Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane has conceded that the side may need to follow Orlando Pirates’ route in securing a striker coach to improve the club’s goal-scoring woes.

Amakhosi suffered a third consecutive DStv Premiership loss when the side fell 1-0 to log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns at the FNB Stadium in Soweto on Saturday.

The defeat sees Zwane’s side slip out of the top five on the log table, down to sixth position as both Sekhukhune United and Orlando Pirates collected wins in their respective matches to leapfrog The Glamour Boys.

Among the club's supporters' frustrations this season, has been Chiefs’ inability to capitilise on goal scoring opportunities. Amakhosi have not scored a single goal since the start of the 2023 and Zwane has admitted that the club may have to turn to the services of a striker coach – similar to neighbours, Orlando Pirates.

"We might look to strengthen that department of maybe getting a striker coach who can help us because there’s so much going on in the game," Zwane said post-match.

"The game has evolved, so if we can’t get it right as coaches. Then maybe we’ll have to go that route.

Neighbours and rivals Pirates are already enjoying the fruits of appointing striker-training specialist Scott Chickleday at the start of the year. The Buccaneers have scored seven goals in their last two matches.
