After going five matches without finding the back of the net, Nigerian striker Anthony Ujah has regained his scoring form; as he netted a brace in Werder Bremen’s 3-1 away win over Mainz on Saturday.
Before the game, Ujah had made know his intention to turn the corner against Mainz and he did just that on Saturday scoring two first half goals to inspire Bremen to their third win in the Bundesliga this season.
Ujah grabbed the opening goal six minutes before the half-time whistle and doubled the advantage for Bremen just before the stroke of half time.
Mainz rattled by the quick double by Ujah were again caught flat footed at the back and they were punished once more, this time it was Fin Bartels who made it three for Bremen; three minutes into added time.
Bremen might have added a fourth after the break, although Clemens Fritz was unable to find a way past Loris Karius, before Yoshinori Muto added a late consolation for the hosts as the game ended 3-1 in favour Werder.
Another Nigerian, Leon Balogun was on parade for Mainz and he was booked in the in the 62nd minute.
Before Saturday’s outing, Bremen have lost their last five Bundesliga games and were just one point above the relegation spot.
