Dolphins coach believes in striker

29 April 2015, 13:37

Port Harcourt - Dolphins head coach Stanley Eguma believes Ifeanyi Egwim can reach the 20-goal mark in this season's Glo Premier League, but only if he works at it, Supersport reports.

Eguma explained that he knows "Egwim has the potential" to score 20 goals and now wants him to show his capabilities of achieving that feat this term.

The Dolphins gaffer also revealed that the striker has been told that the 20-goal mark is a target he should work towards achieving this season with the Port Harcourt club.

“For the last two seasons Egwim has been our top scorer, but last year Emem [Eduok] came up and scored 20 goals.

“It is something that has to do with hard work. I believe that Egwim has the potential and all that it takes to score 20 goals but you cannot do that unless you work hard and that is the challenge that has been given to him,” Eguma said.

Eguma now appears to have turned to Egwim for goals this term after the departure of Eduok to Esperance Sportive de Tunis, and the failure to keep Peter Ebimobowei and Christian Pyagbara after both strikers pulled the plug on loan deals with the club.

Egwim is in his fourth season at Dolphins. He joined from Rangers in 2012, and has failed to reach double digits of goals in each of the four seasons at the club.

Last term he scored eight league goals for the Port Harcourt club.
