Göztepe, who defeated Altaş Denizlispor, who was fighting to stay in the league in the Spor Toto 1st League, with the goals of Yalçın and Mamah on the road in the Aegean derby, continued on his way with confident steps in the Play-Off target. The yellow-red team put forward a great performance by getting 4 wins and 2 draws in their last 6 games. Göztepe, who won the third consecutive victory for the first time this season, with 3 points forfeited from Yeni Malatyaspor, which was withdrawn from the league due to the earthquake, rose to 44 points and reached the Play-Off limit.
Technical manager Şakir Özkalımoğlu stated that they had a very valuable victory and commented, “Göztepe’s footsteps are coming”. Emphasizing that Denizli has always been a difficult away game, Özkalımoğlu said, “Denizlispor has a quality staff despite being in the lower ranks. We have respect for Denizlispor. Our fans were great again. They are always with us. I would like to thank our fans who came to Denizli. “Our footsteps will continue to come. We are now focused on the Samsunspor match,” he said.
