Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Pollen Ndlanya believes a lack of consistency is hurting the club's chances of winning a trophy this season.

Amakhosi remain one of only three unbeaten sides in the Absa Premiership after the opening six fixtures, but they occupy a disappointing fifth place in the league having only managed two wins.

Chiefs also made it to the final of the MTN8 competition, but were unable to defend their title, losing 1-0 to Ajax Cape Town.

The Glamour Boys advanced to the quarter-finals of the Telkom Knockout with an impressive 3-0 win over PSL leaders Platinum Stars over the weekend, but it was their first win in four games in all competitions.

"What is lacking from them is the consistency. It can't be a loss this weekend and win the other weekend if they want to replicate the form the team had under Stuart Baxter. It won't work for them. But Steve is an experienced coach, he will build the team," Ndlanya told Goal website.

The forward also believes Camaldine Abraw and Edward Manqele will form a deadly partnership upfront and implored Komphela to resist the urge to break them up after Siphelele Mthembu came off the bench to score against Dikwena on Sunday.

"They need to continue to play them, it will work. It's good to have many strikers so the team can get on the scoresheet," he said.

"Mthembu scored from the bench, which is good for them. They need competition upfront. It's all about scoring goals at the end of the day."
