Khama Billiat promises Kaizer Chiefs improvement in front of goal


Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat is wary of the troubles they have been experiencing up front but assures they are working on improving.

Chiefs have been struggling in front of goal in recent times but managed to turn their fortunes around when they beat Chippa United 4-2 in their Nedbank Cup semi-final on Saturday.

Billiat, who has also found the going tough with his own form, also marked his return to the side with a goal and assist, as well as the Man of the Match award.

Though he has now managed 13 goals in all competitions this season, the Zimbabwean international has not quite hit the sort of form he was expected to after starting his first campaign at Naturena off on a bright note.

“As players, we always want to contribute as much as we can, but some things like injuries are things you’re not in control of,” said Billiat.

“But anytime you’re given a chance, you want to give everything, and I just hope and wish, and trust my efforts will be something worth looking at and seeing how I contributed to the team.

“As strikers, we haven’t been scoring as much as we wanted to, and we’re trying by all means to work on combinations that will help us create more chances.

“And it’s something we are working on by supporting one another, trying to give each other confidence so that whoever is given a chance on the day can be on the score sheet.”

This will be put to a further test when Amakhosi host Golden Arrows in a league enoucnter at the FNB Stadium this evening (19h30).
