Nyasa Big Bullets veteran striker Chiukepo Msowoya is confident that the ongoing Cecafa Kagame Cup in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, will help him regain his scoring form.
Msowoya is finding life difficult in the TNM Super League this season, with just a single goal to his name.
The last time the former Malawi National Football Team attacker scored for Bullets was on April 26 2021 when he netted Bullets’ equaliser in the 2-1 victory over Civil Service United at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
The forward’s struggles in front of goal made his place at the regional competition doubtful considering that Bullets have recently signed two potent strikers Babatunde Adepoju and Anthony Mfune.
However, Msowoya was picked for the trip and grabbed the opportunity of starting in Bullets’ first match with both hands on Sunday.
Msowoya scored from the spot to help Bullets force a 1-1 draw in their Group A opening fixture against Young Africans.
The former Orlando Pirates goal poacher was also on target in Bullets’ second fixture on Wednesday against Uganda champions Express.
Msowoya came off the bench to cancel Muzamiri Matyaba’s goal to force a 1-1 draw against Express.
The two goals have seen the Malawian cruising to the top of the goal scorers’ chart.
Speaking in an interview from the coastal city Thursday, Msowoya said he was happy to have helped his team collect two points.
Bullets have one more match to wind up their group assignments and Msowoya said he would continue working hard so that he could remain in contention for the golden boot award.
“A striker is counted for the goals he scores. I am indeed struggling to score in the Super League but this tournament is my turning point. I will do whatever I can to help my team reach the semifinals of this competition,” Msowoya said.
Bullets wind up their group matches with a showdown against South Sudan’s Atlabara Saturday with hope of claiming their first win in the tournament.
Bullets are second in Group A of the contest with two points from two matches and will need a win to progress to the last four.
