 Gambia International Ousman Jallow is yet to get his name on the score sheet since scoring March 19th.Ousman Jallow 3

The scorpion has starred in six games for Kazakhstani Premier League side Irtysh Palvador and his profligacy in front of goal is beginning to worry fans. Jallow’s acquisition made much fuzz but that buzz is beginning to wane with the Gambian’s barren run.

He was involved in his club 2-2 draw against leaders Astana. However there’re positives to be counted with his club second on the table, two points ahead of Astana and are yet to lose a game in seven outings. With Ousman’s failure to score, team-mate Gogua from Georgia is helping ease the burden off the ex-Rezespor hitman’s shoulders.

Jallow joined the Kazakh outfit on free transfer after turning his back on former club Helsinki’s contract renewal offer.

The front-man was poised to pen the dotted lines following an impressive display on his season debut.

Ousman’s decision to shun extending his stay beyond 12-months with HJK sparked speculations about his imminent departure amid widespread reports he could seek new pastures in China’s Super League.

The ex-Brondby goal-getter however headed for Kazakhstan;s side Palvador’s whom he impressed while on an outing for HJK against Kazakh champions Astana in the Champions League qualifiers last year.
