Manisaspor, Buyuksehir drop points
Manisaspor missed the chance to go level on points with second-placed Galatasaray after being held to a goalless draw at ten-man Mersin Idmanyurdu.
When Cagdas Atan was red carded just before the hour mark, Manisaspor looked heavy favourites to win and join Gala on 25 points but they could not find the net.
Fourth-placed Istanbul Buyuksehir also failed to advance after going down 1-0 at Kayserispor. That game was also heading for stalemate until Okay Yokulslu netted with a minute remaining.
Antalyaspor were 2-1 winners at home to Karabukspor, who had Danilo Nikolic sent off in the 37th minute. Tita opened the scoring with a penalty six minutes before the break, Ugur Inceman made it two in the 56th minute and Bilal Kisa grabbed a consolation in the closing seconds.
Eskisehirspor defeated hosts Bursaspor 1-0, thanks to Dede's late effort three minutes from time.
