All smiles for Pa Amat Dibba and Mustapha Carayol for setting up a new benchmark for Adana Demirspor after a stunning 4-1 home trouncing over Bursaspor in the second leg, semi final play-off on Sunday July 26.
The win qualifies Adana to a famous potentially promotional final to join elite pacesetters of Turkey top flight Super Lig. football.
It was a goalless draw when the two teams met in a tough first leg play-off encounter at Bursaspor.

Adana will play against Fatih Karagum in the finals on July 30th.
Fatih Karagum beat Akhisar spor fc one-nil in their second leg semi final, play-off match on Sunday following a three-all stalemate in the first leg.
Led by an outstanding Pa Amat Dibba in a 4-1-4-1 formation, Adana opened their account from the penalty spot in the 55th minute through a Swede midfielder- Erkan Zengin after a difficult first half for both sides.
However it was a one-way traffic all the way as in-form Adana, added three more goals in succession in the 78’ 88’ and 90+7’stoppage time.
Meanwhile Adana were denied a clean sheet when the visitors earned a consolation goal through a penalty at the stroke of injury-time 90+13’ from Serder Ozcan.

Although Gambian international Mustapha Carayol aka “Mussi” (31) was not in the team sheet for this particular game, his compatriot Pa Amat Dibba (32), played a key part in this remarkable victory but was withdrawn three minutes from time, perhaps for tactical reasons. The Gambian attacker has scored 5 goals in 17 starts and clocking 937 minutes since his free transfer move from Chinese Super League side Shenzhen fc to second tier Adana Demirspor in Turkey.
