Defensive Unit Make Up For Misfiring Strikers

I struggle to understand how our team, Bidvest Wits, with the strikers we have on our books, fail to find the back of the net at a frequent rate.

We have Calvin Kadi, the once promising Ryan Chapman, our Ethiopian import Getaneh Kabede, Sthembiso Ngcobo and our recent arrivals in Henrico Botes and Chris Katongo all at the club.

This should be an attacking line-up that should leave defensive wary, but we have struggled to induce that fear into our opposition.

Last season, we were among on of the lowest rank striking teams in the league. Out of the teams that finished in the top six, only Orlando Pirates scored less than us with their 30 goals to our 34.

So far, this year has been pretty much the same. We have only scored once in each of our three league games, while against Kaizer Chiefs in the MTN8 we couldn’t breach their wall.

Still, the reason why we are still able to finish higher than the rest is due to our defensive record. Something that I am proud about…

We had the second best defence in last year’s campaign, conceding just 20 goals- three more than Kaizer Chiefs’ 17.

This year, we have only managed to concede one, and so far only Ajax Cape Town and Chiefs have conceded as few.

As you can see, our defence and attacking unit function in perfect unison and that gives us a winning factor.
