ZPC Kariba striker David Temwanjira has admitted to their struggles in the second half of the season.
Temwanjira appeared to be running away with the golden boot in the early stages of the season while still at Shabanie Mine but he has been struggling since he switched to Kariba.
He is third on the scorers’ charts with 11 goals, four behind top goal scorer Rodwell Chinyengetere (FC Platinum) while Triangle’s Lameck Nhamo is second with 12 goals.
“Life sucks when you are not doing what you love the most. Scoring is fun and I am missing that fun.
“I don’t know where I am getting it wrong in the second half of the season though I am being marked heavily.
“I am not banging goals as I planned to,” said Temwanjira.
In the first half of the season, the striker scored nine goals.
He, however, believes he still has time to turn the tables and win the award.
“In the second half, teams are now fighting harder and making the job difficult for us strikers.
“I cannot say I relaxed, I have been working hard just like I have been doing in the first round but this time around my job is looking difficult,” he said.
Temwanjira said it’s not about the new combination at Kariba.
“We cannot say it’s because of the team I am at now, or the combination.
“I don’t think it’s because of the combination I have now, I cannot compare that.
“I just don’t know where I am getting it wrong. The consistence part is gone now, I’m not regularly scoring like I used to do in the first half of the season,” added Temwanjira.
He is optimistic he still have time to redeem himself.
“It is not yet over. We still have five more games to play and I am looking forward to score goals and redeem myself.
“It’s the world of football, you can never know what the future holds, and with hard work I know positive results are bound to be our daily bread.
“I will do my best as always and do better for the team and for myself also,” he said.
