Ghanaian defender Gideon Baah scored in HJK Helsinki’s comprehensive 4-1 win at Jaro in the Finnish top flight on Sunday.

The 22-year-old scored in the 72nd minute to restore the champions’ lead after Sebastian Mannstrom had opened the scoring after 32 minutes.

Hendrik Helmke had equalized for the hosts seven minutes into the second half.

Baah’s strike is his second this season in the Finnish top flight as he continues to enjoy a rich vein of form since arriving from Honka FC at the start of the season.

Ossou Konan hit a late brace to put the gloss over the impressive team effort of Mika Lehkosuo’s side.

The win sees HJK strengthen their lead on top of Veikkausliiga as they go seven points clear on top of the league with more importantly,  game in hand.

    Goal + 2 assists for Gideon in that game. His team also progressed to the Europa League group stages last week.
