New arrival at Royal Excel Mouscron, Taiwo Awoniyi showed early signs of returning to the top scoring form he had with the club last season, as he made the best of his second debut with a well-taken goal for the club.
Awoniyi is back at Mouscron, after an ill-fated loan spell with fellow-Belgian top-flight side, KAA Gent in the first half of the season, and the ex-youth international showed his quality with aplomb.
Footballlive.ng reports that Awoniyi, who is on loan from Liverpool of England, put aside the woes he faced at Gent, to romp home Mousconr’s match winner against KV Oostende.
Awoniyi, who hit nine league goals for Mouscron last season, scored on Sunday in the 68th minute after getting off the bench in the 64th earlier.
Though Awoniyi failed to score a single league goal in 16 appearances with Gent, the product of Imperial Football Academy of Odogbolu, Ogun State has hit the ground running back on familiar hunting ground.
His effort helped Mouscron snatch a 2-1 home win that took them up to 14th on the table with 20 points from 22 matches, six points clear of relegation spot, and Awoniyi’s reaction was overwhelming.
“I am extremely happy to start so well in my first game back at Royal, and that my goal helped us win this important match,” Awoniyi posted.
