On loan Liverpool forward Taiwo Awoniyi once again proved his goal scoring abilities by scoring the lone goal for his loan side Mouscron in their 1-2 loss to Standard Liege.

Awoniyi struck in the 49th minute to cancel out Sebastian Locigno own goal which put Standard Liege ahead in the 33rd minutes, but Orlando Sa restored Standard Liege lead with a goal 15 minutes from full time.

A late rally by ‎Mouscron to draw level ended up with Standard Liege hitting them on a counter, which forced them to concede a penalty tucked home by Edmilson Junior on the dot of regulation time to kill off any potential chance of a late comeback by Mouscron.

Despite his team losing the tie, Awoniyi is finally delivering on the promise that made Liverpool sign him few years ago from Imperial Academy in Nigeria as the goal was his fourth League goal in 8 games, and more impressive his fourth goal in six games.

He is presently enjoying his most prolific season since Liverpool decided to send him out on loan in search of regular games. His other loan spell has ended with either the forward scoring one or two goals.

At German side FSV Frankurt he scored just once from 13 games, while last season he scored four goals for NEC Nijmegen in 21 games. This season his goal scoring streak has even lead to talks of him being invited to the senior national team of Nigeria.
