Why The Wheels May Be Coming Off For Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs have been looking rather bland as of late, with poor results accompanied by bad performances on the field.  Could this be that Amakhosi are now beginning to falter, albeit this early in the second half of the season?

The Fan Park crew will now take a look at some of the reasons why the wheels may be coming off for Chiefs going into the second half of the season.

Defensively Unstable

In Chiefs' 2-0 defeat at the hands of SuperSport United in the Absa Premiership a couple of days ago, coach Stuart Baxter opted to play with three powerful centre-backs. Worryingly, SSU's first goal came from an uncontested cross, with Eric Mathoho, Morgan Gould and Tefu Mashamaite ball watching. The second goal was down to poor marking, as Dove Womé punished the Chiefs defence with smart movement in the box. This was poor defending from three experienced defenders, and should it continue, Chiefs could leak goals.

Strikers Still Not Scoring

This is by far the most worrying issue facing the Chiefs technical team. None of the current strikers have been prolific in recent times and going into the second half of the season, that trend looks certain to continue.

Unconvincing Results

Amakhosi have only managed to gather one point from a possible six in the second half of the season. Chiefs were also far from dominant in the CAF Champions league with a 2-1 win over Township Rollers. To avoid completely losing the confidence and momentum that saw them claim 19 wins a row, something needs to change or one can only but think it could go downhill from here.

With that said, are the wheels coming off Chiefs?
