Dzvukamanja silencing his doubters at Pirates; scores another crucial goal
Undoubtedly, former Bidvest Wits and Ngezi Platinum Stars forward Terrence Dzvukamanja is a man on a mission.
This comes after the 28-year-old forward was heavily criticised by Orlando Pirates supporters three weeks ago but is now continuing to silence his doubters.
He scored a superb second half diving header which helped Pirates to collect maximum points against Maritzburg United at Orlando Stadium on Saturday.
Monnapule Saleng opened the scoring for the Buccaneers in the first half while Dzvukamanja doubled the lead in the second half with a bullet header off a well taken left footed Saleng free kick.
Tumeli Njoti scored the consolation goal for Maritzburg in the dying stages of the DStv Premiership encounter.
Dzvukamanja has once been booed by Orlando Pirates faithfuls who demanded that he must be sold by the club after they deemed him as excess baggage.
Albeit, his performance of late could see the Pirates fans who had appeared to be his doubters regretting their actions.
At one stage this season, Dzvukamanja was transfer listed by the club which later considered keeping the forward.
Meanwhile, it was Dzvukamanja’s second goal of the campaign after six appearances so far this season.
The Zimbabwean international who is in form scored his first goal of the season when Pirates beat Golden Arrows 3-1 on 14 January, scoring the second goal.
He was introduced as a substitute but was booed by Pirates fans who were against the coach’s decision to introduce him as a late second half substitute to replace Deon Hotto when the scoreline was still reading 1-1.
