Lazarous Kambole admits he is eager to break his duck in South Africa’s Premier soccer League after so far drawing a black for leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
The Zambia international was a high-profile signing from Zambian side Zesco United, and though he has helped his new team to the top of the Absa Premiership table, has yet to find the back of the net in 291 minutes, or almost five hours, of football this season.
He is not about to hit the panic buttons yet, but admits it will be a relief when he finally does score his first goal.
“Football is like that. Of course scoring is one of my attributes‚ so I’m actually working on that but I am not frustrated,” he told reporters on Wednesday.
“The pressure is making me push even more harder at training. It’s very important because I just want to give the supporters something to smile about.”
Kambole says that his lack of goals aside, he believes the team are moving in the right direction after taking 10 points from a possible 12 at the start of the new campaign.
“We are on the right track‚ we are doing well,” he says. “But this is the right time to be humble and continue working hard in training and I hope‚ and I know that this season we will win silverware.
“The pressure is there for us to win the title this year because we have not won anything for the past four years.”
Chiefs are next in action on Saturday when they host Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership match, an opposition they have only beaten once in their last five meetings.
