Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma says he will continue to work hard for his place in the side, with Brilliant Khuzwayo set to depart.

Khuzwayo played in Chiefs' last game of the Premiership campaign in 12 May's 2-1 victory against Ajax Cape Town, and after the encounter gave an emotional goodbye to the club and supporters.

With the back-up stopper headed out of the exit door, it means Bvuma will more closely compete with Itumeleng Khune for the starting spot in goal in 2018/19.

As such, the 23-year-old says his target is more playing time in future.

He told the Sowetan: "As a player you always set goals for yourself. So whether he is still there or not does not mean I’m not going to play‚ or something.

"But it is an opportunity for me to get more game time. We set goals for ourselves in terms of doing this and this and this. But you never know - we'll see what's going to happen."

Having been promoted in the early part of 2017, the keeper made his debut in April 2017 in a 2-2 draw with SuperSport United, before being involved in a 3-2 loss to Cape Town City.

The player also made his full debut for Bafana Bafana in the same year.
