome !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
