Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has identified one area he still needs to work on in Nkosingiphile Ngcobo’s progression.
Ngcobo has been one of the star performers for Amakhosi this season, recently scoring valuable goals which have helped the Soweto giants climb into the top eight.
The young midfielder scored a brilliant goal against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila earlier this week, cleverly flicking the ball over Nicholas Lukhubeni before volleying past Washington Arubi in goal. That goal took his tally for the season to three goals.
“The idea is to try play into Samir (Nurkovic), but we can’t do that all the time. If we can get him (Ngcobo) high up the field, which we can’t do at the moment because of other situations. We need to get him high up the field because he has got some qualities. I think he has three or four goals this season, I am not sure. But we need to get him into those better positions more often because he’s got the ability,” Hunt told the media after the game against TTM.
“At the moment we probably need to work on his defensive side of the game, which is something he is going to have to learn. But he is getting better and better.”
