Khune's Troubled Run Since His Return To Goal

After a battle with injury, Itumeleng Khune returned to the poles for Kaizer Chiefs in March this year, and he has endured nothing short of poor results since. Can you remember the figures?

The goalkeeper spent a large portion of last season nursing ankle and knee injuries, but he was welcomed back to the first team against Platinum Stars on 9 March.

His return to the team coincided with a 2-0 defeat, and, subsequently, a run that has seen the club win just one game in 11 competitive fixtures he has played in. Their last win came against University of Pretoria, who were eventually relegated from the PSL, back in April.

Prior to Khune's return to the team, Chiefs had experienced a run of four consecutive triumphs; all while going on an unbeaten run of up to six results.

On Friday evening, Khune and company fell to a 1-0 defeat against PSL new boys Cape Town City in the MTN8 quarter-finals, and that loss meant Chiefs were eliminated from the competition.

This occurred just days after Steve Komphela's men lost their league opener to Bidvest Wits, extending their winless run in a competitive fixtures to seven games. 

Here is a breakdown of Chiefs' results since Khune returned in goal.

2-0 defeat to Platinum Stars

1-0 defeat to ASEC Mimosas

1-0 defeat to Jomo Cosmos

0-0 draw to ASEC Mimosas

1-2 win over University of Pretoria

3-1 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns

2-0 defeat to Orlando Pirates

0-0 draw to Bloemfontein Celtic

2-2 draw to Free State Stars

0-2 loss to Chippa United

1-2 loss to Bidvest Wits

1-0 loss to Cape Town City. 

In fact, Chiefs secured more points during Khune's absence (26) in the league last season than when he featured in goal (20), and he turned out in half of the club's league fixtures.

Do you think Khune should remain as Chiefs' first choice in goal?
