Kaizer Chiefs Top Striker's Injury A Blessing In Disguise?

Kaizer Chiefs are currently out of focus due to incidents involving Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro's injury and that makes them dangerous.

That view is supported by sources from SuperSport United goalkeeper and captain Ronven Williams, who spoke to the media earlier about this aspect of Tshwane this week and praised Amakhosi for the DStv-Premiership fixtures on Sunday.

Right now, Amakhosi must look for different alternatives to put them at risk of attack and although it has taken some time, the mix between Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly's signed tent seems to be paying off.

Chippa United cut receipts for the remainder of the weekend when Biliat doubled on Dolly, who returned serve to Zimbabwe for added intent for a clear four-zero league win.

Obviously, they understand the defenders and are betting on bigger and stronger strikers they know.

But now they're going past Khama and Keagan who move so much - the main thing about defenders is getting the music going. Take it early because we know how to play and they're given a certain tempo. But it gives us the ability to prevent submissions, otherwise, they wouldn't pose a threat. We did, and with luck, things might be desired by us.

SSU are runners-up to Mamelodi Sundowns on the table while the Chiefs can be picked to win for transport and return to the top eight and join the leaderboard.

As it stands, it seems like Kaizer Chiefs are better off without Samir Nurkovic, even Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Pollen Ndlanya believes the injuries to Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro are a blessing in disguise.

Nurkovic is expected to be out for up to eight weeks following knee surgery, while Castro has not been in the team for weeks. And Ndlanya doesn't think the boss is in crisis with the strikers as he believes there is an opportunity for attacking players like Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly to step up.

In fact, it's not just them; a player like Phathutshedzo Nange can score and he has to start. They have players who can score goals for the team and [they] have to go out now. The Chiefs shall receive Chippa United at the FNB Stadium on Saturday and it remains to be seen who will lead the attack later on.
