Uthongathi striker Siyabonga Vilane not setting any goal targets for the season


Vilane netted his latest goal in the 3-0 victory over struggling neighbours Real Kings at Princess Magogo Stadium in Durban on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old, who joined Uthongathi from KZN ABC Motsepe League side Milford FC at the beginning of last term, opened his account in style with a hat-trick against Ubuntu Cape Town on match-day three.

He bagged a brace the following game against Witbank Spurs.

"I don't want to count the number of goals I want to score but I'll continue to work hard, and if the goals go in accordingly so be it," Vilane said.

"I'm getting the support from my teammates. They're the ones who are supporting me in scoring these goals.

"Next up is Royal Eagles [on Saturday] and there we will give it our best shot. That is what I take forward in each and every game."

Vilane believes in the style of play implemented by new Cane Cutters coach Johnny Ferreira, whose charges have accumulated 11 points from five games.

"What is happening right now has not changed me but has changed the team," Vilane said.

"The way we play and the way we keep the ball is encouraging, and we will work hard all the time."

Vilane made his PSL debut with AmaZulu in 2010/11. He only played 12 times for Usuthu, scoring once, before he joined African Wanderers in 2013.

He moved on to Mpumalanga Black Aces the following year but only registered one substitute appearances under Muhsin Ertugral and was released.

Vilane afterwards had a stint at Ratchaburi Mitr Phol in Thailand.
