Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter reveals that Ovidy Karuru is likely to find more game time during the second half of the season.

According to KickOff, the Zimbabwean midfielder has only made one appearance for Amakhosi and Baxter confesses that the former OH Leuven player was far from match fit.

“Ovidy came to us unfit and he also had a long schooling before he understood how we play. He has just started now to show signs that he is arriving,” said Baxter.

“We need to be patient.

“These are things that happen within a squad, and whenever you make a signing it is not always someone who is going to go straight in like some would expect.”

However, Baxter admits that it won’t be easy for the player to break into the squad as the team has been working extremely hard following their emphatic run of positive results last year.

Karuru will until then put in the hours to get a showing in Chiefs’ first PSL encounter of the year when the Glamour Boys travel to Free State to tackle Bloemfontein Celtic.

The game is scheduled for Wednesday, February 11.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
