Nigerian Exports: Solomon-Otabor, S. Ameobi, Ugbo, Okenabirhie, Akintunde, Eze ScoreCatch up on the Nigerian players that were on target for their respective clubs in the European Leagues on Saturday, April 14.

We start off at Bloomfield Road where Blackpool faced Fleetwood Town. The home team came from behind to beat the Cod Army 2-1, with Viv Solomon-Otabor volleying home the equalizer two minutes from time.

Still in League One, Chelsea loanee Ike Ugbo opened the scoring after 19 minutes and had another cleared off the line as MK Dons lost 2-1 to Doncaster Rovers.

Ugbo was set up by former Arsenal schoolboy Chuks Aneke, who put in a full shift.

In the League Two, Nigeria 2014 World Cup star Shola Ameobi helped Notts County secure a 3-1 win at Colchester United, with the striker writing his name on the score-sheet in the 69th minute.

The former Newcastle United man scrambled the ball home from six yards after Forte and Virtue had been denied to put Notts County 2-1 ahead.

A division lower, James Akintunde notched a second half brace for Chester FC but the goals were not enough as The Blues ended up losing 4-2 to Boreham Wood.

Elsewhere in the division, former Arsenal youth-teamer and Nigeria Football Federation target Fejiri Okenabirhie curled an effort off the post in the 49th minute as Dagenham & Redbridge claimed a 2-1 win at Wrexham.

In the Austrian Bundesliga, Emeka Friday Eze netted his second league goal for Sturm Graz in their 3-0 rout of SV Mattersburg at the Merkur Arena. The 21-year-old struck in the 57th minute.
