Should Komphela Opt For Parker-Paez Partnership?

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela loves to play with a one-man strike force, which in turn allows his team to exploit the flanks, but should he perhaps try Bernard Parker and Gustavo Paez up front together?

For the past few games, the 49-year-old has started "Die Hond" up front as a lone striker, with a four men covering behind him in what seems to be a 4-1-4-1 formation.  

Playing Parker has paid off as he has scored two goals in his past two games, but he still isn't scoring as often as he should.

Perhaps adding someone to play off, like Paez, might be the answer… It would allow Parker to move around more fluidly, and he will have someone closer to him to play off and move around, as opposed to the midfield that sits behind him now.

Paez has only scored one goal this season, and his chances of finding the back of the net may also improve if he has the dynamic Parker next to him.

This, of course, would mean shifting the formation around once again, but it may well be the answer to Chiefs' attack, which has had to rely heavily on their defenders and midfield for goals.

 Do you think Komphela should try implement the "Pa-Pa" partnership?
