Özkan at the double for Denizlispor

Denizlispor 2-0 FC Lorient Mustafa Özkan's double gives Denizlispor a useful lead.

Denizlispor 2-0 FC Lorient
Striker Mustafa Özkan was Denizlispor’s hero as he gave the Turkish team a handy two-goal cushion to take into their UEFA Cup first-round, second-leg clash with FC Lorient.

French resistance
The 26-year-old attacker struck either side of the interval as the hosts overcame stern resistance from the French second division side to establish a valuable advantage in their battle for a second-round place.

Early opener
The Turkish side were given the best possible start with an eleventh-minute opener from Özkan, who finished with a fine volley after a swift passing move, and the visitors had to work hard to stay in the tie as they were penned back inside their own half by Denizilispor.

Penalty second
Play became more even after the break, but Lorient fell further behind after 68 minutes, when Ali Tandogan was brought down by Yohan Bouzin in the area, and Özkan scored from the penalty spot, leaving the French side to face a difficult return tie in front of their own supporters.
