Where Downs have struggled


Move over Lungisani Ndlela, here comes Brian Aldave the newest striker on the block. A good goal against BidVest Wits on the weekend signalled the start of good things to come from the big Uruguayan, but others before him have not done the business.

Kick Off takes a closer look at why the likes of Elias Ngwepe, Soga Sambo, Reagan Noble and Bennet Mnguni could not find their feet under former coach Gordon Igesund.

While Brent Carelse has added value since his move from Ajax Cape Town, supporters are still waiting for Chilean international Jorge Acuna to make his mark.

Can new signings Chris Makhoba, Luvhengo Mungomeni, Fanyana Dhladhla and Phelelani Ntshangase turn the trend around, or are they likely to struggle just as many have before them?
