Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs' troubles in front of goal don't appear to be just a first team problem with Chiefs' MultiChoice Diski Challenge coach Arthur Zwane also expressing concerns about his side.

Zwane, who made his name as player for the Glamour Boys between 2000 and 2010, whore captain's armband for Amakhosi's MDC outfit when they failed to register a goal in Sunday's 0-0 draw with Highlands Park.

The struggles to hit the back of the net seems to replicate the form currently being shown by the club's senior side, with Michelle Katsvairo the only striker to register a league goal in 2016/17.

In addition, the Steve Komphela-coached team have recorded four goalless draws in the current campaign, and are seemingly short on form when it comes to hitting the back of the net.

With that said, Zwane admitted after the 0-0 draw with the Lions of the North that work needs to be done if this situation is to be changed at the club.

"We develop our players to be good on the ball technically, we don't play route one. We played very well but what was disappointing was that we didn't have enough firepower in front of goal and were also not clinical enough," Zwane told reporters. 

Chiefs are currently sixth in the MDC standings with a four-point deficit behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Steve Komphela's men face a tough task to remedy their scoring issues in front of goal as they next face the current CAF Champions League holders, Mamelodi Sundowns in a PSL encounter at Loftus Versveld on Saturday.

Kick off is at 14:30.
