The 27-year-old once again proved himself in front of goal for Sergei Semak’s side with his match winning effort against the Railroaders

Sylvester Igboun was the hero for Ufa as they defeated Lokomotiv Moscow 1-0 in a Russian Premier League.

The Nigeria international scored the only goal in the Stadion Neftyanik on Sunday afternoon as the Townspeople saw off Yury Semin’s men who are placed second in the league.

Igboun’s effort came in the 76th minute courtesy of an assist from Bojan Jokic as Sergei Semak’s men climb to the seventh spot in the Russian topflight with 17 points.

The forward who has scored Ufa’s two goals in their last three league games, played for the entire duration of the encounter but was cautioned in the 70th minute.

Ufa will lock horns with SKA Khabarovsk for their next league game on Saturday.
