Despite not seeing action for the Buccaneers in over seven months, the Super Eagles player quickly returned to help his team maintain their title at Moses Stadium.

In the 34th minute of the match, Ndah replaced an injured Nkosinathi Sibisi, impressing Pirates’ coach, Jose Riveiro, who later praised the Nigerian’s performance.

The 25-year-old defender had a challenging start to the season, having missed a significant portion of the last season due to a persistent knee issue. His return to the field in the 34th minute was a significant moment.
