Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has explained what will be important for Lazarous Kambole going forward after the Zambian striker bagged himself a goal over the weekend.
Kambole netted his first goal of the season and only his second since joining Amakhosi in 2019 when Chiefs cruised to a 4-0 win over Gavin Hunt's Chippa United side at FNB Stadium, as the Soweto giants recorded their first DStv Premiership victory since August 25.
The striker, who is in the final year of his contract with Amakhosi, was placed on the transfer list, but an injury to Samir Nurkovic and the unavailability of Leonardo Castro means Baxter might need to rely on the player a bit more.
"I think more important for Laz is that he's had a very good week's training. I don't think Laz is the same type of striker as a Bernard Parker or a Khama Billiat. He is one that's going to work in behind back fours and we've got to get to know him and use him to do that. So, it's important for him to start timing his movements and know when to go link with the players and I think we've got to know that as well.
"I said to him before the game, 'You are going to go on at some stage and you are going to go on confident because you had a very good week's training'. He went on and he was confident. The goal, quite rightly, should be a big thing for him because he can draw a line in the sand and from now, he can kick on. We will see where that leads us."
