LOAN WATCH: Liverpool forward Awoniyi continues goalscoring run for Mouscron

20-year-old Liverpool loanee Taiwo Awoniyi scored on Saturday to help Royal Excel Mouscron to a 2-2 draw.

The Nigerian was able to score in the 26th minute to give the Belgian side a two-goal cushion, after an earlier Fabrice Olinga goal, in the 9th minute.

The goal has brought his tally to four from eight appearances for the Jupiler League club.

However, after halftime KV Mechelen were able to score two goals, one in the 75th minute, followed by an Elias Cobbaut goal on the stroke of full time, to take home a share of the points.

Awoniyi took to Instagram after the game: “Not the result we wanted but we keep on fighting"
