Cambuur's Ogbeche delighted to return to scoring ways

14 December 2015, 08:08

Lagos - SC Cambuur coach Henk de Jong sang the praises of his Nigerian forward Bartholomew Ogbeche after his brace assisted the team beat NEC Nijmegen 3 - 1 in the Eredivisie on Saturday.

Before yesterday's contest at Cambuurstadion (Leeuwarden), Cambuur had not won a game in the top - flight for over eight months, with their last victory achieved on April 5, 2015 when they beat Go Ahead Eagles 1 - 0.

Ogbeche first struck in the 20th minute before restoring Cambuur's one - goal advantage four minutes after the interval, taking his tally in the Eredivisie to 7 goals from 13 games.

"Bartholomew is a special guy and a special player. Thirteen years ago he played at a World Cup . He is a very good player," Henk de Jong said in his post - match comments, according to FOX Sports.

"Bartholomew takes the lead and helps me . He has a feeling for goals and feels he must succeed. He is an assistant for a coach and that's nice.''

Ogbeche, formerly on the books of PSG and Middlesbrough among others, was delighted to find the net again after firing blanks in his previous three games.

"We train a lot of corners , but sometimes you have to improvise, otherwise it becomes too easy for opponents. I'm very happy to score," the Cambuur number 18 stated.
