Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs forward Bhongolethu Jayiya believes he can make a positive impact in the first team by showing positional versatility.

Jayiya has struggled to establish himself at the club since arriving from Cape Town City ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, although he feels the best is yet to come in 2018/19.

The 28-year-old featured for the Glamour Boys' MultiChoice Diski side on Sunday when they beat Golden Arrows 1-0 in KwaZulu-Natal.

Speaking to KickOff website, he said: "Well, the main thing is Chiefs have got a different style of play that I'm getting used to, you know what I mean.

"I'm a person who likes to be on the line but now I have to play inside, play more as a number 10 and everything.

"So that is another interesting factor that I need to bring to my game, which is coming [along] very nicely. As time goes, it's going to keep on going [better]."

Jayiya will no doubt hope to be involved when Chiefs clash against City in the Absa Premiership on Saturday.
