20 year old Nigerian forward Friday Fred who plays for Lillestroem has taken Norway’s Eliteserien league by storm this season with six goals to his name from the first seven games of the season.

Fred scored 11 goals last season from 26 games but after just 7 games this season he is just 5 goals away from equaling his last season total.

He has scored in the last five consecutive games he has played and so far this season he only failed to score in just two games against Bodo/ Glimt and Start.

Still searching for his first hattrick of the season he has however scored a brace this season for sixth placed Lillestroem, a feat he achieved in the game against Sarpsborg.

On a personal note has opened a two goal lead against his closest challenger for the top scorer award, Deshorn Brown of Valerenga and going by his current goal scoring rate he could end up scoring twice the amount of goals he scored last season.
