The former Liverpool star was handed a role to play in his team's starting XI following his outstanding performance for the club since his arrival at the team in the last summer transfer window on permanent basis after his loan spell.
The Nigerian star was yet again superb in the front of goal as he scored the only goal for his side in the show of the night, but his efforts were not enough to seal the whole three points for the Urs Fischer's side but rather rescued a crucial away point which placed them at the 5th spot on the table.
The visitor opened the scoring sheet in the 31st minute of the game as Taiwo Awoniyi gave his side the lead to make it one nil which was the only goal that separated the two sides at half time.
The tempo of the game got intensed in the second half as they both put up some physical, tactical and technical displays but none was able to found the back of the net until the late minute to the end of the game when Wahid Faghir got a late equaliser for the host to make it 1-1.
After every other attempts from both sides to add more to the tally of the night, all were not successful as it ended one all draw at full time thereby making it no victor no vanquished.
The result of the night for Union Berlin has now taken them to the 5th spot on the table with 16 points in 9 games played and as such be hoping to be back to winning ways in their next fixture, so as to continue their pursuit in the competition.
Taiwo Awoniyi having scored his 11th goal of the season will now be looking forward to continuing his impressive goal scoring form to keep helping his team in their next game.
