Demba Ba one goal away from breaking his personal record


Demba Ba is one goal away from breaking his personal goal scoring record in one season.

The Senegalese international scored his 19th goal of the season in bizarre fashion against Mersin Idmanyurdu.

Ba has scored with both feet and his head this season but his 65th minute winner came as a result of rebound off his backside.

The powerful striker scored 19 goals in the 2012-13 season where he played for both Newcastle and Chelsea.

The 29-year-old has been in prolific form since joining on a £5.2 million move from Chelsea in the summer.

Ba has 19 goals and two assists in 25 appearances for the Black Eagles in all competitions so far this season.

The powerful forward has 10 Süper Lig goals this season, making him the fifth highest goal scorer in the league behind Burak Yılmaz, Fernandao and Gekas who have 11.

Trabzonspor striker Oscar Cardozo leads the goal scoring table with 12 league goals.
