Utaka’s Match Winner Clinches It for Sivasspor

John Utaka scored the winning goal for Sivasspor in their 2-1 win over Galatasaray at the Eylul Stadium (Siva) on Saturday.

The Nigerian, who has now scored six goals in 18 appearances, delighted the home fans all evening with his impressive runs and was always a threat to Galatasaray defence.

He came close to opening his account in the 58th minute of the tie when his low shot from outside of the area clattered against the post, after being played through by Karabulut.

Utaka got it right on the hour mark, this time another Karabulut inch-perfect pass set him through on goal. The forward kept his composure to round Fernando Musilera in goal for Gala, before slotting his effort into a deserted goal.

The win helped Sivasspor move up to fourth in the Super Lig table with 43 points from 29 matches.
