Black Leopards goalkeeper King Ndlovu ready for debut against Orlando Pirates

Black Leopards' new goalkeeper King Ndlovu feels more than ready to make his PSL debut against Orlando Pirates tonight.
Ndlovu, who signed for the Limpopo side from National First Division outfit Jomo Cosmos last week, says playing friendlies with the Buccaneers while still at Ezenkosi has served as good preparation for the challenge ahead.
Leopards head coach Joel Masutha previously indicated Ndlovu would make his bow against Bucs at Peter Mokaba Stadium (19h30), but was less committal when asked again earlier today.
"I'm in camp now. I'm a PSL player now (laughs)," Ndlovu tells KickOff.com.
"As for me I'm ready, ever ready. I have played against them in friendlies, so it's not much difference now. I think playing friendlies against them has prepared me for this one, as well as the NFD experience ... This will be my first PSL game."
Ndlovu says he has received advice from Cosmos keeper trainer Avril Phali since he made the big move.
"He told me I must do good, just play my game."
Ndlovu says he won't be disappointed if he doesn't get an opportunity against the Soweto giants. Masutha has used Rotshidzwa Muleka twice and Christophe Aifimi once in goal so far this campaign.
"It's still early days now, my time will come. I'm very patient so I'm not in a rush for anything. If I play today, obvious I will give 100 percent."
