Godfrey West, Nasarawa United’s hero in their 1-1 draw against Akwa United on Sunday is relishing his goal-scoring debut for the Solid Miners which earned them a draw at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo.

West who signed for the Solid Miners at the beginning of the season from Rangers had been hampered by an ailment which had delayed his first game for his new club since the commencement of the season.

The former Sunshine Stars and Rangers attacker confirmed to npfl.ng that it has been a tough start for him at his new club after he fell sick shortly after helping the Lafia side to win the pre-season tournament in Kano.

He said it took him time to recover and also took a while before he could regain his composure back after very hard to measure up to the level of his teammates.

“I am indeed very happy that my first start of the season has resulted in a goal for my club. It has not been easy for me after he fell ill and had to start the recovery steps all over,” West told npfl.ng.

“The typhoid fever and malaria really drained me and after then I started the bold step towards recovery. It has been a lot of hard work for me and it was the reason I celebrated the way I did after scoring the equalizing goal.

“I just want to make up for the lost opportunities and play as many games as possible now that I am fully back. It is painful seeing your colleagues playing and you can’t help out.”

He noted that the goal and the important away draw secured against the Promise Keepers have helped to calm him and his teammates down and that they are looking forward to consolidating on their latest feat with a home win against Delta Force in Lafia on Sunday.

“I know how important this draw is to us and it should be seen as the right tonic to help us get back our season,” he continued.

“We can’t afford to make mistakes again as we prepare for the visit of Delta Force in Lafia. We are yet to win a league match and are at the bottom of the league table.

“It is not the right place for us and we must work harder to turn a corner.”

Nasarawa United are last in the topflight table with two points from five games.
