Are Chiefs Missing Nkhatha Yet?

Good morning Khosi fans. Last night our boys got 2015 off to a sluggish start in our 0-0 draw to Bloemfontein Celtic, and a lot has been made of our lack of action in front of goal. So, are we missing Kingston Nkhatha yet? 

Playing upfront as an out-and-out striker was Bernard Parker, who played his first competitive match since returning from Equatorial Guinea, and he was far from the potent hitman that ended 2014.

Creating little to no threats on goal, Parker worked hard but struggled to generate any notable efforts, while the attacking substitutes were also seen as ineffective. 

Siphelele Mthembu replaced Siphiwe Tshabalala in the 69th minute. He made no impact in the direction of the game and was guilty of wasting a good effort late in the half, while David Zulu was on for too short a time to rattle the Celtic backline.

When reflecting on last night’s game, it is undeniable that there was a lack of attacking impetus and many have raised the subject of Nkhatha. 

The Zimbabwean striker was a constant subject of controversial debate, with many boasting differing opinions of him…

There was one thing that you could not take away from him and that was his tireless work rate in creating space for the likes of Parker. That was evidently lacking last night, and the overall performance meant that there is a need for Chiefs’ strikers to develop an understanding with each other.

It may be too soon to pose this question, but were we missing the services of Nkhatha last night?
