Cape Town - Orlando Pirates striker Tendai Ndoro has revealed the moment at which his career at the club started to blossom.

Prior to his prolific form in front of goal for Pirates, Ndoro had spent long periods on the bench and at some point his future at Mayfair was called into question.

In 2015/16 he made 11 league appearances, as the responsibility of playing upfront was shared largely between Kermit Erasmus, Thamsanqa Gabuza and Lehlohonolo Majoro.

However, Erasmus' departure to Rennes in January saw more chances open up for the Zimbabwe international to feature more regularly.

Ndoro was able to capitalise on the opportunity as he ended last season with 10 goals in all competitions.

The 28-year-old has opened up about the moment at which his career with the Happy People turned around for the better.

"In the first-half of last season I didn't play regularly. Then after I scored against Black Aces (now Cape Town City), I told myself I can do it and score more goals," he told the club's official magazine.

"It started in the match against Kaizer Chiefs (in March when he scored a brace). That was definitely the turning point."
