Yakubu’s early season struggle continues

 

Aliyu Yakubu is yet to open his goal account for the season as he made his seventh league appearance albeit from the bench in AFC Eskilstuna’s away defeat to Halmstad last weekend.

Yakubu only got a cameo in the defeat, coming off the bench in the final three minutes of regulation time.
It was the visitors who took the lead, Amar Muhsin with the opener in the 34th minute, but Halmstad responded with Joseph Baffo’s stoppage time penalty.
The winner did come on the hour mark from Ghana’s Sadat Karim’s goal handing AFC their second defeat of teh new Superettan season.
