The Yellow and Mauve striker believes he can score 15 goals in the second round of the season following his hat-trick last weekend

Medeama striker Bernard Ofori has set sights on achieving a personal target of 19 goals this season in the Ghana Premier League.

The 25-year-old scored four goals in the first half of the season but sent signals of his readiness to achieve his aim in the second round by hitting a hat-trick against debutants Bolga All Stars last weekend.

“I scored only four goals in the first round of the season but I have set a target of scoring in all our home matches,” Ofori told Medeama FM.

“I’m targeting 15 goals in the second round to make it 19 goals in total and I thank God that I've started the second round with a hat-trick.

“The target is possible to achieve and I hope more goals will come with a little bit of hard work.

He added: "I am confident this year will be my year of breakthrough although, I have not seen or been told anything.

"I believe in God and I know he will take me to the promise land."

Ofori is just a goal behind topscorer Nicholas Gyan who has eight goals and he is expected to play a huge role as Medeama travel to face Elmina Sharks next weekend.
