Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Eric Tinkler believes that Evans Rusike will get the goals to help put the Pretoria team back on track.
Matsatsantsa suffered a major dip in form after losing to TP Mazembe in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup final and have slipped down towards the relegation zone in the last couple of months.
Before Saturday's 4-2 win over Bloemfontein Celtic, SuperSport, who sold their top striker Jeremy Brockie to Mamelodi Sundowns in January, had won only one of 13 league games.
Last weekend's win over Celtic, which saw goals from both Rusike and the club's other new forward signing, Mogakolodi Ngele, has lifted the club to 11th, three points above the drop zone.
Tinkler is confident that Zimbabwean international Rusike, signed last week from Maritzburg United, is the man to turn SuperSport's season around.
"I think he can (solve the scoring problem), he has the ability and he has shown that he is a goal scorer and I think if we can get back to our ways, the brand of football that we play," Tinkler told The Citizen.
"I think he will score not just a few but many, I’ve said this from day one that players that we bring into the club need to bring value, and I think they will add a lot of value," Tinkler said.
However, Ngele and Rusike were forced off on Saturday with injuries, and Tinkler admitted it's still a bit early to talk of a revival.
"One game is not enough, we need to continue and get and another win. Once we do that, then yes, I will say yes the monkey is off our back," he explained.
“We saw Ngele and Rusike having to come off, so that monkey is still hanging around. Hopefully (their injuries) are not too serious, we will only know in the next 48 hours as to how both those potential injuries are."
