Cape Town - Eric Tinkler admits confidence plays a big factor as Lehlohonolo Majoro's struggles in front of goal continue at Cape Town City.

Majoro, who joined on a free transfer after seeking more regular game time as he left Orlando Pirates, is considered as one of the most prolific finishers in the Premiership.

However, his goal scoring form as a lone striker at the newly formed top-flight side has been dismal - with zero goals in nine games across all competitions.

The Citizens recent 2-1 win over Mamelodi Sundowns saw the 30-year-old miss a glorious chance in front of goal, but with low confidence his instinctive finishing in the area eluded him.

Tinkler understands the current predicament of the former AmaZulu man but praised the entire squad for implementing his tactical plan to perfection, in their victory over the Champions of Africa.

"The press, everybody is going to be on his case because he is a goal scorer and that's what we brought him here for. I still feel he will score goals," he told the SowetanLIVE.

"He needs to rebuild his confidence and the only way is if we as a team support him. I told him to lift his head."

He added: "Leading up to the game I had firm belief that we could get three points. I explained to the players that there was no better opportunity to be playing against Sundowns than now, after their adventure in Africa.

"It's not easy to come here and beat Sundowns, so credit to the boys."

City will welcome Bloemfontein Celtic to Cape Town City on Wednesday for an Absa Premiership clash.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
