Bruce Bvuma has been struggling to get back into the number one position at Kaizer Chiefs after he was dropped from being the first-choice goalkeeper. Bvuma’s last appearance was against Amazulu after Chiefs were beaten 4-0 on 13 January 2023 in Moses Mabhida Stadium. However, the 27-year-old is optimistic that his turn will come again. Bvuma believes that if he works hard, it will pay dividends, but that it will not be easy because Brandon Peterson is having a good spell in goal.
“For me, at Chiefs, we have very good goalkeepers, and the competition is very high and at the moment Brandon is doing so well. We, as other goalkeepers are giving him all the support he needs. I mentioned he’s doing well, and you can’t expect the coach to make changes because Brandon is doing so well for the team.
“As I am not playing, I just have to keep on working hard and making sure that I am ready because you never know what might happen. The coaches are telling us that we have to keep on working hard and to be ready when our chance comes. Every player wants to play but the thing is that we have 30 plus players in the squad, and you can’t play each and every player. Everyone that is picked on the day is doing well and that won’t just change unless the coach decides otherwise.” Bvuma told the media.
Brandon Petersen has been very instrumental for Chiefs, having played 7 times in the league conceding 4 times and has kept a clean sheet on 4 occasions. The 28-year-old has a 65 percent clean sheet rate and kept 2 clean sheets in a row. Chiefs fans will hope that the 28-year-old goalkeeper keeps up his good form as the team prepares to face Golden Arrows.
In the last 5 games, Chiefs have won 2 games, lost 2 and drawn once with the KZN-based side. However, Chiefs has the last laugh as they won their last encounter 2-0 courtesy of goals from Bimenyimana and Edmilson.
