Utaka nets 4th of the season



Nigerian winger, John Utaka scored his fourth goal of the season for French club, Montpellier HSC on Matchday 21 of Ligue 1.

Utaka netted in the 56th minute but Montpellier went down 2-3 to Olympique Marseille at the Stade Vélodrome with Andre Pierre-Gignac netting the winner at the death.

The defeat saw Montpellier slip to 9th on the Ligue 1 log with 29 points from 21 games.

The 30-year-old opened his season’s account in Montpellier's 3-1 win over OGC Nice in October and netted his second with an excellent solo effort in the 28th minute as his side beat Ajaccio AC on December 8, 2012.

Utaka, left out of the Nigeria team for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, has scored six goals in 43 appearances for the Super Eagles.
