In just his third league match into his six months loan deal at the Turkish side, Nigerian forward John Sekidika has netted his maiden strike for loan
Exciting attacker Jesse Sekidika scored his first goal for Konyaspor to inspire the Anatolian Eagle to a convincing 2-0 victory over Denizlispor on Sunday.
After a scoreless first half at the Konya Büyükşehir Belediye Stadyumu, Abdulkerim Bardakci gave the hosts the advantage in the 52nd-minute, before Sekidika put a seal on the victory ten minutes before time.
The 24-year-old forward has not had it easy since joining Galatasaray in January 2020 after enjoying two excellent campaigns at lower league side, Eskişehirspor.
But he failed to convince Gala coach Fatih Terim, managing just 162 minutes of top-flight football and finding the back of the net just once – also against Denizlispor last month.
The former Napredak ace is, however, enjoying a breath of fresh air at Konyaspor, having started each of the Eagle’s last three league matches.
Sunday’s win is Sekidika’s first in Konyaspor and the club’s first triumph in seven league games.
Coach Ersan Parlatan’s side sits 12th on the league title with 27 points.
