Cape Town - Legendary Kaizer Chiefs striker Humphrey Mlwane believes Camaldine's Abraw's struggles up front this season stem from him spending too much time outside the box.

Mlwane called for attacking players such as George Maluleka and captain Siphiwe Tshabalala to make more of an effort to feed Abraw the ball so he didn't have to come so deep to look for ways of getting into the game.

"The problem with Abraw is that he is always playing on the side," he told Goal website. "I think if he can stay more inside and play on top he can help the team score more goals.

"Some of the other guys around him like Maluleka and Tshabalala can help by accommodating him in that role too because they will then feed from his lay-offs.

"At the moment if he scores one goal and then he doesn't score again the next game then it is very, very difficult for the team.

"If a team wants to win the league they need to get a proper goal-scorer, a guy who can score every game. Chiefs don't have that kind of a striker," Mlwane concluded.

Amakhosi are currently third in the league standings, 10 points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns with just nine games of the season to play.
