Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Shock of the Round so far ! Gencler bow out of the Turkish Cup to 3rd League minnows Mardin after extra time and penalties in Ankara this afternoon.
It was not chosen as one of the TV matches, so I have no details of the match except the basics.
GENCLERBIRLIGI 1 Mardin 1
Mardin win 4-2 on penalties after Altiparmak and Abdullah miss their penalties for Gencler.
Team – Ramazan, Abdullah, Byelyayev, Muhammed, Sallallich, Baran, Altiparmak, Mert K, Ulusoy, Musa and Furkan
Substitutes – Berkay, Sercan, Gokhan and Eralp
Gencler opened the scoring in the 20th minute through Abdullah, and Mustafa equalised 13 minutes later.
It should be borne in mind that Gencler Management only included a few of the 1st Team Squad while obviously keeping and eye on Saturday’s League Match away to Bandirma.
Gencler may be in mid-table, but they are only 3 points above the relegation zone !!
Ankaragucu will be in Cup action on Thursday afternoon, so watch this space for the outcome.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
