Baxter Comments On Strikers For Next Transfer Window

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter feels it would be unfair to announce any interest in signing a striker when the January transfer window opens. 

Chiefs are thin upfront at the moment with out-and-out strikers, having to rely mostly on Serbian forward Samir Nurkovic, who is not in good form at the moment and is yet to rattle the back of the net this season.

Leonardo Castro is unavailable at the moment, while Lebogang Manyama and Khama Billiat are options for Baxter upfront. Veteran Bernard Parker is an option in the role upfront, having already found the back of the net this season in the MTN8 against Mamelodi Sundowns in August. 

"I don't think the ones who have played, have played badly. We've created lots of chances. I think against Baroka we must have created more chances in a PSL game than any team I've ever had. For the Sundowns, we had 10 strikes and they had two. We had six on target and the combination of composed finishing and great goalkeeping kept us out. Given that, I don't think it's fair on those players to be announcing my interest in bringing in more strikers," Baxter told the media.

"I think I've got to give them a chance and look at them first, get everybody fit and then make a decision if we need to strengthen."
