Middendorp Hits Out At Chiefs Keepers, Chance For Bvuma?

Not for the first time this season, Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp has lashed out at one of his goalkeepers following yet another howler. 

It was new recruit Daniel Akpeyi who cost the team in Saturday afternoon’s 1-1 stalemate away to Polokwane City in the Absa Premiership.

Amakhosi had taken the lead through defender Daniel Cardoso’s penalty in the first half, but their celebrations were cut short when Walter Musona’s attempt from range slipped under Akpeyi’s arms for the equaliser.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Middendorp couldn’t hide his frustration – the club having been forced to buy a new goalkeeper last month because of Virgil Vries’ costly errors since first choice Itumeleng Khune suffered a shoulder injury that ruled him out for the rest of the season. 

“If I had an explanation why we have conceded such goals against Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City then I would give you an answer,” said Middendorp.

“This is not something to explain because it’s just irritating. It’s not comfortable for all of us (to deal with). I had not seen any other possibilities for Polokwane City to score until we conceded such a goal, with all due respect. They defended well and all that, but we scored two goals on the day.”

Bruce Bvuma, who has now become the second choice goalkeeper at the club since Vries dropped down the pecking order, has only made one league appearance this season. Could he be in line for more after another blooper?
