Cape Town - Orlando Pirates midfielder Mpho Makola admits that he could have made a more meaningful contribution to his club's cause this season, adding that he intends to be more prolific in front of goal.

Makola has competed in 21 Premiership matches for Pirates this term and has breached opposition defences three times during that period. However, he still wants to do more.

"It is obviously a great feeling to be scoring goals, also it's not enough, but it is a step in the right direction," Makola told goal.com.

"I've always said that as an attacking midfielder, I want to score a lot of goals and I've been working extremely hard on it."

Pirates still have a considerable amount to play for in the Premiership and in CAF competition and any success that the club does have will depend heavily on the exploits of the club's attacking players. Makola at least feels that he might be heading in the right direction.

"I'm just happy to have gotten my name on the score-sheet in the last two games and hopefully I can continue with it until the end of the season, in both the league and CAF," added Makola.
