Niger Tornadoes striker Ismaila Gata is the leading scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) after he netted a brace in his team’s 2-0 win over strugglers Ikorodu United in a Week 12 game yesterday. Gata has now scored seven goals.
He is closely followed by Lobi Stars Tony Okpotu, Ibrahim Mustapha (Wikki Tourists) and Chisom Egbuchulam from Enugu Rangers.
Gata opened the scoring in the seventh minute, when he converted a spot kick after an Ikorodu United defender handled the ball in the vital area.
He completed a brace after half an hour of action.
