By Olayinka Olawole
Osun United FC striker Oluwatosin Omoyele is happy to score a brace against AS Racine Football Club of Lagos in their 3-1 win in the week 17 encounter of the Bet9ja Nigeria National League (NNL), but also revealed his frustration anytime he is not finding the net, as he hungry for more.
The former C.O.D Football Club of Lagos forward registered his goals in the 42nd and 44th minutes despite trailing by a lone goal scored by Olafimihan Gafar. In a game that saw former Super Eagles striker and coach of AS Racine, Victor Agali sent off early in the first half for his unruly behaviour.
The first goal was from a rebound, after AS Racine goalkeeper Adeyemi Taiwo couldn’t handle the ball from an Hakeem Olalere’s free kick. While his second came just two minutes after his first as he shoots from an awkward angle to put his side ahead. Omoyele’s last goal before his before brace came in the 1-0 victory over Abia Comets last week.
Speaking after the game, Omoyele told SR Sports that he is more focus to increase his goal tally for the Omoluabi Giants in the current NNL season. “Yes, I am more confident now than I since I came here,” he said after the all important win. “Now I just want to score some more and win for Osun United.
“Strikers always want goals and goals and more goals and that mentality for me is the same and I am very happy with these two goals. My goal target in the first round of the NNL is ten and am just three shy from it. I want to score goals and when I don’t I get frustrated. Now it’s better because I am scoring again.
It was always going to be an important game for us after losing controversially away to Akwa Starlets. We had to make sure we got the result. Our focus is now is working very hard and getting the results for the team ahead of our promotion to the elite league.
Speaking further, Omoyele insists Osun United have the ability to succeed in its bid to gain promotion to the elite Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL). “We know we have to keep winning at home and pick a lot of points away to achieve our aim. Its indeed a very difficult task, but we won’t relent.
“We have to keep pushing. It is good we ended the first round with a very good result and we need to do more with tqo games at hand against Unicem Rovers and My People FC. Now we have to reflect and focus on the next round,” Omoyele concluded.
Meanwhile, his brace in the basement battle hot on the heels and has taken his goal rush to seven in sixteen games and the ubiquitous striker is confident that they can carry on with this kind of win in the remainder of their games in the ongoing season.
