Cape Town - New Ajax Cape Town striker Tendai Ndoro says he is ready to show the rest of South Africa's top-flight league how to score goals.

With the lack of top goalscorers in the Premiership this season - Rodney Ramagalela and Percy Tau lead the charts with nine and six goals respectively - Ndoro feels he can be the leading marksman once again.

The Zimbabwe international scored 11 goals in the first 12 games at the start of the 2016/17 season for Orlando Pirates and will need a similar impact at the Urban Warriors, who are firmly embroiled in a relegation scrap.

The January arrival from Saudi Arabian side Al-Faisaly says he's excited about his return to South Africa and to work with Ajax coach Muhsin Ertugral in order to lift the team off the foot of the table.

"It's great to be in the Mother City and playing for a big club like Ajax, who have such a proud history," Ndoro told IOL. "I just want to thank Muhsin and the club for bringing me here.

"Now I must repay the faith in me by scoring goals. I see the country's strikers battling to put the ball into the back of the net. I would like to show how it's done.

"Obviously I need support from my players for that to happen, and I'm sure they will set me up with chances to score. I really do believe we can start winning games - watch us do that in the remaining fixtures.

"No way Ajax will stay where they are, there's too much quality in the ranks, it just needs to shine through."

Ajax who sit rock bottom in the Absa Premiership standings next face Platinum Stars on Friday with both teams fighting relegation.

Kick-off is at 20:00.
