Bacela netted Bucs’ first goal, in the team’s 2-0 win over the Nedbank Ke Yona team at Orlando Stadium.

“It is all about being in the box,” said Bacela on Bucs' website.

“I missed a few chances which I could have easily converted I admit, but it all comes down to match fitness.”

“I have not played official matches this season and that showed a bit in the game,” admits the 31-year-old.

Although his drought of scoring goals has come to an end the former Bloemfontein Celtic striker that he is on course to finding his form and grab every opportunity given to him by Vladimir Vermezovic.

“Scoring has of course given me more motivation - it was really nice to score because the technical team expected me to score because I was chosen to start the match.”

“I will have to keep working and be in top shape. I might get a chance to play, so I must keep doing what I was hired for. I am glad that I scored that goal. It’s always good for us as strikers.”
