Enyimba striker Ugo Leonard with his newly wedded wife. He dedicated his match winner at Remo Stars to her

Ugochukwu Leonard has told SCORENigeria he hopes to score more goals after he fired the match winner for Enyimba at Remo Stars on Sunday.

“I am delighted to get the only goal that gave my club the away victory against Remo,” Leonard told SCORENigeria

“This goal is priceless to me, it is a goal I will always remember even after I have stopped playing football.

“I dedicate it to my newly wedded wife.

“The goal came when I needed it most as I have not been a regular player in Enyimba this season, but for the second round I have worked so hard to fight for a first-team place and I was rewarded with a playing time by the coach and I took advantage of that by scoring the important goal that gave my team all three points away from home.”

The former Nasarawa United striker also predicted Enyimba will be targeting another result on the road against Sunshine Stars.

“Sunshine Stars lost at home to Lobi Stars on Sunday and we will compound their woes by getting another result in Akure,” Leonard promised.

“We are battle ready for the second round of the league. Watch out for Enyimba!”
