Sofapaka striker Kepha Aswani says he missed the joy of scoring goals so getting one over Western Stima FC on Wednesday brought back a feeling he was used to before.
Kepha, who has been on the sidelines for quite some time now, opened the scoring for Sofa against the Powermen in a match that they would go ahead to win 2-0. While speaking to his club’s official portal, the former AFC Leopards point-man even assigns himself more tasks ahead.
”A striker’s joy is always to score and I had missed that joy for such a long time. Now that I have that scoring touch I want to see to it that I score as many as I can in the next remaining games,” he says.
Aswani hasn’t played much in this 2018-19 campaign due to injury and his last goal came against Bandari in December, a 2-1 loss to the now 3rd placed team on the KPL table standings.
He adds that it’s a relief to break the duck after featuring for three games upon return.
”It is such a relief because it has been such a long time. I have had a long season coming in and out of injury and I have not played for such a long time. Over the last three games, I have come back to action and I was really yearning to get that one goal,” he says.
Sofapaka, despite being home to the league’s second-best goal scorer in Umaru Kasumba, and also having the top crop of goal poachers in Kenya’s top flight, have had injury plagues and as Aswani returns, Umaru will sit out the next three games.
Other lethal names in John Baraza’s playing unit include John Avire who has 7 goals and Stephen Waruru who is on 4. Umaru leads Sofa’s charts on 16 goals.
