On February 11, Mouscron travelled away to face Standard Liege in another league game and lost 4-3.

Despite the loss, Awoniyi was impressive as he scored two goals and provided an assist.

Just like in the game against Standard Liege, Awoniyi provided the assist for Mouscron’s first goal.

And on February 25, Mouscron were guests to Anderlecht in a league game and lost 5-3.

Awoniyi was on target for Mouscron to bring the score to 4-1. He scored three goals and had two assists in four games in February.

Since his loan move from Chelsea to Hull City, Ola Aina has been a regular, appearing week in, week out for the Championship club.

Aina’s impressive performance saw him nominated for Hull’s January Player of the Month Award.

The 21-year-old has gone on to make 31 of Hull’s 33 Championship games this season.

In a league away game against Preston North End on February 3, Hull lost 2-1 with Aina in action for 90 minutes.

Hull went away again on February 10, to face Nottingham Forest for a league game which they won 2-0. Aina saw 90 minutes of action.

On February 20, Middlesbrough defeated Hull 3-1 in yet another league tie with Aina playing the full game.

And in another league game against Sheffield Wednesday on February 23, Aina, on for 90 minutes, helped his side win 1-0. The Nigeria defender underscored his importance to Hull City by playing the full 90 minutes in each of their four matches in February.

JUNIOR LOKOSA (KANO PILLARS)

Junior Lokosa has shot to fame in this season’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) thanks to his goal-scoring feat for Kano Pillars.

Lokosa, who is the current top scorer this season, has so far scored nine goals in 10 league games.

The 20-year-old striker continued his goal scoring run in the NPFL on February 4, when he scored one of Pillars’ goals, converting from the penalty spot in a 2-0 win against visiting MFM.

Pillars were guests to Sunshine Stars on February 11 for a league clash but fired blanks for his side.

He was back on the score sheet for Pillars on February 18 when they hosted Enyimba for a league game and drew 1-1.

And on February 25, Lokosa got Pillars’ only goal in their 1-1 away draw against Rangers in their league tie, taking his tally for February to an impressive three goals in only four matches.
