Mohamed Buya Turay’s goal rescued a point for AFC Eskilstuna following their 1-1 with IFK Gothenburg in their Allsvenskan encounter at the Gamla Ullevi on Monday.
The Sierra Leone-born registered his third goal of the new campaign.
The 22-year-old striker, who began his career in Sweden as third division player a few years ago, is now making the headlines in the Swedish top flight.
Turay last season AFC’s top scorer in Superettan with ten goals, was very impressive again today.
After a goalless first half, the deadlock wasn’t broken until the 52nd minute a goal from Gothenburg’s Tobias Hysén.
However, Buya Turay came to the AFC rescue in the 64th minute with his pace nicking the ball away from the Gothenburg’s defender to fired home the equaliser.
Gothenburg pressed forward in search of a late winner in the closing stages, but their visitors managed to stand firm.
“I’m happy for the team, we’re playing well,” he said. “Last week it was a disappointment not to have won all three points.
“Today’s point away from home, a good point. Gothenburg is a difficult place to come,” Turay told footballsierraleone.net.
