The Nigerian, who sealed his move to the club just last week following the expiry of his Rovers contract, scored in the 86th minute of the match.

 

The victory over the Super League leaders moves the 29-year-old's new employers up to fifth in the league, with 27 points from 17 matches.

 

Yakubu is amongst a trio of top African footballers who have recently made the move to the Far East, following Didier Drogba and Seydou Keita's moves to Shanghai Shenhua and Dalian Aerbin respectively.
