Golden Boot holder Moeketsi Sekola is confident he can regain his scoring form after a knee injury derailed his progress in the off-season.
Sekola netted 14 goals in 29 League starts in 2014/15, prompting widescale interest in his services.
The 26-year-old, however, has only four substitute appearances to show for this term.
“The knee injury has been a huge disturbance,” Sekola tells KickOff.com.
“My intention was obviously to carry on from where I left off last season but I have now had to go back to starting from scratch again because of the injury. As a striker you need that momentum to get going in terms of performing and scoring goals but once that rhythm is disturbed it becomes a challenge to get back.
“Right now I am working my way back and building on those minutes that I am getting from coming on as a substitute. Once I open up my scoring account then I should be able to move on the way that I want to. That goal will help in terms of building up the confidence.
“The positive with me is that though I have had to start off with this injury I am still working hard on getting myself back to the form that I had last season. I am not feeling discouraged in anyway about my situation because I understand that this game is always full of these kind of challenges. Once I am back to normal then I will be moving smoothly and helping the team get results.”
Sekola adds that he is happy at Ea Lla Koto and is just focused on improving his game rather than clouding his mind with speculative transfer talk.
