Zimbabwe International and Orlando Pirates striker Tendai Ndoro says he isn’t worried about his lack of goals for Pirates – as there isn’t as much reliance on him to find the target this season.

Ndoro netted last goal in his last Premiership encounter from the penalty spot in 3-2 loss to Free State Stars, albeit, disrupted by a dip in form where he last scored in December last year.

“Well, it’s true that I have not been finding the back of the net for a while, but I’m not concerned by that because I have been creating (scoring opportunities) for my team-mates to score in recent games,” Ndoro told Vodacom Soccer.

“Yes I’m a current league’s top scorer and it’s every striker’s wish to finish the season as a top goalscorer. But that doesn’t mean one has to be selfish and go for personal glory by not creating for fellow team-mates to score.

“My focus is currently on helping the team fight for maximum points in the remaining league games and also doing well in the Nedbank Cup, rather than bothering myself on chasing for Golden Boot.”

Ndoro leads the scoring charts in the ABSA Premiership but by just one goal ahead of in form Lebogang Manyama of Capetown City who has 11 goals.

The striker also expressed confidence that he will regain his scoring touch in games to come.

“I can feel now that I’m gradually regaining my scoring form, and goals will come without putting myself under unnecessary pressure.” He added.
