Onismor Bhasera wants to weigh in with goals for Greens
ONISMOR BHASERA is convinced he will not have to wait much longer for his first goal of the season for Argyle after coming ever closer to scoring.
The Zimbabwe international was signed by the Pilgrims in March 2010, when they were still in the Championship, to play at left-back.
Over recent times, however, Bhasera has been used on the left of midfield, which has given him the opportunity to push forward into scoring positions.
He could have had a hat-trick in the first half of Argyle's 1-1 draw against Southend United at Home Park last Saturday, but could not convert any of his chances.

Bhasera also headed narrowly wide when the Pilgrims played Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park on Tuesday.
The 25-year-old believes it is only a matter of time before he gets a goal.
Bhasera told Herald Sport: "I could have scored in the past three or four games. I have been trying to get in the right positions.
"I just need to keep doing that and I'm sure a goal will come soon."
Argyle drew 1-1 at Wycombe after on-loan Aldershot Town striker Guy Madjo scored in the 50th minute to cancel out a first half goal from the home team.
Bhasera, though, had a good chance to equalise shortly before half-time when he was picked out by a cross from midfielder Alex MacDonald but sent his header wide.
"It was very close, I thought it was in myself," said Bhasera. "I couldn't believe when I saw it going outside.
"I just have to keep being positive in games and the goal will definitely come."
Bhasera has made 78 appearances for Argyle over the past two-and-a-half years and grabbed three goals.
The last time he scored was on March 3 earlier this year, in a 2-1 away win against AFC Wimbledon.
Bhasera headed home only 12 seconds after the kick-off for the second-fastest goal in club history.
Wimbledon are the visitors to Home Park for a League Two fixture tomorrow, and Bhasera is hoping history will repeat itself and he can get on the scoresheet.
"Wimbledon away was my last goal," he said. "It's something I will always remember and I would be very happy to score against them again."
Bhasera has been the pick of Argyle's players this season and the Zimbabwe international admitted he was feeling on top of his game.
He started the first four matches at left-back, but moved to the left of midfield for the second half of the 2-1 defeat at Oxford United on August 25.
Bhasera has retained that role since then, apart from a couple of exceptions, with Robbie Williams taking over at left-back.
International duty with Zimbabwe meant Bhasera was absent when Argyle drew 0-0 at Torquay United on September 8.
Two weeks later, he was ruled out of the 3-2 away win against Morecambe because of a groin injury, but Bhasera returned to action against Southend the following Saturday.
Bhasera said: "I'm feeling fit and in football that's the most important thing before everything else.
"I'm happy with my fitness and also with my performances. I just need to keep going and work very hard."
Bhasera admitted left-back was his 'natural position' but added: "I don't have a problem with playing where the gaffer (Carl Fletcher) wants to put me.
"I'm contracted to the club and I just have to do the job asked of me. At the moment, he wants me to play in midfield, so I'm happy to do that."
Bhasera and Williams have developed a good understanding on that side of the pitch for the Pilgrims.
He said: "I have played at left-back and he has been in midfield so, in terms of covering each other, it is working very well."
