Cape Town - Orlando Pirates striker Tendai Ndoro says the competition for a starting place up front is pushing him to play to the best of his ability.
The Zimbabwean has all the makings of a good train surfer, from his breath-taking speed to powerful acceleration and good timing.
Those skills have seen the Orlando Pirates forward score 10 goals in the club's last 10 matches where he had to show train-surfing skills by jumping into the Sea Robbers ship in motion and quickly settle in.
He will be looking to continue doing that on Monday when Pirates visit Platinum Stars in Phokeng in the Absa Premiership.
"You can't struggle for goals when you're playing with such talent that we have at Pirates, especially now that we know that we have to win almost every match we're involved in so that we can finish this season on a high note," Ndoro told Vodacom Soccer.
"I arrived here when the team had gelled. The train was moving and I had to hop onto it while it was still in motion. It's a hard thing to do.
"They were doing well in the CAF Confederation. I waited for my chance and took it well. I am making the most of it because I know how it was like waiting.
"My work rate has improved because I am competing with Thamsanqa Gabuza, who is a regular in the national team and Lehlohonolo Majoro, who is a good striker.
"They keep me on my toes. So if I get this opportunity, I must make the most of it because they're waiting in the wings and they want to play. But the great thing is that we work together and we support each other which pushes us to excel."
