A brace from Nigeria U-23 striker Junior Ajayi inspired Sfaxien of Tunisia to a 3-1 win over E0 Sidi Bouzid which took them to the top of the league in Tunisia.

20 year old Ajayi scored in the 35th minute to draw Sfaxien level before adding his second of the game nine minutes from full time which increased their lead to 3-1.

Ajayi signed from Shooting Stars where he was on loan from 36 Lions of Lagos is proving to be a shrewd acquisition by the league title hopefuls as he continues to score vital goals in the run in to the title.

The brace took his season’s tally to 8 from 19 games but more importantly helped Sfaxien leapfrogged Etoile du Sahel to move top of the table on 55 points, two more than their closest rival who were in CAF Champions League action.

His Nigerian counterpart at the team Kingsley Sokari was also in action for the entire duration of the game with Lukman Zakari the third Nigerian on the club’s book not yet eligible to play competitive games until he turns 18 in December.
