Be Forward Wanderers striker Babatunde Adepoju has promised to score more goals for the Lali Lubani Road side.
Babatunde took his tally in the TNM Super League to 10 goals from nine games after scoring a hat-trick against his former employers, Masters Security, during Wanderers’ 6-1 win at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on Monday.
The towering Nigerian forward attributed his success to hard work.
“If it had not been for hard work, I wouldn’t be at this level. I will continue talking about hard work,” he said.
Babatunde said it was a day of mixed fortunes after scoring against his former side.
“It feels good but it is really painful also because they made me who I am. They gave me the chance to be at this stage I am in the country,” he said.
Wanderers Coach, Bob Mpinganjira, said team-work was contributing to Babatunde’s success.
“We are playing as a unit, so the players know what to do when attacking and defending. It is the formation that we are using that is bringing out the best from most of the players,” he said.
Wanderers are second on the table with 22 points, one behind leaders Kamuzu Barracks who have played 10 games.
Modern Super League strikers hardly score 10 goals in a season as was the case decades ago when the likes of Aggrey Kanyenda, Heston Munthali, Ganizani Malunga and Bob Mpinganjira used to net close to 30 goals.
