Mandaza's Goal-Scoring Form Explained

After a goal-less first half of the season for Maritzburg United, Zimbabwean hitman, Terrence Mandaza appeared to be low on confidence. He had played close to 15 matches until that point without troubling the scorers.

However, it seems the player could be enjoying something of a mini-revival for the Team of Choice in recent times. The 29-year-old has bagged a goal in back-to-back games for United, and even got the decisive strike in the club's recent historic win over SuperSport United. 

Until the 3-1 win over Matsatsantsa, Maritburg had never beaten SuperSport during the Premier League era. In addition, it appears Mandaza's return to form comes at a welcome time for the Pietermaritzburg-based outfit. 

United seem to be clear of trouble in terms of the relegation battle, and a top eight finish now could be in the realms of real possibility. The Steve Komphela-coached team play the likes of Polokwane City, Ajax Cape Town and Golden Arrows in some of their remaining matches. This could give Mandaza an opportunity to score some more goals.

Nevertheless, Maritzburg's team manager, Quintin Jettoo, has partly explained why the striker is showing an improved touch in the 18-area. He told the Siya crew, "I think Terrence has put in a lot of effort himself.  He's worked hard with the technical team. They've worked with him as well as all the players. They have worked on individual things with him. But, I think the effort has really come from him - he's really wanted it. Goals are just reward for the work he's put in, you know."
