Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs striker Michelle Katsvairo has admitted that he experienced a goal drought during his time with Chicken Inn in Zimbabwe's Premier League.

So far the forward has managed just one goal in nine appearances for the Glamour Boys since joining from the Gamecocks before the 2016/17 campaign.

However, his struggles in front of goal are also shared by the rest of the strikers at the club with no one else in this department having recorded a league goal this season.

Nonetheless, Katsvairo is unperturbed and believes the goals will come as they did previously during his time back in his home country.

"It happened last year when I was at Chicken Inn. I went for the first 10 games without scoring and I was creating for others, and after that the goals started to come. I ended up scoring 14 goals," he told KickOff: 

"But my aim is I want to be a team player as I have said before. And if I don’t score I will work for the team. I'm sure from now on and since the account is open, more good things are to come."

The Amakhosi strike-force has come in for criticism with ex-players such as former midfielder, Linda Buthelezi calling for an improvement in finishing. The club's highest goalscorer is defender Lorenzo Gordinho, who has three strikes to his name.

Coach Steve Komphela's task won't be getting any easier though as they next take on reigning CAF Champions League holders, Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Versveld Stadium on Saturday.

Kick off is at 15:30.
