Barito Putera equalised thanks to Paulo Sitanggang in the 20th minute.

In the 30th minute, Fabiano Da Rosa scored to put Madura 2-1 ahead.

But in the 89th minute, Rizky Rizal Ripora drew Barito Putera level to end the game 2-2.

The draw means Madura United are now second on 29 points in the 18-team Indonesian league table.

Odemwingie has scored 13 goals in 15 league appearances for Madura United so far in his first season.

Nwokolo's goal against Barito Putera is his sixth in 13 league appearances for Madura United this current campaign.
