Owen Da Gama Hoping New Striker Mthobisi Mngomezulu Will Score More! The new man scored the first goal for his club against Abafana Bes’thende.
The Rocket fell behind twice in the game. First to Michael Gumede, before Mxolisi Macuphu equalised in stunning fashion.
Arrows took the lead once more in the second half through Velemseni Ndwandwe. However, the equaliser came in the dying embers of the game through Mngomezulu’s strike.
“Mthobisi played 15 minutes and he scored.” The elated Da Gama expressed to the attending media.
“We could see that coming. He is a hard worker.
“I’m very happy for him. He will help us get more goals.
“You’ve got to understand that this is a work in progress,” Coach Da Gama added.
“The good thing about Mthobisi is that he turns in the box. We know that.
“The instruction that we gave to the players was to get the ball in his feet and he would turn them and get the shot at goal. He has scored a couple of goals like that at training.
“There was no specific instruction, but we wanted him to get to the box and do what he does best which is to turn. I’m happy for him,”
