Cape Town - Polokwane City striker Puleng Tlolane believes his form this season shows that all he needs to impress in the Premiership is sufficient time on the field.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a stellar turnaround at Rise and Shine, having gone from a fringe player in the 2013/14 campaign to a regular starter in the current season. It has seen the forward topple the scoring sheets where he is the joint-top scorer with Free State Stars’ Moeketsi Sekola (8 goals).

And, Tlolane is relishing his chance to showcase his talents, and is thankful for the faith shown in him by the Polokwane club.

"Last season I didn't get that much game-time,” he told KickOff.

“The first few matches I didn't start, but this season I've started almost every match and played for longer, so that has helped me gain confidence and enabled me to become the current top scorer.

"I also do a lot of extra training with one of the goalkeepers and work mostly on finishing."
