Kartal gave youth side players Savaş, Uygar, Caner Koca and Muhammed Akarslan a spot on the starting XI.

“I gave some of our youth players a chance to prove themselves,” Kartal said.

“Kayserispor are challenging to win the PTT 1.Lig this season. For me the result is not important. I will continue to play our young players in the cup.

“Our young players played well, our aim in the cup is to go as far as we can but I will not stop giving our young players a chance.”

Fenerbahce suffered a shock defeat at the Şükrü Saracoğlu in the Turkish cup last night.

The yellow canaries were defeated 2-1 at home in their first Group E clash against Kayserispor.
