Chippa United head coach Lehlohonolo Seema has admitted concerns over his side’s lack of prowess in front of goal since the resumption of football in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Biological Safe Environment (BSE).
After just one win in five matches since the restart, Chippa are not wholly out of the relegation woods as yet as they need a point to retain their status in the Absa Premiership.
Seema’s troops will tackle Golden Arrows in their last game of the season on Saturday afternoon at Orlando Stadium.
The ‘Chilli Boys’ have only scored two goals in the PSL Bio Bubble with Seema acknowledging that there is a problem upfront, although he applauds the commitment and fighting spirit from his men.
“It is work in progress. I’m sure you can see Chippa. The fight is there. The commitment is there,” said Seema.
“It’s just that the team you see lacks a bit of confidence, especially in the box there. It’s a squad that needs a lot of work, we are thin, and we definitely need to strengthen.”
Chippa are 12th on the log standings, three points above the relegation zone heading into their last match of the campaign.
“We are struggling a bit, we don’t have a big squad, the games, [congested] but unfortunately we have to play, I am with the fight, it is something we can build on for next season, that’s for sure.
“Hopefully, we don’t have to worry much in the last game, but we still have to go and fight…we will manage,” concluded the former Bloemfontein Celtic mentor.
