Orlando Pirates striker Gabadinho Mhango is confident he will be able to maintain the quality of his performances when he eventually steps back onto the pitch.

With the Absa Premiership on pause due to the coronavirus lockdown, it seems inevitable that players will lose their competitive edge over time.

Mhango, who scored three goals in his last three league games, remains optimistic that he will be able to maintain his form despite the long break.

"It has been a long time that we have [not had] game time," Mhango told Far Post.

"But for me actually it is something I will never lose my mind because it is only football that keeps me busy all the time.

"So, even if I don't have time to play football on the field of play, when I get back to the pitch the performance will be the same because I have a target to fight [for]."

Mhango currently leads the league's goalscoring charts with 14 to his name this campaign.
