Team News: Giresunspor
Regarding absentees, there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Giresunspor gaffer İrfan Buz to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy group. Faustin Senghor (unknown injury) will miss out. Suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Doğaç Çiftçi and Arda Kılıç.
Team News: Kocaelispor
Thanks to a fully healthy squad ready to go, the Kocaelispor boss does not have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game.
We feel that Giresunspor will manage to breach the defence of this Kocaelispor outfit, but one goal likely won’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We’re therefore tipping both teams to score in a 1-2 winning margin for Kocaelispor after the 90. There looks to be little in this one.
