Cape Town - Orlando Pirates forward Lehlohonolo Majoro maintains that the interests of the team far outweigh any individual aspirations that he might have this season.

After producing a quiet season in 2013/14, Majoro has been far more prolific this term, having breached opposition defences six times in the 15 Premiership matches that he has competed in.

Majoro is just two goals behind Moeketsi Sekola and Puleng Tlolane, who are the leading scorers this season, and the reality is that they can still be caught. However, that is not a priority for the Pirates marksman at this juncture.

"I’m here as a Pirates player and everything I do is for Pirates. I don’t set personal targets in terms of goals I want to score because that will disturb the way I play for the team," said Majoro.

"When you do that you end up playing for yourself rather than the team.

“When you are in possession and your teammate is in a better position then you remember your own targets and you end up trying to score even in awkward situations.

"I don’t want to do that, we are a team and Pirates comes first," he added.
