Baxter: Billiat is looking sharp

Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter says he's been impressed by the form of Khama Billiat in training.

The 30-year-old Zimbabwean attacker has struggled with injuries in recent seasons and had to be withdrawn in the Carling Black Label Cup win against Orlando Pirates last weekend.

Billiat went down with what looked a serious knock, but his substitution was labelled merely a precaution.

And ahead of facing Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 quarter-finals this weekend, Baxter hinted that the striker should play a role at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday.

The Chiefs boss said on Soccer Laduma: "Khama is doing excellently in training. He is looking sharp, enthusiastic. He is probably a better all round player than I thought he would be, but that's what happens when you work with players - you get to know them better.

"Whether that means he will start, or he is a very interesting guy from the bench, the next couple of days will tell me. But certainly Khama is looking like he is enjoying the work we are doing and, two, he is showing his quality."
