Turkish first division leaders Gençlerbirligi SK were held for the first time this season but maintained their unbeaten record with a 1-1 draw against Trabzonspor.
Baris levels scores
Trabzonspor took the lead on 37 minutes when Fatih Tekke scored, but Gençlerbirligi salvaged a point after Deniz Baris equalised on 49 minutes, to reclaim top place from Galatasaray SK, after their 2-0 victory bottom club Kocaelispor on Friday night with goals from Arif Erdem and Brazilian Felipe.
Late joy for Gaziantepspor
Gaziantepspor are still well in contention after a dramatic 2-1 win against Altay GK. Emmanuel Owona put Altay ahead on 14 minutes, but Gaziantepspor's Brazilian striker Viola equalised ten minutes later, and Volkan Bekiroglu scored the winner in added time.
Göztepe hold Besiktas
Besiktas JK had to be satisfied with one point after drawing 2-2 with coachless Izmir side Göztepe. Ahmet Dursun put Besiktas ahead, but Göztepe equalised through Ercan Agaçe. And although Sergen Yalçin restored Besiktas' first-half lead with a great finish, Zafer Biryol levelled again 19 minutes from the end.
Signing pays dividends
Samsunspor had a similar escape at Diyarbakirspor, as the home side took the lead in the opening minute when Deniz Kolgu converted a penalty, only for Serkan Aykut to equalise, justifying his signing from Galatasaray.
Delight for Malatyaspor
Malatyaspor surprised Fenerbahçe SK by beating the Istanbul giants 2-0, Albanian international Klodian Duro and Fazli Ulusoy securing the home side's first win of the season. Fenerbahçe coach Werner Loran admitted after the game that he was considering his position.
