Abafana Bes’thende were the underdogs going into the clash, having started the season in poor fashion, but caused an upset with a 2-1 win over the high-flying Dube Birds. The Rietvlei-born player started the game alongside Thanduyise Khuboni in the middle of the park and hopes for better things to come now that the team has gained momentum.
He told the Siya crew, “It feels very good, especially because it was my first start and our first win in front of our supporters. As a team we stuck to the coach’s instructions, we worked for one another and most importantly we worked our socks off."
In their next match against SuperSport United, who are still smarting from the recent 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Platinum Stars, Ngxabi said, "It’s definitely another big one against SuperSport, who are also fighting for top spot, but we want to make it two wins in a row. We need to double our efforts and work even harder to get the three points.”
