Golden Arrows coach Steve Komphela believes striker Knox Mutizwa could have easily scored 18 League goals so far if he had converted the scoring chances created for him.
The Zimbabwean netted his 9th League goal of the season during the 1-all draw against Polokwane City on Sunday.
In December last year, Komphela urged the striker to be more serious about his game if he wants to score more goals. Mutizwa had gone 3 games without a goal prior to the Polokwane match since the comments by Komphela who describe the lack of goals by the striker as a pity.
“Knox (Mutizwa) could have been at 18 goals now. The number of chances we create, he gets and he doesn’t convert it’s just a pity. He is better than the 9 he is sitting on,” said Komphela.
The 26-year-old is joint 4th (with Peter Shalulile) on the Absa Premiership top scorers list with 9 goals.
Gabadinho Mhango leads the pack with 12, followed by Samir Nurkovic and Bongi Ntuli both on 10 goals.
Komphela also feels their League position of 8th will change a lot during the remainder of the season given the fact that the League log is not stable.
“It will never stabilize until the last match all that we chasing was to make 26 (goals) and then you get 4 you are out of the mess and then you start working towards 40 for the top 8 so we are on 24 we still need 2 matches to win then we say we are guaranteed safety” He said.
Arrows will host Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, January 25 at Moses Mabhida Stadiam.
