Out of favour Super Eagles forward Sunday Mba emerged as the hero for Yeni Malatyaspor scoring twice to help them secure a 0-3 victory over Elazigspor.

27 year old Mba scored his side second goal in the 47 minutes to put them 2-1 up before scoring his brace in the 67th minute to help them to a comfortable 3-0 win and moved them up to 13th in the second division table in Turkey.
