The Premiership rookies have the trio of Method Mwanjali, Energy Murambadoro and Tendai Ndoro, who officials said were key to the side’s quest to finish among the top eight sides in the local league.
January window transfer signing Ndoro has had the biggest impact and is one of the league’s in-form strikers. He notched a brace recently as Aces ran riot against strugglers Moroka Swallows in a match the Mpumalanga-based side won 5-2, much to the excitement of management.
“Ndoro has been worth the wait,” said Aces spokesman, Gordon Masondo about the former Chicken Inn player, who signed in August but had his move to the South African club delayed by some technicalities. “We were always upbeat we had signed a quality striker and that is beginning to show in the goals he has scored since joining us. He will play an influential role in our ambitions of a top eight finish.”
He hinted at the possibility of Aces, who lie ninth in the 16-team log, strengthening relations with Chicken Inn following Ndoro’s immediate impact. Masondo also praised defender Mwanjali and returning goalkeeper Energy Murambadoro. “Mwanjali has been inspirational as well. He was also among the goal scorers recently when we beat Golden Arrows. He has captained the side as well. Energy, despite not having played an official match has also been a positive influence with his experience. His presence has brought the best out of first choice keeper, Jackson Mabokgwane. Overall, we are grateful to the services the Zimbabwean players have rendered to this side. They are central to our ambitions,” he said.Post published in: Football
