Preview: Trabzonspor v Kayserispor – Return of the storm?

Trabzonspor take on newly promoted Kayserispor at the Avni Aker stadium hoping to get their season back on track.

The Black Sea Storm are without a win in their last three games dropping into 12th place and have also been knocked out of the Turkish Cup.

Kayserispor meanwhile look set for a relegation battle and are not in the best of form either.

Trabzonspor could be without Oscar Cardozo and José Bosingwa but Cavanda returns after serving his suspension.

Newly appointed manager Hami Mandirali is still without a win for Trabzonspor but the club legend could just get his first victory against a Kayserispor side that are struggling to adapt to top-tier football.
