If I don´t remember false, I have said we don´t use locative case while expressing the time of the day. It is also the same when using "-ki".


sabahki, ölenki, ikindinki, akamki, geceki


It is also the same for the words we don´t use with locative case. For example:

yar覺n, dün, bugün, geçen y覺l, gelecek hafta, gelecek ay, vs...

-->yar覺nki, dünkü, bugünkü, geçen y覺lki, gelecek haftaki, gelecek ayki vs...


Yar覺nki maç saat yedide. (The match (that is) tomorrow is at seven (o´clock))


borç (the debt)

Geçen ayki borcunuzu ödememisiniz. (You haven´t paid your debt (that was) last month)


önce (before, fore)

önce+ki-------->önceki (the previous one, previous)

sonra (later, after)

sonra+ki------->sonraki (the next one)
