Turkish Federation hands 3-0 defeat to Diyarbakir over fan violence

Bursaspor went top of the Turkish championship on Tuesday when opponents Diyarbakirspor were handed a 3-0 defeat after crowd violence caused their match to be abandoned earlier this month.

The Turkish Federation said in a statement it had imposed the defeat on Diyarbakirspor after the March 6 game against Bursaspor was abandoned in the 15th minute with the score 0-0.

Home fans in Diyarbakir, in Turkey's primarily Kurdish southeast, threw stones at players and officials, hitting assistant referee Kemal Yilmaz and visiting goalkeeper Dimitar Ivankov.

The federation added it would meet again on Friday to decide what action to take after Diyarbakirspor's next match against Istanbul's Buyuksehir Belediyespor was also abandoned, this time in the 87th minute after fans invaded the pitch.

Bursaspor now have a two-point lead over second-placed Galatasaray after 25 matches. Diyarbakirspor are third from bottom.
