Akwa United striker Mfon Udoh is the current top scorer in the 2018/19 Nigeria Professional Football League season.
The player has scored ten goals, and with the NPFL playoff still ahead, he still has the opportunity to increase the tally.
Udoh, who still holds the record of the Nigeria Professional Football League all time highest goal scorer with record 23 goals, dismissed suggestions that he may be under pressure to score more during Playoff.
“I think i have the capabilities to score goals, which i am used to ", Udoh told www.npfl.ng and added, “I will score in the playoff by God grace but it is not like I am under any pressure to do so.
“If at all there should be any pressure, it should be to win the playoff and become champions of NPFL with Akwa United, knowing fully well my team is yet to win the league before. So, this is an opportunity to do that in grand style”, he declared.
The playoff kicks off June 4 in Lagos with Udoh’s Akwa United competing alongside five others to determine the 2019 Champions after teams played in two groups of 12 teams. The top three in each group qualified for the playoff.
The others are FC IfeanyiUbah, Enyimba International, Rangers International, Kano Pillars and Lobi Stars.
