thumbnail Hello,

Bournemouth's assistant coach Jason Tindall is confident that Tokelo Rantie will return to his club in good form after scoring for Bafana Bafana on Friday

AFC Bournemouth striker Tokelo Rantie scored South Africa's opening goal during an international friendly against Morocco on Friday night, a goal which assistant coach Jason Tindall believes will spark the striker into action at his new club.

Rantie has yet to find the back of the net for the Cherries during his first five starts for the club, but should take confidence from helping his national side secure a draw in Morocco.

The club's record signing has been in impressive form in the Championship, and Tindall feels that goals will come for the striker as he returns to duty in England this weekend.

“We all know goals breed confidence for strikers. It was great for Tokelo to go away with South Africa and get a goal. What a great goal it was as well and it typified him. He showed a great turn of speed to outpace the backline and it was a really good finish," Tindall told the Bournemouth Daily Echo.

“Hopefully, that will give him a lift and confidence. He is yet to get off the mark for us but we are sure his first goal isn’t too far away.

“He has been a little unfortunate in two games because he has ended up playing up front on his own for long periods due to fact we had 10 men and that hasn’t helped him.

“But in the games he has played, he has been excellent and has contributed to some excellent performances.”

Rantie should be in action for Bournemouth when they travel to Nottingham Forest in an away game this weekend.
