Lagos - Abia Warriors of Umuahia in-form striker, Onyekachi Peter says his target this season is to emerge as top scorer in the Glo Nigerian Premier League, and consequently helping his team to pick a continental ticket.

Speaking to newsmen at the Umuahia Township Stadium shortly after Abia Warriors beat visiting Gombe Utd 2-1 in a week 18 encounter, Peter, who scored one of his side’s goals, said his target is to score at least 25 goals at the end of the season to break Jude Aneke’s 20-goal record in Nigeria’s top flight.

The red hot striker, who is currently Abia Warriors’ top scorer with five goals, commended his team mates for their oneness on the pitch which has seen him score four goals in as many games and assured his fans that his best is yet to come.

“Without them, I can’t do it alone,” he said.

He also had some good words for the technical Crew led by Issa Ladan Bosso, noting that the experienced tactician has made him a better striker through his pep talks and fatherly advice.

Like any other footballer in Nigeria, Peter said he hopes to take his skills abroad to continue his career while expressing optimism that national team handlers will spot him one day to enable him fulfill one of his hearts desires of playing for the country.
