Babatunde relieved after ending scoring drought


Babatunde Adepoju was relieved to finally end his goal-scoring drought after scoring in our 5-0 thrashing of Bangwe All Stars in the FDH Bank Cup Round of 32 on Sunday.

Before Sunday’s strike, the forward, who rejoined FCB Nyasa Big Bullets on loan from South Africa’s Venda Football Academy in January, had one goal and two assists in eight TNM Super League games.

It was Baba’s first Bullets goal since finding the back of the net in our 3-0 win away to Chitipa United in Karonga on 21 April.

“I am happy after that goal,” the Nigerian, who came on as a second-half substitute to replace Maxwell Phodo, told Bullets Media, “it eases the pressure.”

“But I shouldn’t feel satisfied because a lot is expected of me. I need to keep on pushing and start scoring in each match. The best is yet to come from me.”

The 28-year-old also expressed joy with our return to winning ways after a frustrating period that saw the defending champions struggling to find the back of the net despite creating plenty of chances in the new season.

“This is where this team belongs. We need to win games because we have been disappointing in recent games and from here, we should continue working hard and getting the results.”

Before moving to South Africa, Babatunde won three Golden Boots following his move to Bullets from Mighty Mukuru Wanderers in the middle of the 2021 campaign, taking home the Airtel Top 8 Golden Boot in his maiden season, before bagging the TNM Super League and FDH Bank Cup top scorer’s awards.

He also commented on how our young players are faring at the club, saying the rough patch Bullets have gone through recently should serve as a lesson that football can be very unfair sometimes despite the hard work they put in.

“Now they are growing in the team, they have learned how the team is, they have tested the sad part and they also deserve the good part, so I think they can grow confidence from Sunday’s win and continue striving to do well in the next fixtures.

“So far, so good from them, they played without fear and I am pretty sure that they will continue to be part of the players eager to take the team forward in different competitions.”
