Aswani, who signed for Al Nasr in December, had netted thrice going into Sunday’s match, and was the architect once again scoring the opening goal. It was his fourth goal of the season since joining the league, having netted twice against Al Taliya and once in the derby draw against Dhofar.
Harambee Stars midfielder Jamal ‘Malo’ Mohammed also featured in the crucial win for Al Nasr.
Aswani told Goal.com on Monday that he was eying to score fifteen goals before the end of the season. “I have settled in well and my work now is to score goals for my team. I joined while the second leg was starting but my target is to score at least fifteen goals before it concludes.”
Despite Aswani’s form, his former club Thika United says the team has adequately replaced him. “We have acquired Ezekiel Odera from KCB. He is a young and focused lad who has a proven record in the striking department."
"We also have Kennedy Otieno, the boy who scored against Gor Mahia.... I believe the duo will add value onto our squad,” said the Brooke side sponsored assistant coach James Omondi.
Omondi - who was part of the national team squad that featured in the 2004 African Cup of Nations in Tunisia - expressed delight that the team managed to retain the services of defender Cliffton Miheso amidst interest from South African side Supersport, adding he believes the team will improve on the 5th position registered in the league last term.
