Nigeria international Awaziem replaced Dimitrios Siovas in the 58th minute and did enough to ensure his side did not concede a goal in the encounter while his compatriot Kenneth Omeruo was not listed for the match.

Prior to the victory, the Cucumber Growers had drawn two games and lost seven. The win lifted them off the bottom of the log with five points from 10 games.

Awaziem will hope to start when Leganes face Real Madrid in their next league game on October 30 while Baba will look to help his side bounce back from their defeat when they take on Osasuna on October 31.
