Greetings Kankas and Kankies.


With 8 matches kicking off at the same time, I was obviously unable to watch the Gencler match, so have only been able to include sketchy details.


Gencler fielded mostly fringe team players since they were at home to a 3rd League team and some fans would have, no doubt, be questioning that decision when they went in 0-0 at half time.


 GENCLERBIRLIGI          4                  Viven Bornova          1


Team – Yigit, Erturk, Cetin, Ozturk, Amilton, Kemaloglu, Celik, Wu, Karakullukcu, Rodrigues and Bostan


Substitutes – Mert, Enes, Nzaba, Akgul and Kabasakal


However, the half time team talk obviously did the trick when Karakullukcu opened the scoring after only 1 minute.


Further goals followed 10 minutes later from Rodrigues and  Bostan before Senturk scored for Bornova with 20 minutes to go.


Into time added on and Akgul wrapped it up with the 4th.


So, Gencler safely into the 5th Round which will take place after the winter break in January or February.


Up next, and it’s back to league business with a top 6 clash on Sunday 10 December when Goztepe will be the visitors.


As always, watch this space for the details.


All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
