Lagos - Lobi Stars striker Anthony Okpotu says all he wants
right now is to keep scoring for his club.
The forward is keen to return Lobi Stars to continental
competitions by finishing among the top three teams in the Nigeria Premier
League this season.
"Right now I am only focused on every game as the
season goes. And if I have the chance to score in every match I will take the
chance, but it is not about me because Lobi is a team. I am happy I have scored
six goals so far, which is good for me,” he said on SuperSport.
"I want to help Lobi do very well this season. This
club gave me the chance to be a footballer and I can only repay them back,
especially the fans for believing in me. So I hope I can help them win
something or even qualify for one of the competitions on the continent."

The former Al-Ittihad Tripoli man has accounted for half of
the goals that Lobi Stars have scored this season but feels the credit should
not go to just him alone and remained adamant on not setting himself a goal
"I didn't know I have scored that (half of my team's
goals). I must thank my teammates and coaches for that. But like I said, I won't
set any target of the number of goals I want to score," he said.
Okpotu has scored six league goals this season and leads the
scorers' chart in the NPFL. He also has three assists.For
