Greetings Kankas and Kankies.


In my absence from Turkey, Gencler has struggled to maintain momentum in their quest to move up the league.


On 4 February, they drew another blank with a 0-0 draw against Corum which still leaves them 6 points adrift of the Play-Off  Zone.   However, there is still time to rectify the situation, but they have a mountain to climb on Monday when they travel to league leaders Eyupspor.


Realistically the automatic promotion slots seem to be beyond them, but at least qualifying for the play-offs seems to be the target........ and attainable.


On 8 February, Gencler played host to Super League Trabzonspor in the Last 16 Round of The Turkish Cup and were unluckily eliminated.


With Gencler 1-0 up, and into the 90 plus 6 minute mark of the match, it looked like curtains for Trabzon when they grabbed an unlikely equaliser on the full time whistle.


Extra time beckoned and Trabzon found the winning goal in the 1st period to send Gencler crashing out of the Cup.    


To be honest, I was hoping for an Ankaragucu v Gencler quarter final, but Ankaragucu will learn their opponents on Monday when the draw is made.


In the meantime, and on the upside, Gencler can now focus their efforts on league business !!


All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
