Super Eagles forward has now scored six goals in five games in Ligue 2
Nigeria forward, Josh Maja bagged his sixth goal of the season in the 2022/23 season despite initial criticisms against him in the league.
Maja scored the first of the encounter five minutes into the game.
Julien Maggiotti equalised for Laval in the 56th minute of the game before Alberth Elis’ winner in the 69th minute.
Maja has now played ten games in the league and is helping Bordeaux mount a title and promotion challenge.
Bordeaux currently lead the log with 20 points, ahead of Tolu Arokodare’s Amiens in second place. They lead on goals difference.
Recall Maja was mocked earlier in the season for not getting on board quickly but with his recent vein of form, he has turned doubters around and is now getting the backing of many fans.
Maja represented the Super Eagles under Gernot Rohr and the Franco-German coach had an influence in his staying and signing on at the club.
