Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates assistant coach Tebogo Moloi feels new signing Dove Wome can be the catalyst for a resurgence to form at the club, ahead of the Soweto Derby on Saturday.
Following a run of inconsistent results, the Buccaneers hired experienced Swedish manager Kjell Jonevret, having roped in Togo international forward Wome, at the half-way mark of the campaign.
Wome's arrival on a temporary switch from SuperSport United was greeted with much optimism from the Sea Robbers and he's impressed in his first few outings.
After scoring in consecutive starts against Cape Town City and Polokwane City, including the first goal of Jonevret's reign as Pirates coach. The 25-year-old has now been put into the spot-light as the main attacking threat going into the encounter with Kazier Chiefs.
"I think he's a breath of fresh air and I am quite surprised that Pirates were able to bring him in, because in the past Wome has never been a player any team could let go," Moloi told IOL.
"You will recall that SuperSport also first got him on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns before they signed him permanently. He is a quality player and a strong character who can lead the attack. He is known for scoring.
"I don't want to put pressure on him, but to have scored two goals in his previous two matches suggests he can lead the revival.
"If he gets another one against Chiefs then the fans will be confident he can help, regardless of whether Pirates win or lose on the day."
