Kenneth Otigba scored one of the goals for Kasimpasa in their 3-2 win away to Rizespor, with Bright Edomwonyi scoring as well for the losers.
Otigba drew first blood in the 33rd minute of play with the opening goal of the game, before further goals in the second half gave them a healthy 3-0 lead four minutes before the one hour mark.
However, they had to endure a nervy finish to the game with Rizespor scoring two goals in two minutes, with one coming from their latest Nigerian recruit Edomwonyi.
The final minutes were played out with Otigba playing a big part in helping Kasimpasa hang on to their lead, while Edomwonyi was left frustrated at the final whistle despite the joy of scoring his first goal for his new team.
The other Nigerian at Rizespor Godfrey Obaboana was an unused substitute in the game, as the manager gave some of his regular players a rest ahead of their weekend league tie. Emem Eduok was also not dressed for Rizespor.
