Tunisian side CS Sfaxien had their Nigeria import Junior Ajayi to thank for scoring the lone goal in a 1-0 win over CA Bizertin which sent them back to the top of the league.

Ajayi struck an hour before the half hour mark to help Sfaxien reclaim top spot in the league, a position they lost to Esperance over the weekend.

Aside his goal keeping their title dreams alive the goal was the 250th goal in the history of games between CS Sfaxien and CA Bizertin.

The Nigeria U-23 forward who turned out for Shooting Stars in the Nigeria top flight league before joining the Tunisian table toppers has scored six times in the 16 games he has played for them.

At Sfaxien his Nigeria teammate, Kingsley Sokari also had a 90 minute to savour against CA Bizertin and the duo will soon be joined by Lukman Zakari once he turns 18 in December.
