Ng’ambi: I Should Be More Worried…
Robert Ng'ambi Demands More From Himself At Platinum Stars
Robert Ng’ambi knows that Platinum Stars need to start winning games quickly if they’re going to manage to survive the Absa Premiership drop this season.
Dikwena take on SuperSport United this evening in their 21st game of the campaign, with Roger de Sa’s side five points behind 15th-placed Ajax Cape Town at the foot of the table.
A victory this evening would close the gap, and the experienced Malawian believes that the team need to put in more effort if they’re to turn things around.
He said in a press release, “We need to turn it around now. We don’t have time anymore. The games are going. We can’t keep on complaining. We have to sort things on the field of play. We need to fight as a team. Bring back the confidence that we had. It’s up to us if we want to change things. It’s our jobs at stake.
“We have to look at ourselves as to what we have done for the team. We also have to look at what we can do to save the team. We need to put in more effort. As a senior player, I need to bring my A game so that I can help where the team is struggling. The other guys also have to come to the party. We have to look back as to what is it that we were doing right for the team that was winning cups and coming second on the log.”
But Ng’ambi isn’t looking elsewhere for blame, and says that he knows he should have been doing more on a personal level.
He added, “An individual like me as an attacking player, I have to ask how much effort have I put into my game. How many goals have I scored? How many goals have I created? In this game we talk about the collective as a team but sometimes individuals win you games. So as an attacking player I should be more worried if I am not scoring. It means there’s something that I am not doing right. That’s why I am talking about bringing my A game. I have to work harder to get goals and to create for my teammates so we get out of trouble.”
This season is currently the 31-year-old’s lowest scoring league campaign since joining Dikwena in 2011, and he will need to build on his three Absa Premiership goals if he’s going to help Stars beat the drop come May.
