I feel great, says own-goal Bhasera

JOHANNESBURG - Zimbabwe leftback, Onismor Bhasera (Pictured), has opened up about his bittersweet experience last week that saw him overshadow a great performance with an own goal.

The Plymouth Argyle fullback, in last Wednesdays league match against MK Dons, scored a contender for the N-Power League One Goal of the Season, but later scored against his own goalkeeper as his side eventually won 2-1. However, the Zimbabwean, who signed for the club in 2009, chose to focus on the positives.

I feel great after that goal," he told the Plymouth official website last Thursday. I took [the ball] from the centre and ran past two or three guys and just struck it. I could feel it this one is definitely going to go in, added Bhasera, who also denied MK Dons an equalizer by clearing a header off his own goal-line before being substituted by Jim Paterson at half-time.

Meanwhile, he felt the win was just reward for the efforts he and his team-mates have put into their work recently. We have been working very hard. I think we deserved this. We have been so unlucky in the past couple of weeks - we have been working hard, but couldn't get results. But we showed ourselves. We deserved to win - we played well in all departments: we defended well and attacked well. That is what you get if you play well. We hope to continue this run when we play again this weekend at Charlton. We want to come home with three points. Coming here and playing well shows that the guys have got spirit.
