The former Chicken Inn striker found the net as early as the second minute to put AmaZayoni in the lead and scored the winner 12 minutes before the final whistle Mpumalanga rose to sixth place on the log standings.

According to reports from South Africa, the first goal was a clinical finish from the Zimbabwean lanky forward before Aces made sure of bagging maximum points with a Ndoro tap-in from a counter-attack.

Ndoro had another effort saved by the Ajax goalkeeper just before the hour mark.

Friday night’s game featured three Zimbabweans with former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Method Mwanjali — now at Mpumalanga — and another Warriors striker Simba Sithole coming in as a substitute in the 55th minute for Ajax Cape Town.

Sithole, who joined the Urban Warriors from How Mine was unfortunate to see his header slide off the cross bar 15 minutes before full time.

Two weeks ago, the Warriors forward notched another brace when Mpumalanga Black Aces routed Moroka Swallows 5-2 at KaNyamazane Stadium.

He has scored five goals since he joined AmaZayoni, getting the first when his side beat Maritzburg United 2-1 at Mbombela Stadium last month.

Ndoro was top goalscorer in the 2013 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League with 18 goals for Chicken Inn and was named among the 11 soccer star of the year finalists.

His signed a one-year contract with Mpumalanga Black Aces and is reportedly targeted by Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates.
