Chiefs Coach Reacts To Nurkovic's 'Disturbing' Form

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Gavin Hunt says Samir Nurkovic's struggles in front of goal are disturbing after the side's 2-1 loss to AmaZulu on Wednesday afternoon.

Hunt, who recalled the likes of Itumeleng Khune, Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Eric Mathoho, felt Happy Mashiane's forced early on disrupted the side's plans.

“Disappointing again, making a change in the first five minutes, changing the balance of the team. It was working well in the first half. I thought we did quite well, getting a few times behind," Hunt told SuperSport TV.

“So making the change, the balance goes a little bit. But there was nothing in the game, I thought we did ok. We could’ve snatched it ourselves and obviously we got a bit of a lucky goal and that what’s happened."

“We made a change in the department and there was another mistake so that’s what it is, but we got to keep soldiering on and keep believe and keep working.

“We just felt that with the shape change and the change of the first five minutes, we needed to change the shape of the team and you got to do that. So that’s what we did and then obviously at the end we’re chasing a little bit and we had to do it again because of the situation,” he added.

The Amakhosi had chances particularly through Nurkovic late on to force a draw, as Hunt touched on the forward’s barren run.

“We came back and we even had some good chances. I don’t know if Samir should’ve scored there with the header. He hasn’t scored now in how many games? So it’s a bit disturbing there," he added.

“But we can’t always rely on him we should be doing better in other areas. Our final ball wasn’t as good as it should be, but as I said one error, right at halftime again. As I said, we had to change the team and it doesn’t help you."
