Stoke City midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo hit top marks at the weekend, as he was recorded with 7.2 points out of ten in his outing with The Potters.
Footballlive.ng can report that Etebo’s top performance, after weeks of battling from the bench, was a breath of fresh air for Stoke, as the former English Premier League side romped to victory against Leeds United.
Etebo’s performance Bet365 Stadium helped Stoke keep hope alive of staying on in the lower division, while the English Championship table-toppers, Leeds, stuttered in their surge to promotion.
Though the former Warri Wolves, Fariense and Las Palmas midfielder lost his starter’s spot since the arrival of Nathan Jones as Stoke boss, Etebo shook off all lethargy to make the best of his latest starting spot.
Etebo, who played all 90 minutes of the tie, completed 53% of his passes, made one key pass, won nine of 15 duels, made one clearance, achieved one interception and won all four of his tackles.
On the team level, Etebo would be excited to see that the win moved Stoke to 14th on the table with 38 points from 28 games, but they still lie eight points out of the promotion play-off spot.
