Ramokgadi: I prefer Ndoro over Gabuza

Tendai Ndoro (TEAMtalk)

Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates striker Bruce Ramokgadi backs Zimbabwean forward Tendai Ndoro to lead the Buccaneers attack instead of Thamsanqa Gabuza.

The former Mpumalanga Black Aces forward has scored five goals for the Sea Robbers in their last three Premiership games, including a brace in the derby against Kaizer Chiefs.

While admitting that Gabuza is similarly capable, Ramokgadi believes that Ndoro has shown more composure, which will benefit the team going forward as they look to finish the season in a respectable position.

"Both of them are not bad strikers at all," Ramokgadi told Goal website. "They are good strikers and good players overall but I would prefer Tendai Ndoro over Thamsanqa Gabuza.

"I think he is more composed than Gabuza, especially in front of goal. I think it is a good thing that Ndoro is now the man leading our attack to get the goals for us than Gabuza.

"It depends on the type of strikers they have and play on the day. You can play three strikers but now it depends if they can play together in the team. The same goes if you go with two strikers.

"It will depend if they can play together as strikers, then with one striker it depends if the other players can feed off the top striker."
