The Olukoya Boys' striker is glad to net his side's first goal of the season, adding that his target is to emerge as the highest goal scorer

MFM FC striker, Sikiru Olatunbosun has expressed excitement after scoring his side’s first goal of the season in their 3-0 victory over Niger Tornadoes at Agege stadium on Sunday.

The forward got the curtain raiser for the Olukoya Boys’ in the 26th minute of the encounter after converting Stanley Okorom’s cross, before goals from Stephen Odey and Adekunle Adegboyega  sealed the win.

As his side continues their campaign against the Anambra Warriors on Wednesday, he has set for himself a big target this season.

“I'm very excited because last season I scored the second goal in our first home match, and this season again, I scored the first goal, and I'm very happy,” Sikiru told Goal.

“We all are very grateful for the victory because the Nigerian league is so tough that anybody can come from anywhere to beat you in your home but we secured three points at home and that is the best thing.

“We are facing IfeanyiUbah on Wednesday and I know by God's grace we will [emerge victorious] or at least pick one point after the game.

“Last season I scored seven goals, this season I must do more than that, I want to be the highest goal scorer in the league this season.

“Some players are bound to move to other clubs, and we have signed some replacements. They were key members of our team last season but now they are gone and we were able to score three goals without them so that means the confidence is there to go and pick points against IfeanyiUbah.
