New Orlando Pirates forward hopes to maintain his scoring form for the Buccaneers when they take on their fierce rivals Kaizer Chiefs in a PSL clash at the FNB Satdium on Saturday.

The midfielder-come-striker has netted for Bucs in each of his last two league appearances and he has now set his sights on scoring in his first Soweto derby.

"Scoring goals is something I'm used to, but I have to seriously credit the team. You know, if you want to score a goal it is up to your team mates. So credit must go to them," Wome said on The Sowetan.

"I hope I can keep scoring and obviously, there is a big game coming (against Chiefs on Saturday). I'm not promising anything but you know team work is important," he continued.

The Togolese attacker went on to explain why he left SuperSport United for Pirates on a short-term loan deal last month.

Current league log leaders Matsatsantsa are having a great season under Stuart Baxter, who won two PSL titles with Kaizer Chiefs.

"It has been difficult for me this season. I had an operation and was out for two months. When I came back the team (SuperSport) was already doing well so it was difficult for the coach to change," he explained.

"I got a chance to move and show what I can do. It was difficult at first but now I'm getting game time I'm happy for now," Wome concluded.

Wome, 25, joined Pirates on a six-month loan deal with the option to make it a permanent move at the end of the season.
