Besiktas bask in derby delight

Fenerbahçe SK suffered their first loss of the season after a 2-1 defeat by city rivals Besiktas JK.

By Türker Tozar

Turkish SuperLeague leaders Fenerbahçe SK suffered their first defeat of the season as Besiktas JK continued their recent resurgence with a 2-1 win in the Istanbul derby.

Dogged defence
Besiktas endured a torrid start to the season, winning just one of their opening eight games but have now won three in a row after surviving the final 23 minutes with ten men following Ibrahim Üzülmez’s dismissal for deliberately handballing in the penalty area. By that time, the home side were already 2-0 ahead thanks to John Carew and Mustafa Dogan, but after Pierre van Hooijdonk converted the resulting spot-kick, the side that had dominated much of the match were forced to defend doggedly to seal the three points and climb into the top half of the table for the first time this campaign.

Galatasaray go top
Fenerbahçe’s slip allowed Galatasaray SK to move alongside them after a 2-0 victory against Akçaabat Sebatspor at the Ali Sami Yen stadium. The side lying second from bottom made their illustrious opponents work for their win though, and Galatasaray did not break the deadlock until 15 minutes from the final whistle. Substitute Ümit Karan gave the home side the lead and defender Orhan Ak then added a second in injury time as Galatasaray moved on to 28 points.

Yattara double
Trabzonspor lie just two points behind in third after returning to winning ways in style, with a 4-1 win against Diyarbakirspor. Ibrahima Yattara found the net twice, while Hüseyin Çimsir and Gökdeniz Karadeniz – with his seventh of the season – added the others before Serdar Samatyali scored a consolation two minutes from time. The distance between third and fourth is now five points after Malatyaspor lost 1-0 against struggling Kayserispor. Ghanaian midfielder Samuel Johnson scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.

Samsunspor streak ends
The result allowed Denizlispor to leapfrog Malatyaspor after ending Samsunspor's five-match winning streak with a 2-0 win. Ersen Martin opened the scoring with a header just after the half-hour mark before Güven Varol added a second before the interval. Gençlerbirligi and Çaykur Rizespor both won 1-0 against Istanbulspor AS and Gaziantepspor respectively.

Fiery derby
There was a derby in Ankara too, where BB Ankaraspor beat MKE Ankaragücü 2-0. Ankaragücü, who finished the game with nine men following the dismissal of Özgür Yildirim and Yilmaz Özlem, had no answer to Ramazan Tunç and Jaba’s strikes. Meanwhile, Konyaspor eased to a 4-1 win at Sakaryaspor AS with Tayfun Türkmen scoring twice.
