Persiba's Good Fortune

Persiba Bantul's thrust to the Indonesia Super League is being powered by the goals of 23 year old Udo Fortune. The Nigerian has hit 20 out of his team's 29 goals in their opening 13 games and despite losing yesterday to Persebaya he still scored twice.

Despite his youth Fortune has been kicking round the region for a few years now. He was part of the doomed Spoting Afrique who had one forgettable season on the SLeague. Fortune though had impressed enough

In 2007 he was snapped up by Balestier Khalsa who had a poor season but victories away to Home United and Tampines Rovers had a big say in where the title went that year.

2008 saw him trying his luck across the Causeway with Negeri Sembilan but it was a short lived stay as the following year saw Malaysia slam the door shut on foreigners.

Fortune headed to Indonesia with Arema but he wasn't retained ahead of their ISL title winning season and he spent 2009/2010 playing for Persikab in the Divisi Utama before moving to Bantul ahead of the current season.
