Greetings Kankas and Kankies.


Gencler achieved a notable success in Adana last night to maintain their involvement in the promotion race.


They remain unbeaten in their last 6 league matches and currently occupy 4th position in the league, only 5 points behind league leaders Eyupspor.    However, their position could change with most of the teams also challenging for promotion playing today and tomorrow.


I was unable to watch the match due to the Ankaragucu match having the same kick off time, so this will be a brief report   !


Adanaspor         0                GENCLERBIRLIGI            2


Team – Orkun, Cek, M. Cagiran, Babacan, Ugur, Yasin, Enes, Kemaloglu, Karakullukcu, Kayode and M. Yatabare


Substitutes – Wu, Erdal, Nzaba, Erturk and  Akabueze


Kayode scored both goals.    The 1st early in the 1st half and the 2nd near the end of the match.


Orkun and the defence will no doubt have been kept busy with Adana having 62% possession and 7 shots on target as opposed to Gencler who had 3 shots on target   !


Next up for Gencler is the ‘Mini’Ankara Derby at home against Keciorengucu after the International Break.


However, prior to that Ankaragucu will play Genclerbirligi in the annual Ankara Sportswriters Cup next Saturday.    This match is normally played in August as the curtain raiser to the season, but due to the Eryaman Stadium being re-surfaced it had to be delayed this season.


As always, watch this space for the outcome.


All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
