Only Michelle Katsvairo has managed to register a league goal this
season, while the likes of Edward Manqele, Bernard Parker, Lewis Macha,
Edmore Chirambadare are yet to get off the mark.
In addition, the Glamour Boys have not scored in three consecutive
matches from open play and have recorded just nine league goals in eight
matches in 2016/17.

Stars on Sunday, Komphela has said that his team are hard at work in
attempt to end the dry spell in front of goal.
He told reporters: "From a team perspective it is a concern we are
not scoring goals. For the strikers, I just hope this does not get into
their heads that it becomes a heavy weight that means they cannot
properly apply themselves.

getting a goal. The primary responsibility of any forward is to score
goals and when those goals are not forthcoming, it batters their
The AmaKhosi next face Free State Stars at Goble Park in a Telkom Knockout quarter-final where Komphela will be hoping his strikers find some goal scoring form.
