Much praise has been heaped on Mandla Masango’s turnaround in form, as he got off to an empathic start despite being transfer listed initially. So, could Siyabonga Nkosi follow in his footsteps?
The midfielder struggled to break into the first team at the start of the campaign, and even had a strange moment during the game against Bidvest Wits where he was stopped from coming onto the field due to his nails being too long.
With the club’s fixture schedule becoming more taxing, with cup competitions and the league race tightening up, Stuart Baxter has been forced to rotate his squad and feature Nkosi more regularly.
The trust shown in him with a start against Township Rollers in Botswana this weekend has paid off, as he scored a goal against Shakes Ngwenya’s team on Saturday to take Chiefs through to the next round.
When on the field, Nkosi has started to show some promising form and he certainly looks like he is enjoying his game.
With his contract expiring at the end of the current campaign, he will be hoping to continue with this great start to 2015 and earn an extension.
Khosi fans, do you think Nkosi could save his season like Masango?
