MFM FC striker Stephen Odey says Enyimba captain Mfon Udoh has been his inspiration despite scoring more goals than the former Akwa United star.
Odeh is the current top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) with 18 goals, six more than Mfon.
However, the Super Eagles invitee refused to compare himself with Mfon, who holds the record for the highest number of goals scored in a single NPFL season – having scored 23 goals in the2013-2014 season.
“Mfon Udoh is my senior man,” Odey said after Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Enyimba.
When asked if the Enyimba striker inspires him, he said “Sure”.
On his team’s title hopes, he added: “There’s nothing impossible, Plateau United went away and drew and (Enyimba) came to our home to draw.
“We can also go away to win our away games.”
