Parker Misfiring – A Worry For Chiefs?

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Kingston Nkhatha was booed left, right and centre by the fans while at the club because of his inability to slot clear-cut goal scoring opportunities. In the process, some fans totally forgot what his actual role was, and the work he did off the ball.

Another striker who is adored by the Chiefs fans has also been misfiring as of late. Yes, Bernard Parker’s goal return this season in the league has been far from impressive. Is this a cause for concern for coach Stuart Baxter and his technical staff?

Last season in the Absa Premiership, Hond managed to win the Lesley Manyathela Award as the league’s top goal scorer, albeit with only 10 goals.

Currently, Orlando Pirates striker Lehlohonolo Majoro, Polokwane City’s Puleng Tlolane and Free State Stars hitman Moeketsi Sekola are at the top of the scoring charts with eight goals apiece.

Despite winning the award last season, many expected Hond to do everything in his power to improve on his goal ratio, as ending the season with 10 goals in the league is not exactly a major success.

With only three goals to his name in the league this season, is Parker’s goal scoring record a cause for concern?
