Shola Ameobi Goals Can’t Prevent Drop Into Turkish Div 2 Relegation Zone

6 years ago

Shola Ameobi has been amongst the goals but that hasn’t prevented his new club Gaziantep falling into the Turkish second tier relegation zone.

Like Newcastle United, Shola’s new club are third bottom with four points and haven’t managed a league win so far this season.

On Saturday the former Newcastle striker made it three goals in four league matches but it still wasn’t enough to bank Gaziantep’s first three points.

Shola opened the scoring on nineteen minutes but Elazigspor hit back with two of their own, leaving it to Ameobi to save a point late on with an equaliser on seventy five minutes.

Turning 33 on Sunday, Shola will be hoping for an upturn in his team’s fortunes and a first win and escape from the relegation zone, when Gaziantep are next in action against Karsiyaka a week on Sunday after the international break.
