Ekene Awazie took his season’s tally to 7 goals in the Nigeria Professional Football League, with a brace in FC Ifeanyi Ubah’s 4-3 defeat to Wikki Tourists at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium on Saturday, June 13.
The lynchpin scored in the second half, after his side went down by four goals within 60 minutes.
Awazie’s brace was his sixth and seventh goals in a succession for the Anambra Warriors.
Nevertheless, his efforts so far this campaign isn’t reflected in FC Ifeanyi Ubah’s season, with the team sitting 18th and struggling to survive relegation.
Although Ekene has scored nearly 90% of the team’s total goals of the season, Uche Okagbue’s men languish at the relegation zone of the table.
Their next big test is coming up on Sunday against Heartland in Nnewi.
