Williams: Play Two Strikers And Win The Derby!

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker, Mark Williams, believes that both coaches should be brave and play two strikers in the Soweto Derby this weekend, but equally thinks that unfortunately that will not be the case.

Chiefs’ coach, Steve Komphela, has been using Camaldine Abraw and Edward Manqele upfront for the Amakhosi in recent times, while Thamsanqa Gabuza and Kermit Erasmus have been in fine form for Eric Tinkler’s Orlando Pirates, particularly on the continental front.

Williams has urged both Komphela and Tinkler to be brave in this weekend’s Soweto derby and start with two strikers upfront but thinks that it is unlikely that will happen.

“My only concern is whether both coaches will start with two strikers or one. Play two strikers and win the game! I like it when coaches play two strikers,” Williams told Soccer Laduma.

“Then you can see the ability of the one striker helping the other striker to get more chances to score. Unfortunately, I foresee both coaches playing with one striker.

“I see a lot of teams this season have problems in central defence. That’s a hole where you can try and attack them. You’ll find that one of the central defenders is good in the air but lacks pace.

“For example, Eric Tinkler might start with Rooi Mahamutsa, but sometimes the player, as good as he is, comes up with wild tackles. But, for me, if he starts with Kermit Erasmus, it’s going to be a good game because he’s on form.”
