Akumu and Billiat level on Chiefs goals


Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Anthony Akumu recently opened his goalscoring account to become the club's 12th different player to find the back of the net.

Akumu, who arrived in Naturena in January from Zambian side Zesco United, has been slowly working his way into the team, managing six appearances in all competitions thus far.

The lanky 27-year-old finally got off the mark with a tap-in goal that further sparked an impressive come-from-behind 3-2 win over Polokwane City last Saturday.

He has since reflected on his milestone that also saw him draw level with teammate Khama Billiat in as far as goals scored for the club this season is concerned.
