Fanendo Adi targets Timbers scoring record over 2 seasons

20 November 2015, 10:04

Abuja - Fanendo Adi will etch his name into the Portland Timbers history books if he finds the net three more times for the Providence Park outfit before the end of the play-offs.

If the two goals he scored against Alpha United in the CONCACAF Champions League are thrown into the mix, the forward has now hit target 28 times across all competitions in the two seasons since he started wearing the green stripes of Portland Timbers.

Over the course of two seasons, Byron Alvarez netted 30 times during the 2003 and 2004 campaigns, followed by ex USA youth international McKinley Tennyson, who notched 29 goals cumulatively from 2002 - 2003.

If Adi registers his name on the score - sheet one more time before the end of the season, the Nigerian would equal the club's single - season
scoring record held by Peter Withe (1975), Fadi Afash (2002), McKinley Tennyson (2002), and Byron Alvarez (2004).

His brace in the 5 - 2 win over LA Galaxy on game week 33, which took his tally to 8 goals on the road, saw him overtake Darlington Nagbe as the
Timbers player with the most goals scored in away games in a single season.

Fanendo Adi and his Portland Timbers teammates will return to action on Monday morning when they square off against Dallas in the Audi 2015 MLS
Cup Playoffs Western Conference Championship.
