Two well taken Ibrahim Olawoyin goals set Turkish Division One side Ankara Keçiorengucu en route to winning ways in a last-gasp 3-2 win over Istanbulspor on Saturday afternoon.
Olawoyin, 23, was handed a start in his favourite left wing role by Keçiorengucu’s new head coach Taner Taskin and he rewarded his boss with his first two goals for the club.
The former Rangers International star headed his side in front slightly against the run of play in the 24th minute when he powered home Taskin Calin’s cross at the far post with a very difficult header.
The hosts held onto the lead till half time but were pegged back nine minutes after the break when Ali Yaspar levelled for the visitors.
Olawoyin however restored his side’s lead in the 66th minute when he finished expertly from close range, rounding off a move he started to send the over 1,000 fans at the Aktepe Stadi into some frenzy.

Istanbulspor were not going to let go easily though and they pulled level once again through Emir Gultekin who slid home from close range after a slack defending by the hosts in the 74th minute.
Keçiorengucu however left it late, at the seventh minute of additional time to claim full marks through Azerbaijani winger Vusal Isgandarli who lashed home a volley from close range.
The win puts an end to Keçiorengucu’s unwanted run of five consecutive defeats which has left them at the foot of the Division One table.
