Ngwenya aiming to lift two goal scoring awards


The Pietermaritzburg born player is currently sitting on nine goals in the league, four behind leader James Chamanga of Moroka Swallows, who has netted 13 times.

In the Nedbank Cup competition, Ngwenya is leading the scorers’ chart with five goals that he earned in the 14-0 demolition of SAB League side Young Ones in KwaMashu on Sunday.

_quote“I know I face tough competition from my peers but I believe I can lift these awards. What makes me confident is the support I get from my teammates, from fans and coaches, although at the moment I do not want to put myself under pressure.”

Regarding the upcoming Cup match against First Division side, Vasco da Gama, Ngwenya says: “It’s going to be tough playing away from home. As you are aware, Cape Town conditions can be tricky but I think experience will help us overcome them.”

On the league match against Kaizer Chiefs on Friday, Ngwenya was also optimistic.

“It was good that Benni (Siyabonga Mkhwanazi) and I managed to score so many goals in our last game and we are still in a scoring mood.

“I watched Chiefs play Ajax; they seem to be back on track but I believe we will milk points off them as we need to consolidate our position on the log.”
