Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter promises Kaizer Chiefs fans a deadly striker at Naturena

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter feels it would be unfair to announce any interest in signing a striker when the January transfer window opens.

Chiefs are thin upfront at the moment with out-and-out strikers, having to rely mostly on Serbian forward Samir Nurkovic, who is not in good form at the moment and is yet to rattle the back of the net this season. 

Leonardo Castro is unavailable at the moment, while Lebogang Manyama and Khama Billiat are options for Baxter upfront. Veteran Bernard Parker is an option in the role upfront, having already found the back of the net this season in the MTN8 against Mamelodi Sundowns in August. 

"I don't think the ones who have played, have played badly. We've created lots of chances. I think against Baroka we must have created more chances in a PSL game than any team I've ever had. For the Sundowns, we had 10 strikes and they had two.

Am concerned with his selections more... Striking department or not, just variate the attack. If Billiat n dolly do their combo, they should include crossing the ball and Nurkovic will start delivering.

Hahaha people were happy when GH was shown the door and they became more happier when Baxter was re-signed as the new. Look now Im hurt but as well but you people were happy about his appointment to the Team now we are stucked with this stubborn old man i don't know for how long.

Except for NURKOVIC and CASTRO who else do we have as a true no9 nothing. If anything were to happen to NURKOVIC Chiefs will be badly exposed as they will be forced to play people out of positions to cover the striking department.
