Peter Utaka is making a big impression at Japanese side Sanfreece Hiroshima scoring twice in their 3-0 win over Vegalta Sendai.

The brace took his season tally for the club to five in all competitions and it was his fourth in the league and his third in his last two games.

He is already four goals alway from his last season tally of 9 from 28 games for relegated Shimizu-S Pulse in just five games for Sanfreece Hiroshima.

32 year old Utaka moved to Japan after five seasons in China where he scored 37 goals before leaving mid way through the season in 2014 for Shimizu S-Pulse where his 9 goals failed to save them from relegation to the second division in Japan.

Prior to moving to the Far East he played in Denmark for OB Odense scoring 42 goals in three and half years.
