The Nigeria international came off the bench to help the Ottomans avoid a home defeat against Mutlu Topcu’s men

Aminu Umar scored a late equaliser to hand Osmanlispor a 1-1 draw against Bursaspor in a Turkish Super Lig encounter on Saturday afternoon.

Five minutes before the interval, Deniz Yilmaz gave the visitors the lead after he got the better of Zydrunas Karcemarskas from the penalty spot.

In their next league encounter, the Ottomans travel to take on 12th placed Kasımpaşa on March 18.
