Super Eagles Striker Nets First Super Lig Goal After 17 Attempts
Sivasspor humiliated Ankaragucu away from home on Sunday, with a Nigerian forward contributing to the crushing victory
Super Eagles striker Olanrewaju Kayode finally found his scoring range in the Super Lig for Sivasspor as coach Riza Çalımbay’s men handed Ankaragucu a 4-1 thrashing at the Eryaman Stadyumu in Ankara.
It was Kayode’s first league goal in 17 appearances since he joined the Braves on loan from Ukrainian giants Shakhtar Donetsk in September.
The former Manchester City doubled Sivasspor’s advantage shortly after the break as Mark Gradel had given the visitors the lead with a first-half penalty.
An Oguz’s own goal gave the hosts momentary respite, but further strikes from Erdogan Yesilyurt and Mustapha Yatabare secured for Sivasspor their first victory in the last six matches.
Kayode might have experienced a drought in the Super Lig, but he has been exceptional for Sivasspor in other cup competitions.
The 27-year-old striker has smashed in four goals in five games for the Turkish side in the Europa League, and he has also notched another effort in two Turkish Cup appearances.
Sivasspor manager Riza Çalımbay would be delighted with the latest win that lifts his side to 11th on the league table after 23 rounds of matches.
