Junior Lokosa – Kano Pillars striker

Kano Pillars striker Junior Lokosa has told SCORENigeria his goals have boosted his self-belief this season after he fired his third goal in as many matches thus far.

Lokosa and Godwin Obaje are tied on three goals apiece after three rounds of action in the new NPFL season after the Pillars striker hit target at Rivers United on Sunday.

And the former First Bank of Lagos will attribute his red-hot form in front of goal to his positioning.

“I believe I have got good positioning that is why I have scored three goals so far,” he said.

“It is good that I have scored in every match I have played so far, it is good for my confidence, a major plus to my game even though my goal did not help my team to victory.

“It is too early to discuss the top scorers’ chart, I just want to enjoy my game and take each game as it comes and hopefully I can justify why Pillars signed me as a striker.”

Last season, he scored seven goals after his mid-season transfer from First Bank.

He said he hopes to be back on the winning side against Abia warriors in Kano on Wednesday.

“We are going back to work hard for the three points in the next home fixture after our best was not good enough in Port Harcourt,” he told SCORENigeria

“We were disappointed we lost all three points as a point would have been a positive result for us.”
