Emem Eduok Scores Winner, Gets Sent Off In Turkey


It was a day of delight and despair for Nigerian forward Emem Eduok who scored for the second consecutive game to hand his side a 1-0 win over Rizespor, but was sent off before the end of the game.


Eduok scored the only goal of the game ,that could have seen as many as three Nigerians lining up but Kenneth Otigba missed out through suspension while Obaboana was once again left on the bench by Rizespor.

The 22 year old old scored with just two minutes left to play in the first half before receiving the marching order, after picking up two bookings in the 65th and 83rd minute.

He will now be suspended for Kasimpasa next game, a situation which will end his fine run of form in front of goal and in the team after starting their last two games, and netting on both occasion.

So far he has made 10 appearances this season, raking up 590 minutes in the process in his first season in Turkey where he is on loan from Tunisian side Esperance for the rest of the season.
