Former Flying Eagles forward, Bright Ejike is optimistic that his goals will earn Heartland a place on the continent at the end of the season.
The forward is league joint highest goal scorer with Sunshine’s Tunde Adeniji on 11 goals and the former junior international says he won’t be derailed in achieving his set goals as he would redouble his efforts when the second stanza of the NPFL resumes.
“I am happy with my performance in the first stanza and I am hoping to better it this second stanza. I know it won’t be easy because the league is getting more competitive. I am confident that we will find a way of returning Heartland to the continent and also to ensure that I emerge as the highest scorer. What we are left with is the league after the shocking way we were eliminated from the Federation Cup. We have decided to put our ouster from that competition behind us and we are focusing all our spleen on achieving our objective via the league,” Ejike told Goal.com.
The Naze Millionaires are fifth on the league table with 32 points from 19 games behind Sunshine Stars, Enyimba, Wikki Tourists and Warri Wolves
