Lucky Baloyi fighting for game-time at Kaizer Chiefs
Posted: 4 February 2016 Time: 12:47
Kaizer Chiefs central midfielder Lucky Baloyi is determined to become a regular under coach Steve Komphela at Naturena.
Baloyi, who shares the same position as Amakhosi stalwarts Willard Katsande and Reneilwe Letsholonyane, has made four starts in the league this season.
'Sheriff' has largely struggled for game-time at Chiefs since making his debut in 2010/11, prompting a loan spell at Moroka Swallows last term.
Baloyi is therefore eager to make the most of every opportunity that comes his way.
"Yes, I'm coping and it is a good thing to have that competition because it keeps you fighting all the time," says Baloyi.
"If you get the chance you have to grab it because if you check our middle it's not easy... so when you get a chance you just have to use it. But I'm still waiting for that chance because I want to be a regular player."
Baloyi adds that the Glamour Boys can yet make up for the disappointment of losing in the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout finals earlier in the season.
Chiefs are 10 points behind log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns with 13 games left, while they will start their Nedbank Cup campaign against arch-rivals Orlando Pirates on March 5.
"There is still hope because there is other teams at the bottom who are fighting for their lives.
"What we can do as a team is to focus on collecting points and when it comes to Nedbank Cup... we are still going to make sure that we get one trophy and that is our focus because we have nothing left."
