Highlands Park new hitman, Tendai Ndoro, doesn't want to put himself under pressure on his new spell with the newcomers. 

Ndoro signed with the Lions of North in the middle of the season after his controversial spell with the relegated, Ajax Cape Town. 

He made his debut for Highlands Park on Friday night against Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg. 

Speaking with the media after the game, Ndoro, didn't want to promise much as he preferred to take it slow. 

"No, I still have to get the (my maiden) goal. The important think is that it is all about Highlands Park. It is not about Tendai. We will fight and stay there on top. We've got different type of players. We know what we need to do for the club to win on the day. It good that we are getting results. We don't listen to what people says. As long as we are moving forward,  that's the most important thing, " Ndoro said. 

Obviously he is expected to bang in goals week in and week out as he comes with pedigree. 

Ndoro ducked the question about the importance of avoiding relegation having suffered one with Ajax last season. 

"This is Highlands Park. Let us forget about Ajax," he added. 

Assistant coach at the Lions of North, Allan Freese, came to his rescue. 

"We not thinking about that here at Highlands Park," Freese answered on Ndoro's behalf after sharing the spoils with Maritzburg United. 

The Zimbambean international has been out of the picture for quite some time and was happy to be on the field of play once again. 

"It is a good feeling to be back on competitive football once again. On a sad note, we could have won the game. We could have moved a step ahead but unfortunately it didn't happen. I'm happy about the environment at the club. There's much love. Each and every has the freedom from the technical team. It is a good thing in football which what I appreciate. They love one another. We that we can go (far) as the team," Ndoro explained.
