Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits he is unsure who forms his best strike partnership after an indifferent start to the season.

Edward Manqele and Camaldien Abraw started upfront in both of Chiefs' last two games before the international break, a 3-0 win over Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout preceded by a 1-1 draw with Ajax Cape Town in the Premiership.

However, Komphela revealed both players are short on match fitness and said he was still testing combinations with the like of Siphelele Mthembu, David Zulu, Bernard Parker and Bongani Ndulula all fighting for places upfront with Manqele and Abraw.

"It's true in the last two games we started with Edward Manqele and Camaldine Abraw, but that's just one of the combinations we have," Komphela told Soccer Laduma.

"We have top strikers at the team who all can make different combinations. But Manqele and Abraw did very well. We drew one and won the other game.

"Both players are not yet 100% game fit and we have to give them more game-time so that they can reach that fitness where we can say they are on top of their game."
