Bechem United midfielder Augustine Okrah has insisted that it still possible to catch up in the Ghana Premier League goal king race after shooting blank against Asante Kotoko at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park in Bechem on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old has scored eight goals this season but he has gone four games without a goal and now currently trail Kotoko striker Etouga Mbella five goals in the goal king race.

However, he is optimistic that he can catch up with the Cameroonian if he doubles his efforts in the second round of the season.

“I’m a player and if I can catch up [with Etouga Mbella], it depends on my hardwork,” Okrah told AshesGyamera.com.

“I have to double my efforts and involve myself in games more than before. I need to work hard utilise opportunities that will come my way in the games left,” he added.

Okrah won the award eight seasons ago during his first stints with Bechem United, after bagging 16 goals to beat former Kotoko striker Seidu Bancey in a heated race.

He then moved to Sweden to join BK Hacken before making his name in Sudan with Al Merriekh and Al Hilal.

After Sudan, the ambidextrous forward joined Smouha and North East United in Egypt and India respectively before returning to Ghana to rejoin Kotoko in 2019.
