Cape Town - The representative out of favour Kaizer Chiefs striker Bongani Ndulula insists injuries have hindered the forward's progress at the Soweto club.

The 26-year-old has struggled for regular game time since joining Amakhosi from AmaZulu in 2014 and came in for criticism for his poor performance during the four league games he has played under coach Steve Komphela this season.

His agent Tim Sukazi says the player is concerned with his lack of game time at Naturena and added he is confident Ndulula would grab the opportunity if given the chance to prove himself.

"Look, I would have been surprised if he is not concerned," Sukazi told Goal website. "In fact, it's not discussions between him and I. I want every player of mine to be concerned when they are not playing so he is no exception to that."

"You will recall when he joined Chiefs, he joined with some injury strain which sort of delayed his comeback.

"When he eventually got back, the season was on and there were other strikers doing well there."

Sukazi says that the forward is still fighting for his chance to represent Chiefs in a starting berth.

The agent adds that Ndulula believes that Steve Komphela will eventually call on him as he has been working around the clock to show the coach his worth.

Meanwhile, Chiefs are set to travel to the Mbombela Stadium to face Mpumalanga Black Aces in an Absa Premiership tie.

Kick-off is at 19:30 on Tuesday, April 12.
