Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Gencler lost the chance to secure mid-table security yesterday against fellow strugglers Denizli and now find themselves back in the relegation mix with only 3 matches left to save their season.
In the interests of fairness, all the league matches kicked off at the same time yesterday and I was in The Eryaman Stadium watching Ankaragucu being promoted back into the Super League, so I have no details of the Gencler match. However, from what I can gather, Denizli had the lion’s share of play with 7 shots on target as opposed to Gencler’s one.
Denizlispor 2 GENCLERBIRLIGI 1
Team – Adiyaman, Muhammed, Gokhan, Metehan, Omurcan, Hrechyshkin, Tshibola, Musa, Sallallich, Baris and Lima
Gencler opened the scoring on the half hour mark with a goal by the impressive Baris.
Denizli equalised shortly after half time and the winner was scored near the end by Ankaragucu ‘olde boy’ Djedje.
Gencler find themselves back in the relegation mix and only 2 points above the relegation zone. They now have 3 matches left to move clear, but they will not be easy matches in which to guarantee points.
First up next Sunday is a home match against Erzurum who are still trying to stay in the play off positions. That one is followed by an away match against relegation threatened Menemen. Finally, a match which all the Ankaragucu supporters will be hoping is a win for Gencler against Umraniye, which could very well be the deciding match on which team ends up as League Champions.
As always, watch this space for the details.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
