Could Ndoro Reach The 20+ Goal Mark This Season?

For the past couple of seasons, the PSL has experienced a dry spell of goals and we haven't had a prolific striker achieving the 20+ goal mark in a season.

The last time we had a striker scoring 20+ goals a season was over a decade ago, when Collins Mbesuma scored 25 goals in 2004/05 season. The closest a player came to that feat was when Siyabonga Nomvethe scored 19 goals in the 2011/12 season. Since then no player has ever scored over 14 goals a season.

With the new season already upon us, the SA football fraternity is hungry to see goals galore in the elite league, and the opening games have given us some hope. The one player that grabbed everyone's attention is Orlando Pirates' Tendai Ndoro.

The Zimbabwean started his campaign like a house on fire. He continued from where he left off last season when he grabbed a hat-trick on the second day of the league opening. Ndoro was given a run late in the previous season, and banged in goals every chance he got. The masses believe he could have scored over 20 goals if he was given enough time to play. With his goalscoring prowess still very much alive, he's promising to light up the Premier Soccer League this campaign.

The good thing and most interesting about him is that he can score from anywhere around the box, even when his back is to goal. We saw that when he scored a stunner, after receiving the ball with his back to goal against Golden Arrows. He's also good with both his head and feet, something not many strikers possess. He's everything you need in a striker, and his confidence in front of goal is amazing. He's got what it takes to be a top scorer.

With that said, could the Sea Robbers' star emulate Ntofontofo this season and score over 20 goals? Could he be the man to rewrite the history books in the PSL, judging by his goalscoring prowess?
