Cape Town - Orlando Pirates striker Tendai Ndoro has credited his fellow strikers for his goal-scoring form after his brace secured a 2-0 Nedbank Cup Last-32 win over Kaizer Chiefs.

Ndoro scored in the 77th and 84th minute against Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup Last-32 at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

"It is not all about me, but all about my teammates and the club. We needed to go to the next stage, that's what we came here for," Ndoro told The Herald.

"Orlando Pirate strikers anyone can play there, if Majoro (Lehlohonolo) or Gabuza (Thamsanqa) is playing we have to support them. It is not a matter of me crying to play or what.

"Football is a team sport. The one who is playing we have to support him score and if he doesn't, he can always try next game.

"As for the games that I didn't start, I didn't even complain. I am in the team, if the team wins it's an Orlando Pirates victory.

Pirates coach Eric Tinkler said Ndoro has found his feet in the team because his effort during training has improved drastically.

"Tendai's work-rate needed to increase. We're a team in which everybody needs to work and we can see he is doing that now," Tinkler said.

"But the most important is his work-rate, which we are now seeing from him and the way he expresses himself, which is also very important."
