The Gambia international ended his goal drought this season, helping his side clinch their seventh win of the campaign

Musa Barrow registered his first goal of the season for Bologna in their 3-1 victory against SPAL in Saturday’s Serie A game.

The 21-year-old striker had played seven league games for Atalanta this season without a goal, and joined the Red and Blues on loan earlier this month in search of better fortunes.

In his appearance against ‎Leonardo Semplici’s men, however, the Gambia international ended the drought with his 59th-minute strike, shortly after replacing Federico Santander.

Earlier, Francesco Vicari had cancelled out Andrea Petagna’s opener for the Stadio Paolo Mazza outfit after turning the ball into his own net in the 24th minute.  

Three minutes after the hour mark, Andrea Poli sealed the victory for the Red and Blues after benefitting from Roberto Soriano’s assist.  

The victory ensured ‎Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side climbed to 10th on the league standings with 27 points from 21 games.

Barrow will hope to maintain his new-found form when Bologna take on Brescia in their next league match on February 1.
