The 29-year-old scored just two minutes into the Super Lig—Round 7 clash as Trabzonspor edged past their visitors 2-1 at Papara Park in Trabzon, Turkey.
His early goal set the tone and got the home fans buzzing within the opening few minutes of the encounter.
Anastasios Bakasetas beautiful cross following a corner was met with a brilliant header from the Nigerian forward from the centre of the box to the bottom right corner of the net.
25 minutes later, Anastasios Bakasetas doubled the lead for Trabzonspor as he powered a free kick with a left-footed shot to the bottom left corner to make it 2-0.
After 35 minutes on the clock, the home side pulled one back. Endri Çekiçi combined beautifully well with Fredrik Midtsjø to hand Pendikspor a life line.
Paul Onuachu and his teammates went into the first half break with a slim lead but were fully in control of the encounter, and they quickly resumed the second part with the same momentum.
It’s three consecutive goals for the man on loan from EFL Championship side Southampton in Süper Lig, his third goal of the season in three appearances for Trabzonspor. The striker also has an assist to his name.
