Super Eagles star inspires his club to a 1-0 away victory to extend their unbeaten League run to 16

Super Eagles of Nigeria Striker Olanrewaju Kayode continues his excellent run of form for Riza Calimbay's Sivasspor football club of Turkey on Monday night, as he helped them to defeat Gaziantep FK 1-0 away from home, to extend their unbeaten run in the Turkish Super Lig to 16.

The former Manchester City football club of England star retained his spot in the home team's starting eleven, and he was able to impress, as he played another crucial role in his team's deserved away victory.

Coach Riza Calimbay started the Nigerian international in the away team's attack alongside Max Gradel and the duo were exceptional in the hard-fought 1-0 win.

The visitors opened scoring through Max-Alain Gradel in the 30th minutes of the game, through a fine teamwork from Ahmet Oguz and Nigerian Olanrewaju Kayode, to end the first half 1-0.

The visitors efforts to score more goals in the second half of the game were not successful, as the match ended 1-0 in favour of the visiting team.

Olanrewaju Kayode was superb for the home team in the entertaining encounter, and he played a vital part in his team's only goal of the game.

The 1-0 victory over Gaziantep FK has now extended Riza Calimbay's Sivasspor unbeaten run in the league to 16, and that has also taken them to the 5th spot in the Turkish Super Lig table with 58 points from 37 matches played.
