Kaizer Chiefs are playing without a focal point at the moment as a result of injuries to Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro, and that makes them dangerous.
This view is held by SuperSport United goalkeeper and captain, Ronwen Williams, who spoke to the media this week ahead of the Tshwane side welcoming Amakhosi for their DStv Premiership clash on Sunday.
Amakhosi have recently had to look for other options to give them the attacking threat, and although it took a while, the combination between Khama Billiat and marquee signing Keagan Dolly appears to be bearing fruit.
Chippa United were at the receiving end of a thrashing last weekend with Billiat setting up Dolly to score twice and the latter returning the favour for the Zimbabwean to also get a goal in their emphatic 4-0 league victory.
“Obviously knowing defenders, they prefer playing against the bigger and stronger strikers that they know,” Williams told journalists.

“But now they will be facing Khama and Keagan, who move so much – the main thing for the defenders is to track the run. Pick it up early because we know how they want to play and we know they’ve got a lot of pace. But in saying that, we’ve got to stop the supply, if that doesn’t come then they won’t be a threat. It’s what we’ve been working on, so hopefully things can be good for us.”
SSU are second behind Mamelodi Sundowns on the table, while Chiefs will be desperate to win to move back into the Top 8 and close the gap on the leaders.
