Tendai Ndoro the current leading goal scorer in the Absa premiership has proven undisputable in front of goal.
With 11 goalsto his tally after a weekend’s double past fellow country man Tapiwa Kapini saw the Sea Robbers earning a crucial point at home in a match that ended 2-2 against Highlands Park.
Ndoro opened the scoring with just 2 minutes of play before Highlands Park’s Khuboni equalized from the penalty spot in the 45th minute just before half time. Ndoro then doubled the margin from the penalty spot in the 57th minute before the visitors added late equalizer from Mbatha.
The Zimbabwean forward has proved to be the hard working machine leading the Pirates ship this season. The striker who is full of composer, pace and skill has been inspirational to the Bucanneers’ current form and has displayed a lot of enthusiasm towards goal.
Warriors striker Tendai “Fire” Ndoro has set pace for other strikers in the ABSA premiership, having played only 7 games in the 2015/16 season. Ndoro has proved why the Pirates coach Augusto Palacios has given him the role to lead from front ahead of team mate Gebuza.
Augusto Palacios’, the Orlando Pirates coach has been experiencing ups and downs in the premier league which has left them 6th on the table 4 points behind log leaders Cape Town City who are at 24 after the later’s home draw. The Bucanneers are likely to end trophy-less after having bowed out of the Telkom Knockout Cup.
The Orlando Pirates forward, Ndoro has however been inconsistent on national level for whom he has not delivered enough goals from his recent national team call ups. The warriors gun man came in from the bench in 60th minute in a friendly match against Tanzania replacing Cuthbert Malajila and struggled to perform. Ndoro missed a glorious opportunity to add on to the warriors 3 goal tally.
