The Super Eagles returnee came on as an 84th minute substitute for Brazilian forward Maicon, just seconds after Caicedo restored his host’s lead
Denisov’s 41st minute goal had given Lokomotiv a first half lead, but Joaozinho equalized for Krasnoder on the hour-mark. Caicedo’s 83rd minute goal restored the lead for the hosts before Durica scored in the 88th minute to seal the win.
The game afforded Nsofor a chance to make his first appearance for Lokomotiv his season.
The 26-year-old was an unused substitute for the Railway Men in their 2-1 loss to Ahmed Musa’s CSKA Moscow last week.
