Benjamin Chukwuka Onwuachi continued his scoring form in Greek football as he recorded another brace in Kavala's 3-0 away victory at Agrotikos Asteras on Wednesday.
Ioannou had fired Kavala ahead in the 4th minute to the delight of the travelling fans. But the home side showed strong resilience until late in the game as it turned into the Onwuachi show as hit his brace in a spate of three minutes. He fired the first in the 82 nd minute and added the second three minutes later to bury the stubborn Agrotikos Asteras side. Onwuachi who has suddenly hit a rich vein of scoring form in the past two weeks thanked his own side's supporters for their patience and said: "Everyone around Kavala has been great with me. "Certainly you cannot doubt yourself when the people around you are believing in you and I believe in myself as well." Onwuachi who only joined Kavala in the summer from Uefa Champions League campaigners APOEL Nicosia told KickOffNigeria.com. "If you look around other clubs may not have been so patient but here it is totally different. "Fans would have had a go at me but there has been nothing like that from the Kavala fans, it has been love at first sight and I’m grateful that my teammates and coaches have been very supportive." The former FC Ebedei star has played in Italian, Belgian and Cypriot leagues in the past. His most successful spell in European football was in Cyprus where his goals helped APOEL Nicosia to the Cypriot title last season. His ambition of playing in the ongoing UEFA Champions League was blocked by financial disagreement between both Greek side Ionikos and APOEL.
