Zim strikers shine in SA's PSL

[Posted 01 Apr 2013]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Terrence Mandaza and Cuthbert Malajila

This past weekend saw Zimbabwean strikers based in South Africa make rich pickings in their respective clubs' victories.

Maritzburg United benefited the most from the rich vein of form of Cuthbert Malajila and Terrence Mandaza who combined in scoring a goal apiece in the late 2-0 win over Wilfred Mugeyi's unlucky Chippa United.

Mandaza, who has of late picked up the same goal scoring form which made him a household name at Township Rollers in Botswana a few seasons ago, came off the bench to score the opening goal in the 76th minute, after being set up by Malajila.

Mandaza then turned provider a minute later as he set up Malajila's 77th minute cool strike rich in quality.

Malajila's strike, coming as it did after a somewhat long dry spell for the gifted striker, was still good enough to take him to second position on the goal scorer's charts, level with Moroka Swallows' Katlego Mashego on nine goals and one behind Kaizer Chiefs' Bernard Parker who sits on 10 goals.

Mandaza has now scored five goals in the ABSA premiership, and the striker has such potential to hit more than 20 goals in the PSL.

The strike rate of strikers in South Africa's ABSA premiership is seriously worrying, considering that there are not more than eight league matches remaining in the 2012/2013 season.

Elsewhere, Kingston Nkhatha grabbed the opening goal in Chiefs' shrewd display of tactical play, when the Zimbabwean striker scored against the run of play at Free State Rugby Stadium against Bloemfontein Celtics as the home team pressed the log leaders for much of the match. Chiefs went on to hit the hosts with counter attacking football, scoring two more goals to emerge 3-0 victors.

Celtics coach Clint Larsen aptly summed it up at the end of the match when he remarked that the scoreline was one of the most deceiving scorelines he had ever seen. He was correct as Celtics dominated the entire match, yet it was the Amakhosi who played more purposeful football.

Nkhatha's strike takes his tally of the season to seven goals, and he becomes the fourth highest goal scorer in the ABSA premiership. Chiefs has three players in the top four on scorers' charts, making theirs the sharpest strikeforce seen in the local PSL for many years. 

Another Zimbabwean, Brian Amidu came on as a second half substitute to create a goal in Black Leopards' late attempt to fight from a 0-3 deficit, to only end up as 3-2 losers away at Supersport United. Amidu had arrived late from Egypt where the Zimbabwean national soccer team narrowly losot 2-1 to a very late Mohamed Abou-trika's 88th minute penalty. 

Amidu remains on four goals and if he played regularly he could have scored more goals.
