Impressive Warriors forward Terrence Dzvukamanja scores again for Pirates

Zimbabwean international forward Terrence Dzvukamanja has continued to prove his worth at Orlando Pirates a month after the club once considered releasing him before making a u-turn.

This comes after the lanky attacker was on the score sheet when the Soweto giants thumped Swallows 4-1 at Dobsonville Stadium on Friday.

Dzvukamanja made it 2-0 in the 47th minute after Orlando Pirates’ man-of-the-moment Monnapule Saleng who scored a hat-trick in the match had broken the deadlock in the 7th minute.

With the goal, the former Bidvest Wits and Ngezi Platinum Stars forward added to his season’s tally of three goals.

According to goal.com’s player ratings, the 28-year-old scored 7.5 out of 10 becoming the second on the list after Saleng notched 10 of 10.

“The Zimbabwean forward has turned around his season and scored his third goal of the campaign when he got on the end of a Lorch pass to make it 2-0 two minutes after the break.

“His link-up play was impressive and also dropped deep on occasions to provide space for Lorch and Saleng,” goal.com wrote on the website.

Following Dzvukamanja’s scintillating form, former Orlando Pirates gaffer Scott Chickelday told Soccer Laduma: “I loved [Terrence] Dzvukamanja, I think he is an amazing player.

“He’s probably one of the best headers of the ball in that league when you see him in training when he heads the ball, he’s phenomenal.”

He added: “I don’t think I’ve seen him miss a header and his last two goals for Pirates have both been headers and he works tirelessly hard.

“When I first got out there, he was getting a little bit of bad press and I couldn’t understand it because he wasn’t the player I was seeing in training.”
