After grabbing a late strike to help his side hammer Denizlispor 4-2 in their last outing on Sunday, the 24-year-old scored twice this time around to seal a 4-0 win for the home side.

Ahmet Yazar opened scoring for the home side 18 minutes into the game with a stunning chip over the goalkeeper. Ezeh then doubled the lead three minutes later after Genclerbirligi slipped and gave the ball away, the forward bounced on the lose ball to give his side a 2-0 lead.

Francis Ezeh turned provider moments later as Tuzlaspor thought they’ve grabbed a third, but the referee ruled the goal off as offside in a tight close call.

Ezeh kept on tormenting the visitor as his solo run lead to Lamine Diack making it 3-0 with a simple tap in just three minutes to end of first half before the Nigerian forward completed the rout two minutes later to compound the misery of the visitors and seal the win and three points for the home team.

Francis Ezeh should have grabbed his hat-trick with another solo drive but his curled effort managed to hit the right side of the post to deny him the goal.

The Nigerian forward has now scored five goals and two assist in nine appearances for Tuzlaspor this season.

Tuzla are currently in 10th position with 41 points after match day 30, just three points above their visitors who are in 12th spot.

With six matches left to play this season, the Hakan Kutlu side will be looking to build on their victory when they face Buyuksehir next week Wednesday.
