NPFL top scorers race : I am not in competition with Odey - Mathias

El-Kanemi Warriors’ Sam­uel Mathias has said that he is not in any competi­tion with MFM hitman, Stephen Odey for the league highest goals scorer award.

The Desert Warriors midfielder has downplayed any suggestions that he is competing with the Olu­koya Boys marksman for the top flight’s Golden Boot

From the attacking midfield role, Mathias has scored ten goals while Odey has scored 14 goals af­ter 19 matches.

However, he insists there is no pressure to compete with the for­ward as he is focused on helping his team.

“I have played against Ste­phen Odey and I think he is a good striker and he’s doing well for himself and his team,” Mathi­as said.

“For me, being the second highest goals scorer, I don’t feel any sort of pressure with Odey. There isn’t any kind of competi­tion between me and Odey, he’s got his goals to score and I have mine too.

“My role and focus is to help my team, we want to win every match we play so that is what I want.

“We are like a big family here at El-Kanemi Warriors, we prom­ised ourselves to finish the race. We have enjoyed working togeth­er as a team and we shall by God’s grace fulfill our promise at the start of the season to meet our set target,” he concluded.
