Johannesburg - Former
Bafana Bafana midfiedler Linda Buthelezi believes Kaizer Chiefs need to
have a serious look at their poor finishing after they went a fourth
consecutive game without a win.
The Amakhosi were eliminated from the Telkom Knockout at the weekend
after Free State Stars beat them in a penalty shootout. This result
followed three 0-0 draws in Premiership and Telkom Knockout fixtures.
Buthelezi praised Chiefs' recent performances, despite the defeat,
but emphasised the importance of improving their goal-scoring.
"There is no doubt the team has been playing well but playing well
without scoring goals won't win you games. Chiefs has to score goals.
They create chances but most of them they don't convert," he told Soccer
"If they can at least score half of the chances they create they can
easily win games. They really need to work on their finishing because
that's what wins games."
Chiefs can consider themselves unlucky to have been knocked out of the Telkom Knockout competition by bogey team, Free State Stars as goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni put in a man of the match performance by making crucial saves to deny the Amakhosi.
