The Peace Boys’ striker is optimistic that he will score more goals for his team after scoring two goals against the Owena Whales

Plateau United’s Tosin Omoyele says he is delighted that he has overcome his early season goals drought after he fired a brace in their 5-0 annihilation of Sunshine Stars in Sunday's Nigeria Professional Football League.

The Peace Boys’ fans had hardly settled into the match before Omoyele struck for the home team in the second minute before adding his second of the game in the 76th minute.

And the former Osun United striker stressed that it was tough for him having to wait until the fourth game of the season before opening his goals account.

“I like to score goals and when they refused to come on time, I was not happy with the development,” Omoyele told Goal.

"It started affecting my performance but I thank God that I have been able to score in my last two home games. I celebrated the two goals I scored against Sunshine wildly because I have always wanted to score as many goals as possible.

“It is my expectation that having scored two in this game, I hope to get more for my club to ensure that we win the league title again at the end of the season.

“Sunshine Stars are not a bad side but we were able to overrun them because we were determined to return to winning ways after our unfortunate loss to Kano Pillars on Wednesday.

"We wanted to make a statement that the defeat in Kano was just a one-off and Sunshine only visited us at the wrong time."
