Super Eagles forward Brown Ideye ended a five game goal drought for Greek side Olympiakos by scoring in their 2-0 league win over Larissa.

Ideye last found the back of the net against Platanias on the 14th of January, where he scored twice to help his team nick a point. Since then he has endured a goal drought.

He fired blank against Asteras Tripoli, Xanthi, Veria, Iraklis and Atromitos before breaking the duck against Larissa for his 13th goal of the season.

Still in Greece, Nigerian forward Abiola Dauda scored the winner for Atromitos to hand them a 1-0 win away to Asteras Tripoli, and the much needed three points takes them to 11th on the log standings.

Dauda joined the team in January from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, where he was deemed surplus to requirement after suffering a glitch in front of goal. However since moving to Greece he has scored five times.

He scored back to back brace in cup games against Lamia, with his latest goal, which is first in the league taking his tally to five in nine games.
