Chiefs lacking confidence - Tovey

2016-03-23 16:25

Johannesburg - Former Kaizer Chiefs captain Neil Tovey believes that the Phefeni Glamour Boys have been lacking confidence recently, following their sixth consecutive game without finding the back of the net.

The Absa Premiership reigning champions have played more than 540 minutes of competitive football without scoring a goal, something which concerns the 1996 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) winning skipper as far as the team morale is concerned.

Tovey said that the Amakhosi are being too cautious at back which is part of the reasons they no longer attack in numbers as it was the case last season.

“I think they are just being over cautious, especially at the back,” said Tovey.

“It also has to do with the team confidence because when they were on song, they used to attack in numbers, getting more numbers into the box.

“And that was last season, and this season they are not doing that.

“They are too scared to make mistakes; they are too scared to get on with the job because they fear to make mistakes that would cost them.

“They have a good quality within their team but the likes of Bernard Parker and George Lebese have lost their touch in front of goals.”
