The former Zimbabwe skipper made a return to goal scoring last week as his relegation-haunted side conceded a goal in the last minute to lose 3-2 at home to Peterbrough.

Portsmouth had appeared on course to a valuable point at Fratton Park when Mwaruwari equalised to make the scores2-2.

However, deep into stoppage time, Erik Huseklepp diverted Ryan Tunnicliffe’s low cross into his own net to inspire the visitors to victory.

While he is not happy with the result, Mwaruwari welcomed the fact he was back among the goals.

“I am happy because last time I got my first goal for the club was after around 14 games and this time it is after four or five games so it is a big improvement. I know that if I keep working hard the goals will come,” the player, who is in his second stint at Portsmouth, said in an interview.

It was the Zimbabwean’s first goal for the side since signing with the club during the preseason.

He was hopeful Portsmouth would get a better result against Leeds United this afternoon.

“I hope we can play just as well and win. It will not be easy, but we will need to work hard to win the game. Sometimes we need a bit of luck so let’s hope we have that in Leeds,” he said.
