Chiefs' Transfer Business To Focus On Key Area?

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt feels Amakhosi should have at least one player in double figures this season and he could prioritize the striking department once the transfer window opens to find a deadly forward to help the goal-shy Soweto giants.

The striking department remains one of Hunt's biggest areas of concern, with the club bagging 23 goals in their 22 DSTV Premiership matches up to this point. Amakhosi's top scorers in the league are Leonardo Castro, Lebogang Manyama and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, who have all scored four goals this term.

Their top scorer from last season, Samir Nurkovic, only has two goals this season, a major concern. The striking department will no doubt be an area Hunt looks to bolster next season, with Bradley Grobler and Ruzaigh Gamildien emerging as targets for the new campaign, as reported by the Siya crew.

Amakhosi were beaten 2-1 by Cape Town City at FNB Stadium on Wednesday, suffering their seventh league defeat of the campaign. Chiefs dropped to 11th spot after the defeat. 

"I think we have had a lot of opportunities in that position. We should have someone in double figures, that's for sure. But it has not been, obviously because of unavailability and a lot of missed games and due to a lot of other reasons and there's one main factor. But that's out of my hands, but that's not the be and end all. But certainly we have missed a lot of opportunities, but we have also let in a lot of goals this season. In these type of games you can defend better and still win these type of games," Hunt told the media after the game.

"I know what's needed and what's not needed, but right now it does not really matter what I think. It's the situation and it's a tough situation, but we've got to look forward now and try to finish well."

It does not get any easier for Amakhosi with a clash against Mamelodi Sundowns coming up on Sunday at Loftus Stadium.
