In the absence of regular goalkeepers Itumeleng Khune and Daniel Akpeyi, fans feel that this weekend’s Telkom Knockout semi-final against Maritzburg United is the perfect opportunity for Bruce Bvuma to stake his claim.
With Khune out and Akpeyi suspended, the onus is on 24-year-old Bvuma to help guide Amakhosi to a TKO final berth, where either Mamelodi Sundowns or Golden Arrows lay in wait.
SL Supporter @ Ofentse Kakapa Mahatlhe feels there is only one way for the Bafana international to silence the haters.
“For Bvuma to do well, he needs to perform tremendously in disbelief of his haters. That's all I can say to this young man! He must step up, the way he did, against @ChippaUnited on the 6th of this November month! Whereby, no one gave him any chance to deliver! But guess what was the outcome of that particular game, a clean sheet! Whether it is Itu Khune or Bruce Bvuma in goal, we'll march on to the @TelkomFinal!
He is not the only one who feels it is time for Bvuma to come of age. SL Supporter @Mestabenefeet feels that he needs to eliminate silly errors from his game.
“Bvuma must pull up his socks. He commits the same errors as Akpeyi, one day they are good and next boom, they surprise you with some silly and costly mistakes.”
Despite the doubts surrounding Bvuma, SL Supporter @ T4_MORE is more concerned about the absence of key figure Erick Mathoho in the heart of the Amakhosi defense.
“While Bvuma will have to up his game, I’m more worried about Tower’s suspension, but with quality players we have, anyone from the bench can rise to the occasion.”
Do you think Bvuma has what it takes to see Chiefs over the line on Sunday?
