Mathare United striker Clifford Alwanga vows to lick sweet Sony Sugar

Mathare United striker Clifford Alwanga has vowed to end his four match goal drought when they host Sony Sugar on Sunday.

Alwanga, who joined the club in January from Tusker, has rediscovered himself at Mathare United where he has scored ten goals in 24 appearances; a feat that has left him just five goals behind the league’s leading scorer Elvis Rupia.

With Rupia having moved from Nzoia Sugar to Zambian side Power Dynamos, Alwanga has set his sights on returning to scoring ways to stake a claim on the top scorer gong.

“I know I have a big chance (of winning it) because the difference is only five goals and we have ten matches to go. It will be a big achievement considering that this is my first season here and I didn’t perform well last season,” an optimistic Alwanga told the club’s official website.

“I have not been scoring recently and it really pains me because that is my job as a striker. I am very strong mentally and I have been working on that in training. So it is now about burying the chances that come my way.

“We have been scoring goals as a team but we have also been conceding. We just need to avoid conceding and we will start winning matches. If we can keep a clean sheet on Sunday then we stand a high chance of bagging the maximum points.”

He will draw confidence from his first leg exploits against the Millers where he scored the equalizer in the 2-1 win at Awendo in March.
