Kamau: It was something I wanted to add to my game


City forward Bruce Kamau has already doubled his goal tally for the Club since last season and the winger believes that he’s seeing his pre-season work come to fruition.

Kamau’s brace against the Brisbane Roar on Friday night was his first A-League double which secured the three points for his side at AAMI Park.

Kamau found the back of the net once last season – coincidentally against the Roar – and the Kenyan-born forward will be looking to use his Round 1 form as a springboard for the rest of the season.

“It was a pretty good start to the season to get a win most importantly and to contribute with two goals is even better,” Kamau said.

“It’s something that I wanted to add to my game. I’ve been working on it in the pre-season so hopefully that will pay off this year.

“I think it’s just practicing and repetition. You get that confidence and come game day, you’re ready to deliver.

“The two goals is a good start and it sets something up for me. Heading into the next game, it gives me that confidence.”

However, Kamau was honest about his team and his own personal performance, saying there was room for improvement on all fronts.

“To be honest, I don’t think I played that well but obviously I managed to score twice which is good and that will help lift that confidence. Improving on my performance is something I will be focusing on for my next game,” he said.

“Watching the game back, I looked at the clips and even my memory of the game, I just think that’s my personal opinion.

“We weren’t at our best. We still have a lot more to give and can play a lot better than what we did but it’s positive coming away with a 2-0 result at home and still not playing your best football.

“Going to the next game, we’ll be looking to improve a few things but we’re going out to win against Victory.”

That time to improve will come this Saturday night in the Melbourne Derby and Kamau believes after his side’s Round 1 win, they will be able to take it to another level in the midst of a derby.

“You feel like that there is a hype around it, the league has kicked off and everyone is excited,” he said.

“This is the first time you are going head to head for the season. It’s a big game and I think well be up for it.
