 EFL : Wycombe's Onyedinma, Carlisle United's Kayode, Colchester United's Oteh on target
Three players of Nigerian descent were on target for their respective clubs in the English Football League on Tuesday, February 23.

We begin in the Championship. Lagos-born winger Fred Onyedinma opened his league account for the season as Wycombe Wanderers defeated Reading 1-0 at Adams Park.

The Chairboys clinched the win thanks to Onyedinma's close range finish three minutes after the restart.

Two divisions lower, Carlisle United lost 3-2 at home to Tranmere Rovers despite taking an early lead through Rotherham United loanee Joshua Kayode.

Kayode finished into the roof of the net after a great delivery into the box from Nick Anderton in the third minute, taking his tally in the League Two to 5 goals in 24 appearances.

Still in the division, Queens Park Rangers loanee Aramide Oteh's 66th minute goal was only a consolation with Colchester United losing 2-1 to Exeter City at the JobServe Community Stadium.

It was his first goal since joining Colchester United in the January transfer window.
