Gambian Ousman Jallow didn’t feature in Çaykur Rizespor’s 1-0 win over bottom-placed team Güngörenspor in the Turkish Bank Asya 1. Lig after accumulating a maximum of three yellow cards which lead to his suspension but Rizespor won the game thanks to a Severin Brice Bikoko penalty in the 51st minute.
Ous Jallow’s partnership with Severin Brice Bikoko has proven a success although the Cameroonian has begun to be reduced to a second-half player.
In his first season in the Turkey, Jallow has notched in 14 goals in 29 league matches for Rizespor.
The Gambia international striker has established himself in Rizespor and has a spot in the team and it is believed that he will likely be a transfer target Süper Lig [top tier] clubs in Turkey given his impressive record on goals.
Meanwhile in Estonia, Yankuba “Mal” Ceesay’s JK Nõmme Kalju continued their imperious early season form with a 4-0 drubbing of JK Tammeka in Tartu.
Jüri Jevdokimov opened the scoring, sending Tammeka’s goalkeeper Andrus Lukjanov the wrong way from the penalty spot following a foul in the box. It was 2-0 shortly after half time via a comedy own goal from defender Uku Lilleväli following a mix up with Lukjanov.
Kalju’s captain Alo Bärengrub then added two goals to make it more comfortable, the first a header from an Oliver Konsa cross and the second a tap in following a corner.
Coach Igor Prins introduced Mal Ceesay in the 87th minute in order to seal the win and Mal did just that as Kalju strolled to their seventh consecutive victory in this year’s Estonian Meistriliiga season.
They will host the same team again next week at the Kadrioru staadion in Talinn.
