With just eight goals from the ten games he has been in charge, Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson has said that he might need to bring a specialist striker coach to Nuturena.

Chiefs played out another goalless draw on the weekend as they shared the spoils with Moroka Swallows, meaning they have now gone four games in a row without a win.

With tenth-placed Golden Arrows next on the horizon, Johnson knows he has it all to do if he is to salvage some respectability from the season.

Speaking to the media he said: “Our solution is that all 30 players in the team must put up their hands and make sure we come here on Wednesday and play better.

“We know the concern arises when we play someone in worse conditions than us. But you must know that anybody who plays for Chiefs always puts up their hand,” he said.

Asked specifically about the need for a striker coach he said: “It’s always been a concern since I started.

“I think in whatever team I have coached before, it’s always been my concern. Football is always nice when we see goals being scored.

“All my life, I have said I want to have a superior goal difference to the opponent.

“If you score three goals, I score four. That’s something I work on continuously.

“So, just like you are worried, I am worried.

“So yes, we are working on it and, hopefully, it will come right for us eventually.”

Johnson then went on to take a swipe at the media, blaming them for some of his side’s lack of confidence: “It’s not about anxiety but mentality. When we don’t have you guys writing and talking on social media, it’s better for the players.

“That is the generation of the athletes that we are dealing with. They are all about the things that the media like to do.

“Maybe I need to get into that space and my strikers will score goals.

“But it is a concern for me, the club and has always been my concern whenever I’ve worked,” he said.
