LIKUENA striker Nkoto Masoabi who plies his trade at the South Africa’s National First Division (NFD) side Royal Kings says he doesn’t feel any pressure despite having failed to score so far.

Masoabi joined the Kwazulu Natal outfit at the start of this season from Kick4Life and has so far represented the team in five league matches but is yet to find the back of the net.

“We had a poor start to the new season but now everything is falling into place now and we have won our last two matches which is a positive sign,” Masoabi said.

“I don’t want to put myself under pressure as all as long as the team is winning and I am contributing then I am happy. I know as a striker I am expected to score and I know goals will come so I just have to be patient with myself. I haven’t scored yet but I am still going to score. Here it’s all about team work and whoever scores we are happy.”

Real Kings are sitting second from the bottom of the 16 team NFD table with seven points. They are five points ahead of bottom placed Ubuntu Cape Town after eight matches.

Masoabi said he was confident that his side will not be relegated and said he hopes to help the team finish better than they did last season when they narrowly missed qualification for Absa Premiership play-offs after finishing fourth in the NFD.

“This team is far away from being axed. We have quality players just that sometimes you can start a season badly but what is important is what we do to recover from the bad start. Fortunately, we have managed to bounce back and find out feet. The team was even number four last season and nearly went for play-offs so I am confident we will do just fine,” Masoabi said.

The lanky striker said he is so far satisfied with his input for his team and is now waiting to break his duck.

“I am happy here. I just have to start banging in those goals and I have been working hard to see that I am always up to my best,” Masoabi said.

Real Kings travel to Ajax Cape Town on Saturday for their next match.
