Former Super Eagles left full back Taiye Taiwo has hit a purple patch in front of goal for Finnish side HJK Helsinki as he once again found the back of the net to help them to a 3-2 win over Seinaejoen in a Veikkausliiga game.

Taiwo 31, who now has six goals in the league drew HJK Helsinki level in the 55th minutes before Atomu Tanaka 65th minute goal wrapped up the victory for the first placed team in Finland.

The former Marseille,AC Milan,QPR,Dynamo Kiev and Bursaspor defender has now found the back of the net in games against RoPS,PK-35 Vantaa,SJK and Inter Turku where he hit a brace.

He was the only Nigerian on show for the league leaders with the other two Nigerians Nnamdi Oduamadi and Vincent Onovo no where near the match day squad for the game.
