Nigeria international striker, Olarenwaju Ayoba Kayode scored the only goal that secured Sivasspor a win against Petrocub of Moldova in a UEFA Europa Conference League second leg encounter at Yeni Sivas 4 Eylül Stadium, Sivas on Thursday.

The 28-year-old who is playing his second season at Sivasspor on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk, found the back of the net on 65 minutes.

The win saw the Turkish Super Lig club progress to the next round 2-0 on aggregate, having secured a 1-0 win in the first leg on July 22 at Stadionul Zimbru, Chisinau, where Kayode played from the start up till 80th minute when he was replaced by compatriot, Leke James.

The former Manchester City striker scored six goals in 33 matches last season, to help Sivasspor finish fifth on the log behind Besiktas, Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor .

He is expected to do much better this term, starting with their 2021-2022 Super Lig season's opening day's home game against Konyaspor on August 14.
