The Nigerian calmly slotted home to give Barnsley the lead a minute before half-time.

On 65 minutes, Adeboyejo came close to scoring a third goal but saw his header saved by Carey in the Bristol City goal, before setting up Berkovits who made it 3-1.

The former Arsenal academy player has highlighted that that he models his game on ex-Newcastle United star and Nigeria international Obafemi Martins.

''Obafemi Martins was one Nigerian striker that I thought was good and I tried to pick up things from him that I can add to my game in terms of his pace and power,'' he told allnigeriasoccer.com.

Barnsley snapped up the talented Nigerian striker on a three-year deal in November 2017.
