Cape Town - Orlando Pirates dribbling wizard Thabo Rakhale believes he is yet to reach his peak as there are areas in his game that need improvement.

After making his breakthrough last season, Rakhale has dazzled fans with his fancy footwork and skill on the ball.

Despite his rise to fame, the 25-year-old is constantly looking to improve his game and refuses to rest on his laurels.

"Coach Eric Tinkler only talks to me about my responsibilities, which include going at defenders and creating chances for my team-mates," Rakhale told KickOff.

"So far I'm happy with my contributions and Tinkler's contributions to my development is helping. I need to improve on taking shots and creating more chances - I believe I can score goals too.

"I get forward a lot and when I reach the final third, sometimes I make the wrong decisions. That is what is killing me and that needs to improve."

The Buccaneers face the University of Pretoria in the first round of the Telkom Knockout at the Orlando Stadium on Friday, October 16.

Kick-off is at 20:00.
