Cape Town - University of Pretoria striker Getaneh Kebede is happy with his move to South Africa's capital so far and wants to score at least 10 goals this season for AmaTuks.

The Ethiopian forward moved to Pretoria from Bidvest Wits in a bid to get more first-team football and is delighted by the opportunities he has already been given this season.

Kebede has made four starts in the Premiership for Tuks this season and, while he is yet to score, he feels he needs to time to get his confidence back after not being given much opportunity by Wits.

"I am happy with the new club and the whole environment. I came here for game-time and I am getting that now," he told KickOff.

"As you know very well as a player you need game time to improve. Right now I am working hard towards keeping my place in the team and determined to do better than I have done before since I came here.

"I am hoping to score up to about 10 goals this season," he concluded.

Tuks, like Kebede, have had a slow start to the season and find themselves in 14th place in the Premiership just one point above Jomo Cosmos and the relegation places after winning only one of their opening six league games.
