Let's take a closer look at what they had to say... 


Kaizer Chiefs' goal machine Caleb Bimenyimana continued his goal scoring form in their win over Golden Arrows on New Year's Eve, but hobbled off in the second half of the encounter, and is a doubt for Amakhosi's next fixture against Sekhukhune United. 

Zwane on the other hand isn't worried about the Burundian's potential injury layoff, pointing out that he'll happily use youngster Wandile Duba in his place. 

Here's what the readers had to say on the "Zwane Identifies 'Top Class' Caleb Bimenyimana Replacement" story:

"Coach where are the players you promised us? You promised to get one defender, winger and a striker in January. Now January is here, you're promoting young players. It good to promote them but also get some experienced players," says Mlekeleli. 

"Our couch Zwane should use our development team because our senior players are used to making silly mistakes, especially when playing against Sundowns. Please, from this weekend's match, use more energetic players rather than the famous names. Khama always wastes time by falling down, When he is not playing, our team wins games. Please drop him," says Alfred Mokadi. 

Peter Shalulile's extensive injury layoff may have exposed Downs' lack of depth in that number nine role, but the emergence of the young Cassius Mailula has worked perfectly for the league leaders.
