National First Division outfit Royal Eagles have captured the signature of former SuperSport United and Lamontville Golden Arrows winger, Andile Fikizolo.

Fikizolo was on the books of Abafana Bes'thende for the past few seasons. 

Last season he sustained a long term injury which kept him out of the picture for a while.

General Manager at Eagles confirmed that they are happy to welcome Fikizolo in to their books. 

"Yes, it is true that Fikizolo is now our player. We've signed him on a two year contract. He is the player with immense talent. We have no doubt that his addition in the team will be valuable," Dlamini said.

Eagles have succumbed to two defeats and played two stalemates. They were beaten 1-0 at Chatsworth Stadium in Durban against Stellenbosch in their opening fixture. 

Eagles then suffered another defeat at the expense of TS Sporting at Kwabokweni in Mpumalanga in their second game of the season.

Before the Fifa break, they earned a point away from in a 1-1 draw against Richards Bay FC at Umhlathuze Sports Complex in Richards Bay. 

Last weekend, Eagles squandered a 2-0 lead as they shared the spoils against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila at home.

"We are not worried. We've just played four games. In the first two matches we struggled with goals but we've found our scoring boots now. We have to ensure that we don't concede. We are playing well. We just need one win and the victories will follow," Dlamini explained.

Eagles have build the reputation of firing coaches if results are not forthcoming.

"The coach is not going anywhere. We losing games because of individual mistakes. We won't rush in to quick decisions. Last season that killed us. The new coach will need 4 to 6 weeks to settle down. Maybe he will want to make changes in the playing personal. So we can't afford to do that. We are not far away from our first three points of the season, " Dlamini said with huge anticipation.

Eagles are 14th on the log after four games with two points.
