Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs forward Bernard Parker has pointed out that despite a recent good run of form, the club's strikers are not scoring enough goals.

The Glamour Boys currently top the Premiership standings after recording three wins in a row, however, Michelle Katsvairo is the only striker in the squad to have hit the back of the net.

The 26-year-old scored his first goal for Chiefs in a recent 2-0 victory over Free State Stars. With that said, the likes of Edward Manqele, Lewis Macha, Edmore Chirambadare and Parker are yet to get off the mark.

In addition, Parker is struggling to make the starting line-up under Steve Komphela, with his only start coming in Amakhosi's opening-day 2-1 defeat to Bidvest Wits.

Nonetheless, the 30-year-old has been quick to point out that scoring goals is what is missing from their striking department. 

He told reporters: "I know that as a team we are doing well, but we can improve from what we have done so far this season and win more games and, as I have said, we have to score goals as strikers."
