Baxter To Rely On This Striker As Chiefs Face Gavin Hunt's Chippa United

It's the good, the bad, and the ugly for Kaizer Chiefs as they face former Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt and his Chippa United on Saturday, October 16. Kaizer Chiefs has some good news to share as an injured striker is set to return sooner than expected, with Khama Billiat again the man to rely on in their next fixture.

Kaizer Chiefs has a striker crisis at the club with two of their strongest forward players relieved of duty due to injuries. Samir Nurkovic is out as he is still recovering from an injury which now created a shortage up front as the club does not have a natural number 9 to penetrate the oppositions defence.

Although Nurkovic is still out recuperating from his injury, Kaizer Chiefs shares good news as David Leonardo Castro who also left a gap in the attack, is said to have made his official return to South Africa and the club, after he was away in Colombia for two months, rehabilitating from a glute injury.

Castro is officially back at the club, which is good news, but will not start playing again in the near future, but he will start playing again sooner than expected. Kaizer Chiefs will be playing against their former coach Gavin Hunt's Chippa United on Saturday, and with the two forwards still out of action, Baxter will have to make use of what he has to his disposal.

Stuart Baxter has been using Khama Billiat as his favourite striker in the absence of Nurkovic and Castro. Keagan Dolly who has been playing exceptionally well for Kaizer Chiefs in the last few matches will possibly be behind Billiat in the frontline with Lebogang Manyama and maybe even Lazarus Kambole who has been the least favourite one for Baxter to use in the frontline.

Kaizer Chiefs needs a win following consecutive defeats in the Dstv Premiership, and Stuart Baxter will have to choose wisely.
