Ujah saves Werder Bremen from defeat



In from Nifemi Daniel . . .
Super Eagles striker Anthony Ujah was in fine form Sunday as he helped his German club, Werder Bremen salvage a point in their 1-1 draw against fellow Bundesliga relegation candidate, Stuttgart.
Stuttgart made the better start and Lukas Rupp put the home side ahead in the 33rd minute when he rifled the ball to the back of the net, three minutes after Bremen’s Anthony Ujah should have had a penalty when he was kicked by Timo Baumgartl.

Ujah scored his seventh goal of the season in the 71st when he was first to Clemens Fritz’s blocked shot to slot the ball inside the post.
“We had the opponents under control and didn’t make the most of it. Then we concede a stupid goal,” Rupp said of the 36th goal Stuttgart has conceded in 15 games.
Ujah’s form has been one of the bright spots in an otherwise bad season for the Die Werderaner who are being drawn into the relegation dogfight.
Werder Bremen are in 15th position on the Bundesliga table with 14 points from 15 matches.
