JOHANNESBURG. — Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler says Tendai Ndoro’s brace has given him something he has been craving all season. The Zimbabwean came off the bench to replace Lehlohonolo Majoro in the 64th minute against Mpumalanga Black Aces on Sunday and scored two goals as Pirates won 3-1 yesterday. Tinkler says Ndoro’s clinical finishing is something that has been missing from his side.
“It’s the pressure I need,” he told SuperSport after the match. “We’ve been extremely wasteful in front of goal and today we were a bit clinical. Ndoro had three chances and put two in the back of the net. That’s what you want. I’m just happy we got the result. It was a much-improved performance. In the first half we could have been a little bit more clinical. We knew they would allow us to exploit the space out wide, and we didn’t make the most of that.
“But I’m proud of our second-half performance. We started to play on the transition, we looked to get the ball wide, and Tendai did exceptionally well coming in and getting himself a brace. “The youngster Memela who hadn’t played in quite a while also came in and did a fantastic job. So overall a good performance from everyone.” — KickOff.
