Turkey round-up: Galatasaray draw comfort

Galatasaray SK remain top of the league despite a goalless draw at newly promoted Elazigspor.

Galatasaray SK remained top of the Turkish first division despite drawing 0-0 at newly promoted Elazigspor.

Fringe players
Galatasaray fielded a number of fringe players for their trip to Elazig and although the team from the capital dominated for most of the game they failed to take advantage of numerous goal-scoring chances. Coach Fatih Terim's policy of making the maximum three substitutions almost backfired late in the game when defender Mohamed Sarr limped out in the 85th minute forcing the visitors to play with ten men for the final five minutes.  

No change
Besiktas JK and Gaziantepspor failed to take advantage of Galatasaray's slip up as they played out a tense goalless draw to remain a point behind the leaders. Fenerbahçe SK came from a goal behind to beat Altay 3-1. Ümit Inal opened the scoring on 19 minutes, but six minutes later Argentinian playmaker Ariel Ortega equalised with a header. Ogün Temizkanoglu then added a second goal and on 73 minutes, before Miroslav Stevic finished off the scoring.  

Low scoring
Gençlerbirligi could only manage a goalless draw against Denizlispor while Trabzonspor won 2-1 at Bursaspor. Adanaspor AS drew 1-1 with Malatyaspor who took the lead through Sertan Eser on 47 minutes. Gökmen Yildiran scored the equaliser in the 67th minute. 

First win
Istanbulspor recorded their first win of the season in a 1-0 victory against Diyarbakirspor, but Kocaelispor slumped to a 3-1 defeat to Göztepe. Samsunspor defeated Ankaragücü 1-0.
