The man Kaizer Chiefs supporters have been waiting for is finally back and he made an immediate impact.
Though it was his second appearance of the 2020/21 campaign, Samir Nurkovic made his first start of the DStv Premiership season against AmaZulu on Wednesday and it did not take long for the Serbian to get his name on the scoresheet.
Without the likes of Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat due to injury, Nurkovic stepped up in the 11th minute of the game.

Sithebe’s failed attempt at clearing Dumisani Zuma’s cross fell to the deadly right foot of Nurkovic, who made no mistake with a first time shot to beat Veli Mothwa in the Usuthu goal.

The Soweto giants held on for the much-needed victory, which moved them four places up from 14th to 10th. It was just their second win in the league this season and Amakhosi fans will be hoping that their striker can lead them to more victories that will see them climb up the table.
