In their first two opening matches, Amazayoni drew 1-all with Bloemfontein Celtics and lost 2-1 to Kaizer Chiefs, but Ndoro’s superb form in their opening match against Celtics could not escape the eye.

The Zimbabwean also scored his side’s goal that ensured a share of the spoils with a side that has no respect for even the so-called big teams of the league.

For the entire season, Ndoro is expected to be partnered with the robust and highly-experienced Zambian, Collins Mbesuma, in the Aces attack.

“We have played two games so far and Ndoro has shown us he has lost none of the form he displayed last season. He is a great striker whom any coach would like to have in his side,” said Barker.

“I am building my strike force around Ndoro and Mbesuma, not meaning that the other players are out of my plans, but they would have to also fight for their positions. I believe this will also encourage the duo of Ndoro and Mbesuma to continue working hard.”

Barker was confident his two top strikers would deliver this season and help take the club to a top 8 finish.

“They look sharp at both training and official games. I am confident of getting what I want out from them.”

Ndoro refused to get carried away by last season’s impressive showing, but still vowed to help his club attain a better position than last season’s seventh place finish.

“My goal is to make sure that we are once again on a top eight position at the end of the season, but not only that. We need to improve from what we did last season and end higher, or with at least a trophy. The issue is always more about the club, not me in person,”

said the striker, who plays with countrymen Energy Murambadoro, Tinashe Nengomasha and Method Mwanjali at the club.
