Rivers United attacker Emeka Ogbugh has called on fans to continue voting for him as he hopes to clinch the VAT Wonder Goal Award for Week 32.

Ogbugh’s brilliant volley against Wikki Tourist was nominated alongside goals by Isaac Loute of FC IfeanyiUbah, Shooting Stars’ Abayomi Adebayo and Destiny Ashadi of Katsina United.

“I know that most of our fans came for that game and the goal has been on the internet for a while,” the former Heartland star said.

“I plead for them to go on the internet and (vote) for me. Definitely with their support, am going to win.”

Ogbugh, who scored the second goal in Sunday’s 3-1 win away over Remo Stars also says the result will serve as a morale booster.

“For us to have come away with a 3-1 away win from home. It’s a morale booster.

“Our morale is very high now because we really needed to win that game. If we had lost the game, it would have been a problem (for) us.

Rivers United’s next game is a round of 64 clash against J. Atete FC on Wednesday.

“Yeah, that’s the only source of silverware for us this season. Definitely we are going to approach it with all seriousness.”
