Catch up on the players of Nigerian descent that were on target for their EFL clubs on Saturday, December 15.

Despite falling behind twice, Aston Villa were able to get a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw with Oghenekaro Etebo's Stoke City at Villa Park.

Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham fired home from the spot in the 73rd minute to bring the scoreline to 1-1.  It was his eighth goal in his last six matches in the Championship.

Let's go to Montgomery Waters Meadow, it finished all square between Shrewsbury Town and Peterborough United (2-2).

Former Arsenal youth-teamer Fejiri Okenabirhie slotted home from a tight angle to give The Blues a 2-1 lead just before the hour mark.

Okenabirhie, who was once on the radar of the Nigerian Federation before debuting for England C, has scored in each of his last five games in League One.

Remaining in the division, the highly coveted teenager, Josh Maja now has three goals in his last four matches after scoring for Sunderland in their 2-1 win vs Bristol Rovers at the Stadium of Light.

The 19-year-old fired home three minutes after the interval following a weighted pass from a teammate.

In League Two, John Akinde helped Lincoln City beat Morecambe 3-1 at Sincil Bank Stadium in Lincolnshire. He converted a spot kick in the 33rd minute to make it 2-0.

The former Barnet and Wycombe Wanderers man has tallied three goals in his last five games in the fourth tier.
