Emenike continues to fire in the goals with a brace against Gaziantepspor

The Nigerian striker is in hot form as he hit his third league goal in two matches in Turkey

Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike continued his great form in front of goal by scoring a brace for Fenerbahce in a 3-1 win over Gaziantepspor in the Turkish Super Lig on Friday.   

Emenike had scored a dramatic winner against Kayseri Erciyesspor last Sunday coming on from the bench. But on Friday, the Nigerian started the match and scored the opener in the 14th minute and completed the scoring in the 85th to give the Yellow Canaries a 3-1 win.

His first goal in the 14th minute was through a header though he could be said to have been marginally offside. He was also involved in Fenerbahce's second goal that was scored by Moussa Sow in the 39th minute.

Emenike crowned his good work on the day with the third and clincher in the 85th minute. The goal was created by good work down the left flank by Salih Ucan, who dribbled past two defenders before laying the ball on a plate for the Nigerian to tap home with his left foot.

The win moves Fenerbahce to 22 points from nine matches and Emenike’s goal haul to three in five league appearances and the  striker has scored five goals in his last three matches for club and country and seems to have re-discovered his potency in front of goal.

Also on Friday, John Utaka played 90 minutes for Sivasspor as they beat Erciyesspor 2-0 to stay third on the league table
