Moses Simon says his first goal for Gent in the playoffs has helped in taking off the pressure of not scoring a goal in the year 2016, a barren run which extends to over 15 games.

Simon last scored in December 2015 in Gent 3-0 win over Kortrijk before scoring a solo goal against KV Oostende in the playoffs on Saturday to seal a comfortable 2-0 win for Gent who are now three points behind Anderlecht in second position, the last UEFA champions league spot for teams in Belgium.

“It”s a nice feeling to score as always but this is special as it took a whole lot of pressure off my shoulders as well as helping my team move close to our ambition of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.

Since moving to Europe in 2014, this season is his worst season in terms of goals as he has scored just three times as opposed to previous seasons when he scored 20 goals spread over three season, two at Slovak side AS Trencin and one at Gent.
