Following Kaizer Chiefs’ exit from the MTN8 on Tuesday, after a 2-1 aggregate defeat to Orlando Pirates, many Chiefs fans are asking why Lehlohonolo Majoro wasn’t involved in the game earlier.
Majoro came on late in the game, missing a glorious chance to win the tie for the Amakhosi in the dying moments of the match.
Although the striker has featured in eight games for Chiefs in all competitions so far this season, five of them coming on as an impact substitute from the bench, he has yet to find the back of the net this campaign.

Meanwhile, Kingston Nkhatha, whose place in the team is so often maligned by the Amakhosi faithful, has featured in just five games, while not even making the match day squad on four occasions.
While Nkhatha has also failed to score so far this season, the Siya crew recently did a break down of what Nkhatha offers to the Chiefs squad when he plays and it is something much broader than just his prowess in front of goal.
Another variable in the argument is that it is unknown how Majoro and Nkhatha perform in training sessions at Naturena and it is likely that those performances help make up Stuart Baxter's mind when choosing his team.
Bernard Parker’s form at present means that he all but picks himself for Baxter’s side and Knowledge Musona has scored two goals in his last three league games. However, there are still those who are calling for Majoro to lead the line for the Glamour Boys.
Do you think Majoro should be starting for Kaizer Chiefs?
