Mncwango put his name on the history books when he netted all four goals in a 4-1 drubbing of Gordon Igesund’s team.

“I am very happy for myself and for the team. We needed a good win. It has boosted my confidence and that of the team,” said Mncwango on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old from Nongoma in KwaZulu-Natal said he is looking forward to being targeted by defenders following his goal feat.

“I am aware of the pressure this brings. Defenders will now be giving me extra attention, but I am ready for that. As a striker the pressure is always there for me to score, it is nothing new,” he said.

He said like every striker in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) right now, it is his wish to outscore everyone and take the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot Award at the end of the season.

“That is every striker’s dream. Even those that are yet to score this season will tell you they dream of it. But I will keep humble and continue working hard. I think that will be very key to my and the team’s progress. “
