Mabasa facing strange challenge at new club


Tshegofatso Mabasa’s move from Orlando Pirates to Sekhukhune United has been greeted with the challenging reality of providing answers to what was a strange situation at Babina Noko.

Mabasa has completed his move to Sekhukhune after battling his way through the past season at Pirates.

The 25-year-old scored thrice in 22 games last term and is out to revive his career in his latest move.

He has arrived at Sekhukhune faced with complementing the efforts of Nigerian forward Chibuike Ohizu who scored eight league goals.

Ohizu was the only man who scored more than two goals for the goal-shy Sekhukhune who had the worst attack in the league last season with a mere 21 goals.

Besides the eight league goals scored by Ohizu, Justin Shonga and Yusuf Maart had two each.

Shonga was released while Maart moved on to Kaizer Chiefs.

The rest of the cast at Sekhukhune had a goal each in Tshediso Patjie, Prince Nxumalo, Edwin Gyimah, Pogiso Mahlangu, Vusi Mncube, Roderick Kabwe, Seth Parusnath, Willard Katsande and Nyiko Mobbie.

This means Mabasa will be looking to supplement what Ohizu has done in attack and be an alternative source of goals.

Mabasa is a traditional number nine who has shown glimpses of being a source of goals but is yet to deliver consistently.

He never got into double figures through all three years he spent at Pirates.
