Da Gama hopes Ndoro will score lots of goals

Coach ex­cited to field new player

Sowetan - - Dipapadi - By Bon­gani Ma­gasela

Fi­nally the mo­ment has ar­rived for Tendai Ndoro to of­fi­cially don the jersey of High­lands Park tonight.

Whether he is in the start­ing line-up when the Li­ons of the North take on Mar­itzburg United in a Pre­mier­ship League match at Harry Gwala Sta­dium this evening or he comes on as a sub­sti­tute, ex­pec­ta­tions are that he should de­liver.

Mid­fielder Mthobi Mvala has been the saviour, scor­ing most of the goals for the club, who are 10th on the PSL log with two wins and five draws in nine matches.

“I fore­see Tendai scor­ing lots of goals be­cause he is very dan­ger­ous in the box,” said coach Owen da Gama of the player he could not field im­me­di­ately af­ter sign­ing up with the club be­cause he had to serve a two-match ban.

Ndoro – who was at the cen­tre of a reg­is­tra­tion storm last sea­son at rel­e­gated Ajax Cape Town – has now served his time and is ready to go.

“He is def­i­nitely part of the team,” con­firmed Da Gama.

“Whether he is in the start­ing line-up or not that is not im­por­tant. The fact is that he is avail­able for se­lec­tion. We are very ex­cited to have him as part of the team and we are look­ing for­ward to have him on the field.”

Mar­itzburg go into tonight’s match boast­ing a win against High­lands. The Team of Choice elim­i­nated the Tem­bisa side in the first round of the Telkom Knock­out re­cently, win­ning 2-1, also at Harry Gwala.

Da Gama said: “Mar­itzburg have a qual­ity team and we learnt a lot play­ing them. But we were un­for­tu­nate to lose.

That is water un­der the bridge; we’re look­ing for a good match. We’re in­jury-free and we’re find­ing our feet.”
