Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Gencler slumped to their heaviest defeat of the season last night and now look destined for relegation.
Now that we are well into the run-down to the end of the season, all the matches are kicking off on the same day and at the same time, therefore I was unable to watch this match.
Gencler sent out an attacking line-up last night so it was a surprising result bearing in mind that Fatih is a mid-table team.
Fatih Karagumruk 5 GENCLERBIRLIGI 1
Team – Nordfeldt, Polomat, Diego, Arda, Johansson, Soner, Mustafa, Ayite, Piris, Yilmaz and Stancu
Substitutes – Furman, Karakas, Berisberk and Altiparmak
Fatih raced into a 2 goal lead before half time, and then added 2 more plus a penalty before the end.
Gencler scored a consolation goal by Karakas near the end in 90 plus 3.
Gencler remain in 2nd bottom position in the league and are now 5 points behind Kayseri in the 5th bottom position and safety. So, with only 2 matches left Gencler must win them and hope that Kayseri can drop points.
That will be easier said than done with 2 difficult matches coming up for Gencler. First up is a home match against mid-table Goztepe on Tuesday, followed by an away match against 4th top of the league Trabzon next Saturday.
Denizlispor has already been confirmed as relegated, but the 3 other teams are still fighting it out. So, Tuesday’s results should give a clearer picture of the situation.
As always, watch this space for the outcome.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
