MFM FC forward, Stephen Odey is looking to become the first player to break Mfon Udoh's goals record in the Nigeria Professional Football League, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Udoh who plays for seven-time NPFL champions Enyimba International FC of Aba, scored 23 goals in the 2014/2015 season to emerge as the all-time top scorer in the top flight.
Odey netted his sixth goal of the campaign in his side's 2-1 win against champions Enugu Rangers on Friday night which maintained their hundred percent record at the 'Soccer Temple', Agege Stadium, and stated afterwards that he was determined to score more goals this season.
"It will be great if I can become the all-time leading scorer in the league," Odey told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"I have scored six goals already and I'm determined to score more before the end of the season.
" It's not going to be an easy task as defenders will be out to stop me now, but I will keep working in order to achieve my objective.
"I also hope to stay healthy and avoid injuries too."
The Olukoya Boys will next face Katsina United at the Muhammadou Dikko Stadium on Wednesday in a matchday-11 fixture.
MFM FC lost their last away fixture 1-0 to ABS, but he is hopeful they will get a better result this time around.
The young striker said: "It's difficult to play against teams from the northern part of the country especially if you consider the distance but we are getting use to that now.
"Aside from the game against FC Ifeanyiubah which we lost 4-0, we have performed well in all our away games and we will strive to do well against Katsina United."
