Chiefs beat Leopards 2-1 in a replayed League match on Wednesday. Their next match is against Bidvest Wits on Monday at Mbombela Stadium.
"I am delighted to have scored my first goal of the season," 'Shabba' tells Chiefs official website. "Sometimes you wonder when the goal is going to come and I am glad it finally did.
"I always aim to score more goals in a season, but then again, for me the team's success is more important than individual goals. I am happy to create or make a contribution as long as we get maximum points."
Tshabalala tells the club's website that he dedicated the goal to his younger sister Nompumelelo, who celebrated her birthday on matchday: "She turned 14 and despite being younger has been a pillar of strength in the family.
"This week is an important one for us as it is my late mum's birthday on Friday [September 21]. My mum was a massive fan of the club."
With no MTN8 to worry about this weekend, the 27-year-old says his teammates are thoroughly focused on the match against the Clever Boys.
"With the Leopards game out of the way, we are now focusing on Bidvest Wits," he says. "They have strengthened the team and will prove tough but then again if you want to win things you should be prepared to beat anyone.
"We are going to Nelspruit with a positive attitude."
