KHAMA Billiat says the love he has received since his return home has helped him find his way back to competitive football even though he is yet to fire on all cylinders.

The 34-year-old has now scored three times in the last two matches and was man-of-the-match in the 2-1 win over Chicken Inn at the Heart Stadium on Saturday.

“With where I am coming from, and some things that I went through, it has not been an easy journey,” he told Zimpapers Sport.

“At the end of the day, you tell yourself that home will always be best, they will never fall short of love and I feel it.”

Billiat opened his scoring account away to champions Ngezi Platinum Stars as he equalised for Yadah, who had given away a 1-0 lead to trail 2-1 to the hosts.

 “We had a good game, we started well, put them on the block-foot,” he said.

“However it was a game of patches, there was a moment we did well and a time we did otherwise which means that there are things we are still to learn as a team.

“We need to work hard as a team and learn to understand each other in certain ways,” he said.

He added:

“I should always be up for the task, the responsibility comes with pressure so it needs me to work hard to make sure that I am always at my best to help the team,” he said.

“It is not easy but we have young players who need confidence and moments like these give them that.

“Even playing back home, in front of my family, fans and friends has a lot of pressure but I am enjoying it and, as a team, we take every moment positively.

“I personally appreciate the support and love and my prayer is to stay injury-free as I am yet to fully rediscover myself.”
