Gloucester City’s Akwasi Asante continues his impressive run of form as he nets two in an action-packed game against Bradford Park Avenue

Akwasi Asante was on the scoresheet once again as his side drew 4-4 with Bradford Park Avenue in an eight-goal thriller at the New Meadow Park.

The frontman took his league total up to seven, averaging a goal a game, just one goal behind teammate and league leading goalscorer, Matt McClure (8).

Asante expressed his happiness at scoring again but was dissatisfied with the overall team performance.

 “I’m happy with the two goals but I’m disappointed with the performance,” Asante said.

“It’s always good to get on the scoresheet but disappointed that we couldn’t get the three points.”

The Tigers came from behind twice to secure a point against Park Avenue to extend their unbeaten run to seven games.


The front three, Asante, McClure and Bernard Mensah scored City’s four goals but they were unable to find a winner before the final whistle.

Asante and McClure have a combined 15 goals in total making up almost two thirds of City’s goals and the frontman says he is enjoying the strike partnership.

He said: “It’s a good partnership. We’re linking up well and I enjoy playing with him.

“I feel like I’m doing well. Seven goals in seven games so it’s going well. I’ve just got to keep it up now.”

City conceded early on in both halves and they have failed to keep a clean sheet this term and the striker stressed the importance of avoiding defensive errors.

“We’ve got to learn from today. We’ve got to cut out those silly mistakes. We’ve conceded every game so something isn’t right,” Asante said.

City travel to Hereford next and they will be hoping to continue their strong run of form.
