Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Gencler took an important scalp last night when they defeated possible promotion hopefuls, Erzurum, to ease their relegation fears. They are now 4 points above the relegation zone and with 2 matches left, they can be confident, but not complacent.
With all the matches kicking off at the same time again last night, it was a case of watching TRT flip from one match to another as the kankas watched in The Bira Park Bar.
GENCLERBIRLIGI 2 Erzurum 1
Team – Ramazan, Omurcan, Metehan, Gokhan, Muhammed, Baris, Hrechyshkin, Tshibola, Berisbek, Sallallich and Lima
Substitutes – Musa, Aksel and Ilker
Erzurum took an early lead in the 4th minute with a goal by Albayrak.
It took Gencler until the 24th minute to equalise when Lima set-up Sallallich to power in a great shot.
Gencler’s Player of the Season (in my opinion !!), Baris, scored the winner half way through the 2nd half when he sent his shot into the top right when put through in the box.
Next up for Gencler is an away match against 2nd bottom of the league Menemenspor who is staring relegation in the face.
If Gencler can win this match it will confirm league safety and perhaps they can do Ankaragucu a favour in their last match against Umraniye with a relaxed and winning performance.
However, Ankaragucu has the League Championship Title in their own hands, and with 2 matches left, they sit one point ahead of Umraniye and look favourites to go up to the Super League as Champions.
As always, watch this space next weekend for the details.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
