In the absence of the two natural strikers, the former Orlando Pirates striker urged Billiat and Dolly to start scoring goals.
Ndlanya, who played for Amakhosi twice, challenged Billiat and Dolly to step up their game and start scoring goals for the Soweto giants, who have lost their previous four PSL games.
"Look, I won't say it's a crisis; I believe it's a blessing in disguise that those players are hurt, since it means they don't have to rely on Castro and Nurkovic for goals," Ndlanya told Sowetan.
"Now that those superstars aren't there, players like Billiat and Dolly need to step up and start scoring goals for the squad."
Phathutshedzo Nange, a midfielder from Stellenbosch FC, joined the Chiefs in July after scoring five goals for Stellies last season.
"They're offensive players who need to start scoring more often." "With players like Billiat and Dolly, and not just them, the team cannot struggle to score goals," Ndlanya concluded.
"A player like Phathutshedzo Nange can score goals as well, and he needs to start doing so." They have players in the team who can score goals, and they need to come out now."
During the previous transfer window, Amakhosi were linked with Royal AM centre forward Victor Letsoalo and Al Ahly striker Luis Misquissone.
Ndlanya stressed that the duo's success at the Naturena-based behemoths was not certain.
"I don't want to pass judgment on players," he added, "but some may be good at other teams and struggle when they come to Chiefs, which is a major club."
"Letsoalo is a good player, and he might have had a chance with the Chiefs." However, as I previously stated, current players must begin assisting the squad by finding the back of the net.
"It occurs all across the world when players get hurt and others come forward to fill the void."
Chiefs are now in 12th place in the league table, with only one win in six games, but Ndlanya is sure that Amakhosi will turn the corner.
"I don't think they're having trouble because the strikers aren't playing." "I believe confidence is low right now because they aren't receiving outcomes," he continued.
“We've seen in matches that they can't string together a few passes, but I believe they'll figure it out soon."
On Saturday, the Chiefs will play Chippa United in a league match at FNB Stadium.
