Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo said his club was unlucky to drop two points against Sporting Gijon in a Segunda B match.

Omeruo played his first full 90 minutes since returning from a hamstring injury in November.

He made a solid return to the side ending the match with 3 clearances and interceptions, 4 successful tackles, won 8 duels and 86% completed passes.

Gijon took the lead in the second half after Borja Lopez converted a penalty awarded by the VAR in the second half.

Leganes equalised six minutes into added time, thanks to another penalty and converted by Borja Baston.

The match ended in a draw, but Omeruo opined that his side deserved to leave El Molinon with the maximum points.

“Unlucky to only pick one point from a game we deserved to win. We keep going,” Omeruo posted on social media.

Leganes will return to action in the new year when they take on CF Fuenlabrada.
