Musona's Role Made Clearer

Stuart Baxter appears to have finally revealed how he intends using striker Knowledge Musona in his starting line-up.

The Zimbabwean hit-man came off the bench to great effect against Platinum Stars this past weekend and it was his 68th minute header that won the day for Kaizer Chiefs, with the Soweto giants winning 2-1.

Musona has been showing very impressive form for both club and country in recent matches, which will be encouraging for coach Baxter ahead of the MTN8 second leg semi-final against Orlando Pirates on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old has now scored three goals in three consecutive games for Chiefs and Zimbabwe.

Additionally, Bernard Parker's recent good run of form means Chiefs ought to be in high spirits ahead of the Soweto derby. He explained his confidence in edition 839 of Soccer-Laduma. Parker said, "If we can score more goals than they did in the first leg, then we can go to the final."

Interestingly, after much speculation about how he might use the player in his attack, Baxter has opened up about where he potentially sees Musona fitting into his line-up.

He told the club’s official website, "We are rotating the strikers. Knowledge (Musona) has been working hard in training. He is giving 100% and if you watch carefully, you will notice that we played him as a shadow striker. He is a very intelligent player. I am pleased with Knowledge.”
