JDR STARS midfielder Temptation Chiwunga believes it is high time for him to breakthrough into South Africa’s DStv Premiership.
They are currently enjoying life at the summit of GLAD Africa Championship.
Last season Chiwunga finished as the club’s top goal scorer after netting nine goals and the introduction of his compatriot Ishmael Wadi (now with seven goals) has ignited their team’s strike force in their quest for promotion.
In an interview with H-Metro Sport yesterday, Chiwunga aired out his desire for an overdue promotion.
“I believe there is more hunger to fight for promotion this season because we learnt from how things went for us last season.
“Now that we are at the top of the log, we just want to continue pushing for more and getting the results.
“It is going to be a tough task, every game is going to be tough but we are determined to fight all the way,” said Chiwunga.
Regarding the repeat of their last season’s slip up, he said:
“Yes, we were very close, we gave our all but somehow it did not happen as we had planned.
“This season we have new players and a different approach and energy levels are higher than before.
“There is no excuse, we need to get this ticket at all cost. It is high time.
“As a team it is in our hands. We just have to apply the right attitude, maximum concentration, hard work and unity.
“We can achieve our goal if we keep on working collectively.”
