Flames midfielder Robert Ng’ambi keeps the goals flowing in the South African Premier Soccer League (PSL).
Last Saturday, Ng’ambi scored his fourth PSL goal for his club Platinum Stars against Maritzburg United which ended in a one-all draw.
It was also his second successive league goal after scoring the previous weekend against Polokwane City in a 3-0 triumph.
He is now eight goals behind the leading scorer—Mpumalanga Black Aces’ Collins Mbesuma.
According to kickoff.com, Ng’ambi had put Dikwena on course for three points, but the Team of Choice fought back to claim a share of the spoils through Evans Rusike.
“It felt good to score back-to-back, it increases my level of confidence,” said Ng’ambi.
However, Ng’ambi’s compatriot Robin Ngalande did not get a run for Platinum who are still fifth on the standings with 31 points from 18 games.
Meanwhile, Frank ‘Gabadinho’ Mhango made an impressive debut for Lomontiville Golden Arrows in a 2-1 win over Esau Kanyenda’s Polokwane City.
Gabadinho, who is on loan from Bidvest Wits, was a constant threat to Polokwane’s defence but missed two good chances.
“I had been out for sometime, but all the same I was happy with my performance,” he said in an interview from South Africa yesterday.
Arrows coach Clinton Larsen justified his move to start their new signing, saying: “Mhango hasn’t played for over a month, so we want to build his match fitness up and we thought there’s no better way than starting him to build it up.”
Following the win, Arrows are now seventh with 24 points from 18 games.
Kanyenda did not feature for Polokwane who are 13th in the 16-team league with 21 points from 19 games.
Micium Mhone also did not feature as his side Jomo Cosmos edged Free State Stars 1-0. Despite the win, Cosmos are still stuck in the relegation zone on position 14 with 17 points from 19 games.
