TAKUNDA Benhura is eager to find his scoring touch again.

He is set to feature when Ngezi Platinum Stars host FC Platinum in a Castle Lager Premiership tie at Baobab on Saturday.

The 2023 Golden Boot winner is still to get off the mark after firing blanks in the Castle Challenge Cup and the opening Premiership match.

The 22-year-old started both games.

“I am very confident that I will retain my Golden Boot title this season. I scored just 13 goals last term against my target of 20. 

“But that was fine since the goals helped my team win the championship and I also got to win the Golden Boot accolade.

“It was my first full season in the top-flight and I was happy with how everything panned out. This is now my second term and I am targeting more than the tally I got last year.

“I might have played two games already and failed to hit the back of the net but I believe sometimes it’s not all about scoring but it’s about helping the team by being the perfect team player.

“I have been getting into the areas and I believe I can now start scoring goals. As a striker, the preoccupation is to score goals.”

He added:

“I am in the team to help the team score goals and win matches. 

“I am working hard every day to try to perfect my finishing. I am surrounded by top players in the team and there is no reason why I should fail to score goals.

“Ngezi Platinum Stars is a big team and we can only help maintain that status by continuing to win matches. 

“I am eager to retain my Golden Boot just like I am eager to see my team retain the championship and win other trophies we failed to win last season.”
