Highlands Downplay Mvala’s Dip In Form This Season

After an influential PSL debut season that saw him being crowned Highlands Park's top goalscorer in the 2018/19 campaign, Mothobi Mvala has had a relatively quiet season by his standards, something that does not bother the club too much.

By this time last season, the 26-year-old was tearing up the club’s goalscoring charts by netting crucial goals in Highlands return to the top flight.

However, this season has been stark in comparison in terms of goals for the midfield hard man. He has struggled to replicate the form he shown over the last three seasons, although his club’s co-director and shareholder Sinky Mnisi feels it is just a matter of time before he returns to his best.

“It happens to any player (the dip in form), it’s not easy to maintain the same form for a number of years. Remember, Mothobi did well for us when we were relegated by scoring crucial goals, he was behind Shalulile on the scoring charts when we got promoted, he did well in the first season back in the PSL. That is three seasons in a row, but the boy is still young and I’m backing him to pick up the pieces and go on to do what he does best,” Mnisi said.

Last season’s finalists, Highlands currently sit in eighth position on the Absa Premiership log and will be counting on Mvala and co. to maintain their log position, or even better it - to once again compete for the coveted MTN8 trophy next season.
