Taiye Taiwo played for the same team the length of the game while Brown Edeye was was a 58th minute substitute for Marco Ruben.

The former Under- 17 and Under- 20 has now scored five goals in the Ukraine League.

“I am happy to have done it again. I will keep doing my best in terms of scoring and see if my goals could lift the club to secure a Champions League ticket,” Haruna told MTNFootball.com.

“I am still very much confident that we can play in the Champions League next season but we must be very ruthless and be thoroughly focused in the remaining games.

“It’s great for me to score every week. I hope to keep this form so that it will yield something good for me at the end of the season. Hard work has really paid for me and I have shamed my critics.
