Cape Town - George Maluleka believes Kaizer Chiefs will respond with some strong performances following a slow start to the 2016/17 campaign.

The Glamour Boys are still searching for their first win of the season after recording defeats to Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City in the Premiership and MTN8 respectively.

While a section of the club's supporters will no doubt be concerned by the club's form this year - Chiefs have won just once in their last 14 matches played in league and cup competitions - Maluleka feels it is just a matter of time before Amakhosi start to string together some positive results.

He wrote on his official Instagram account: "We never lose but we learn. There will always be the negative people. We just need to knuckle down and keep pushing ourselves. We will bounce back strong."

The central midfielder joined Chiefs in 2014 from SuperSport United, and this could prove to be a pivotal season for the player whose contract is set to expire in 2017.
