Miller scores on Bursaspor debut
Second-placed Bursaspor moved within two points of Super Lig leaders Trabzonspor today thanks to a 2-0 home win over ten-man Galatasaray.
New signing Kenny Miller, who completed his move from Rangers last week, opened the scoring after 37 minutes and Gokcek Wederson doubled the hosts' advantage on the stroke of half-time. Gala had Ayhan Akman sent off after 64 minutes and could find no way back.
The result kept Bursaspor hot on the heels of Trabzonspor, who can re-establish their five-point cushion by winning at Fenerbahce tomorrow.
Kayserispor moved up to third despite being held to a goalless draw at Karabukspor.
Fifteenth-placed Sivasspor remained too close to the drop-zone for comfort following a 1-1 home draw against mid-table Antalyaspor. Erman Kilic earned the home side a point, equalising 11 minutes before half-time after Tita's 16th-minute opener.
Bucaspor were convincing winners in the battle of the bottom two, thrashing basement boys Kasimpasa 4-0.
Musa Aydin netted twice in the first 15 minutes, Jose Gomes added a third seven minutes before the interval and substitute Erkan Taskiran sealed the rout in the 74th minute - moments after stepping off the bench.
