Emenike Escapes ‘Missile’ After Goal

Nigerian striker, Emmanuel Emenike scored his ninth league goal for Fenerbahce only for the tie at Trabzonspor to be abandoned following crowd trouble on Monday.
Emenike put the league leaders ahead at the Huseyin Avni Aker Stadyumu in the 23rd minute, but the game was called off due to safety concerns after objects were thrown onto the field.
After a number of stoppages, referee Bulent Yildirim opted to call time on the match, leaving Fenerbache with a game in hand on their title rivals.
Emenike and his teammates escaped unhurt amidst several objects thrown unto the pitch. The Turkey Football Federation will now rule on the game.
Fenerbache lead the standings with 51 points from 23 matches, three points clear of champions of Galatasaray, who have played 24 games.
