Premier League: Aina On Target  As Fulham, Burnely Share Points At Turf Moor

Ola Aina was on target as Fulham shared points with relegation rivals Burnley in their Premier League clash at the Turf Moor on Tuesday.

Both teams battled to a draw in the first half with the hosts coming close late on.

Fulham took the lead in the 49th minute with Aina chesting home from Ademola Lookman’s corner with Robbie Brady unable to clear the ball off the line.

Burnley hit back almost immediately as Ashley Barnes was afforded acres of space to slot home in the 52nd minute.

Josh Maja, Ademola Lookman and Tosin Adarabioyo were also in action for Fulham in the game.

The draw does not do too much to ease Fulham’s relegation worries and they remain six points away from safety.

Burnley – who have not lost at home to Fulham since 1951 – move above Brighton into 15th with an eight-point cushion from the bottom three.

    Ola aina is no doubt the best right back we have in the super eagles at the moment, and am really so proud of him for the kind of player he has groomed himself to become over the years.

    But at times i begin to wonder what on earth will coach of the super eagles (Gernot Rohr) gain or achieve by relegating him to the bench, in most of our matches, it baffles me a lot and i see no reason why a player of his talent will be facing such unfair treatment by coach Rohr, its really unbelievable and dishearting.

    Well i just feel Rohr is being to sentimental towards this player called (Aina) when it comes to selecting of players, but he should be able to understand that he can’t afford to loose our upcoming afcon qualifiers against benin and lesotho respectively.
    cause if he does fail i be the number one person, to lead the protest calling for the immediate sack of coach (Gernot Rohr).

  • Aina plays more like a wing back, he has the ability to keep running up and down the flanks through out a game without getting tired. His passes and crosses are accurate and he can play with both feet very well. The only negative part of his game is when defending against very physical players or very skilful players he sometimes falls short defensively but he is improving this side of his game and he is defending much more better. He should be a starter for the Super Eagles if not for anything else, his mobility on the full back position. But it seems our coach prefers a stagnant full back these days. I look forward to see the formation and players that will be used in our upcoming games.
