Johannesburg – The criticism that greeted Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs after their loss to Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday night hasn’t shaken coach Ernst Middendorp’s belief that they will get over the line in the Absa Premiership.
Chiefs have endured a roller-coaster ride in their bid to consolidate their spot at the summit of the log standings since the restart of the season, having started with a 1-1 draw against fellow championship hopefuls Bidvest Wits.
In their second game Chiefs came across as the rightful “champions elect” after coming from behind the defeat relegations-threatened Polokwane 3-2 thanks to a starring performance from striker Samir Nurkovic.
However, attacker Khama Billiat is getting more frustrated after failing to score since September against AmaZulu. But his coach says they are aware of his situation and are giving him all the support he needs during these trying times.
“We know it hasn’t been a great season for Khama, but everybody knows that he has a huge potential and we can only support him and put him in the next movement, and expect that he can do better,” Middendorp explained.
