Greetings Kankas and Kankies.


Gencler can now be under no illusion how difficult it will be in this league as the season unfolds.    Last Sunday they received a reality check from the league leaders who have won  their opening 5 matches   !


GENCLERBIRLIGI         1                    Eyupspor           3


Team – Cetin, Nzaba, Babacan, Wu, Ugur, S. Yatabare, Enes, Yasin, Erturk, M. Yatabare and Amilton


Substitutes – Cagiran, Kayode, Kemaloglu, Rodrigues and Karakullukcu


I was unable to watch the match so I only have sketchy details.  


Gencler took an early lead in the 3rd minute when Moustapha Yatabare scored.    However, that obviously didn’t unsettle Eyup who found the equaliser 10 minutes later through Bruno.


Kutucu put Eyup ahead 10 mimutes later, and that’s how it stayed until the half time whistle.


Bruno added the 3rd half way through the 2nd half to put the match beyond Gencler.


Gencler Coach. Kaloglu Bey, now has one week to prepare for yet another difficult match away to Bandirma who are lurking one point behind Gencler.


Despite losing against Eyupspor, Gencler retain their 3rd top position in the league, due mainly to 2nd top Manisa drawing away in Giresun (which I predicted might happen last week   !!).


It’s looking very tight in the top half of the league with 6 teams in a position to replace Manisa.    So, everything to play for next Sunday when Gencler travel to Bandirma.


As always, watch this space for the outcome.


All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
